Two weeks of challenging ice navigation into one of the remotest areas in the world
After crossing the Denmark strait, we start a long journey along the coast of East Greenland: navigating through icebergs, entering the fjords, hiking, and communicating with locals who still live their traditional way. Glaciers, rocks, and wildlife that you can see only there. The trip ends by passing through the Cristiansund strait to the very different southwest shores of Greenland.

ROUTE HIGHLIGHTS
Wild Encounters
and Trails Less Travelled:
Denmark Strait crossing:
Echoes of the Past:
We're setting off from Isafjordur, crossing the vast Denmark Strait that may take us up around 2 days. This leg of the trip includes offshore passage, navigating through fog, and encountering icebergs, offering a thrilling yet challenging experience.
We mark the difficulty
of this stage as 4 out of 5.
Greenland’s wildlife watches us as we pass, curious and cautious.
Our hikes are not just walks but dialogues with the land itself,
revealing hidden lakes and vistas that few eyes have seen.
Sailing through Prins Christians Sund, we’re transitioning from the icy embrace of the East to the greener, gentler South. Here,
abandoned villages speak silently of times gone by, their stories carried on the wind.
That means you should be prepared
for the challenging conditions. It comes with the possibilities of a strong wind,
big waves, low temperature, and offshore passages for a couple of days.
Talking about this exact stage, it shouldn’t be too wavy, but some of the challenges are: several long passages, fogs at times,
and navigating between the icebergs.
Glacier Voyages
and Midnight Magic:
Fjords
and Local Life:
We arrive to Kulusuk, where icebergs stand like guardians
of the sea. The midnight sun keeps our path lit, casting a surreal glow over the ice. It’s a journey through time, past towering glaciers
that whisper the earth’s ancient stories.
Each fjord from Isortoq to Umivik Bay has its own tale, told by locals living much as their ancestors did. Their traditions are a bridge
to the past, offering us a rare glimpse into a life led in harmony
with nature’s grandeur.

A Tapestry of Tales:
This isn’t about following; it’s about joining in. Our skipper might guide us, but it’s our shared efforts that carve our path through the ice. Here, everyone is a crew member, everyone is an explorer.
We’re not just passing through; we’re immersing ourselves.
From ancient Celtic sites to the raw, unfiltered beauty of the cliffs, every stop is a deep dive into the soul of Greenland.
Our culinary journey is as varied as the landscapes we sail. Each meal
is a celebration of the local bounty, from the freshest seafood
to the warming embrace of a cider shared among friends.
Our voyage is woven from stories—those we hear, those we live,
and those we’ll tell. This journey binds us, not just as travellers,
but as a community forever connected by the shared adventure
of a lifetime.
