In The Wake of the Vikings: A Voyage from Iceland to Greenland
Greenland’s east coast still beckons explorers from Iceland. Breathtaking fjords define this seldom-seen region. Whales and seabirds are abundant here. Photographers, birders, and hikers will be in awe.
Bask in the geothermal springs. Explore the ruins of a settlement founded by Erik the Red! Visit a quaint fishing village and Greenland’s bustling capital, Nuuk. Sail mighty Sondre Stromfjord to Kangerlussuaq—gateway to the ice cap.
Sail west, like the Vikings: spectacular, surprising Greenland awaits!
Follow the Norse explorers
Iceland became a Viking kingdom as more and more Norse ventured Northwest from the British Isles and the Faroes. The boldest adventurers went on to Greenland—and so will we!
- Cross the Denmark Strait from Iceland to Greenland, following the Vikings of old
- See the sparsely populated, seldom visited east coast of Greenland
Glaciers and icebergs
Greenland’s vast ice cap pushes huge rivers of ice—glaciers—down to the sea via a myriad of stunning fjords.
As the glaciers meet the ocean, tide and temperature combine to break off icebergs, revealing unearthly colours in crystalline shapes. A photographer’s paradise!
Vikings lived here!
The Norse ruins at Hvalsey hint at the story of the Viking settlements of Greenland. For four centuries, Norse wayfarers managed to make a living as sheep farmers in this rugged land, building farmhouses, churches, and other trappings of European life.
Another Norse site, Brattahlid, was Erik the Red’s former estate. Today, it’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Experience Greenland’s unique blend of cultures
The mix of Danish and Inuit influences is very evident in Greenland. Charming villages of colourful wooden homes reveal a distinctly Scandinavian sensibility.
Yet these same villages are often surrounded by suburbs of barking sled dogs, and racks of kayaks stand by the shore. Hunters and fishers come and go with fresh seal, reindeer, or locally caught cod. It’s the authentic Greenland experience.
The Ocean Endeavour
Outfitted with twenty Zodiacs, advanced navigation equipment, multiple lounges, and a top-deck observation room, she is purpose-built for passenger experiences in remote environments. The Ocean Endeavour boasts a 1B ice class, enabling her to explore throughout the Arctic summer.
