Hvalsey Church Ruin

Beautiful guided tour into the Hvalsey Fjord around the Arpatsivik Island to Hvalsey, where we visit the old Norse ruins as well as the church ruin which is the best preserved from the Norse period. A wedding in the church in 1408 is the last written evidence that we have from the Norse settlement in Greenland. Light refreshments included.

Hi! The cruise around Iceland was everything I hoped it would be. On board Ocean Atlantic we felt safe and very comfortable. This trip gave us unforgettable experiences about Icelands wildelife, fantastic landscapes, small towns, local culture and history. The organization on the ship , excursions to the mainland and with Zodiac boats were superb. Thanks for everything. We had so much fun and learned so much during this cruise. Best, Tracy Hopes
