This is just a small taste of all you can expect on this first-class expedition cruise with Albatros Expeditions’. Navigating along Greenland’s old inter-coastal routes, we can indulge in the multitude of beautiful natural wonders, including “Iceberg Capital of the World”, Ilulissat, and the nearby UNESCO-protected Icefjord. We will pay a visit to the small town of Qeqertarsuaq on mountaineous Disko Island where we can experience the ageold “Kaffemik” tradition in the community house, and we’ll cruise close to the calving glacier of Eqip Sermia.
