GREENLAND (Kalaallit Nunaat)
The Best of the Arctic Three Perspectives of South Greenland
Remote, authentic and one of the most welcoming places on the planet, South Greenland is a region as rich in spectacular scenery as it is in history. The southern tip of Greenland boasts the greatest variety of landscapes in the country—from serene, sheltered waterways surrounded by towering cliffs to the massive Greenland Ice Sheet to snow–capped mountains that reach for the sky. Luckily for visitors, these diverse landforms translate into a wonderland where you can enjoy the greatest variety of guest experiences in the Arctic. South Greenland offers the chance to experience three unique regions with distinct natural attributes. There’s the Wild East coast where you’ll keep your eyes peeled for marine mammals while savoring the dramatic ice–scapes, alpine feel and absolute remoteness of the region. Then there’s the Arctic Patagonia
side of South Greenland, known for its stunning fjords, iconic peaks, remote settlements, and some of the most scenic hiking you’ll find in the world. And finally, there are the Westlands, where you’ll get to explore the impressive Greenland Ice Sheet up close—as well as the starkly different green heart of the island where the fertile soil gives birth to a bounty of home–grown produce, enabling local farmers to live off the land. Cruising in sublime comfort aboard the newest ship in our fleet, Ultramarine , our floating expedition base, we’ll explore farther than ever before, positioning ourselves deep in the protected waters of majestic fjords each day. With the largest portfolio of Zodiac- and helicopter–supported excursions in the industry, you’ll be able to curate a one– of–a–kind Greenland experience that speaks to your passions.
Thanks to the two twin–engine helicopters onboard Ultramarine , you’ll take to the skies for stunning aerial views over the polar landscapes, set foot on the Greenland Ice Sheet, experience our Heli–hiking program (suitable for all skill and interest levels), and enjoy the best views of Greenland during our Exclusive Heli Landing excursions. For the first time, the stunning beauty of remote South Greenland is accessible to all! In the cool solitude of the evening, on clear nights, you’re likely to marvel at the skies and witness one of nature’s most impressive and intimate displays: the Northern Lights (Aurora borealis ). On this experience-packed voyage, you will be able to savor and explore the best of South Greenland from every perspective: land, sea and sky.
