Itinerary:

EXPLORE THE LAND OF FIRE AND ICE ABOARD OCEAN DIAMOND

Discover the immense variety of the world’s biggest island on this grand tour of Greenland: the beautiful and fertile deep south with its fascinating Viking history; Nuuk, a modern capital in a traditional Inuit society; Ilulissat, the town of icebergs and its UNESCO World Heritage site, the Ilulissat Ice Fjord. All are part of this unforgettable journey aboard the Ocean Diamond.

Day 1  : Reykjavik

Our optional Air & Ground package provides a convenient arrival. Use your leisure time in Reykjavik to discover the unique charm of the world’s northernmost capital and book one of our pre-programs. Or explore the sights of south and west Iceland on a self-drive road trip (prices upon request). The SEAVENTURE docks in Old Reykjavik Harbor in the heart of the city, a five-minute stroll from the main squares, shopping and dining. The ship departs in the evening.

Day 2  : Day at Sea/Denmark Strait

Today we sail across the Denmark Strait towards Greenland, following the same maritime route used by Norse settlers more than 900 years ago. Enroute you can attend fascinating presentations by our Expedition Team members to prepare for your visit to Greenland. Or of course, you can choose to just relax and watch whales, dolphins and seabirds from the deck or from your cabin.

Day 3  : Ammassalik Island

The island is characterized by several glaciers, jagged peaks, rivers, lakes and waterfalls. There are vast green valleys and deep fjords with newly calved icebergs dropping off the ice cap into the sea. Tasiilaq, the largest town in East Greenland, is located on Ammassalik Island. With its population of approximately 2,000 people, the town is the gateway to explore East Greenland.

Day 4  : Skjoldungen Fjord

The Skjoldungen Fjord is bordered by towering mountains tipped with snow, ice-scraped valley sides with serpentine rivers of ice plunging into the sea. It is highly likely that the fjord was inhabited by Paleo-Eskimo (Inuit) nomadic people as early as 4,000 years ago. Surrounded by wild and pristine nature, it is quite common to see whales, bearded seals and various kinds of birds in the area.

Day 5  : Day at Sea/Prince Christian Sound

When conditions are favorable, we travel along the 70 mile (112 km) long Prince Christian Sound which connects the Labrador and Irminger Seas. In this narrow, often ice choked channel, we come so close to icebergs you can almost reach out and touch one. The force of Greenland’s massive inland ice cap pushes glaciers towards the sea, where large chunks of ice break off and become floating icebergs.

Day 6  : Qaqortoq

With 3.000 inhabitants, Qaqortoq is the largest settlement in South Greenland. In this charming town you can find lots of strikingly beautiful colonial buildings, dating from the establishment of the town in 1775. The area has a rich history, as it has been inhabited continuously since prehistoric times. You can still see traces of Thule and Norse cultures throughout the region.

Day 7  : Nuuk

Nuuk, the capital of Greenland, combines Arctic traditions and European urbanity. Founded in 1728 by the Danish-Norwegian missionary Hans Egede, this is the oldest town in Greenland. With around 16,000 inhabitants, Nuuk is a bustling metropolis with a modern lifestyle compared with the rest of Greenland. Visit the city sights on a walking tour that ends at the National Museum which exhibits the famous mummies of Qilakitsoq.

Day 8  : Sisimiut

With approx. 5,600 inhabitants, Sisimiut is the second largest town in Greenland. Sisimiut has a turbulent history, especially during the 18th century when the first Danish colony was destroyed by Dutch whalers who wanted to establish their own settlement. The Danes fought back and eventually recaptured Sisimiut after several fierce battles in the 1730s.  about the domination of the city. Heavy fighting between Dutch whalers and various European nations took place over the years. Because of itsthe flourishing shrimp industry, Sisimiut is one of theGreenland’s most prosperous richest cities today.in the country.

Day 9  : Ilulissat

In the morning the ship arrives at Ilulissat. The name means “iceberg” in Greenlandic and the town definitely lives up to its name – located at the mouth of the Ilulissat Ice Fjord, which is filled with enormous icebergs. The fjord has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2004. Enjoy the thunderous spectacle when icebergs break off from Sermeq Kujalleq glacier and plunge into the fjord. Sermeq Kujalleq is one of the most productive glaciers in the northern hemisphere and calves over 35 cubic kilometers of ice every year.

Day 10  : Uummannaq

Uummannaq is considered one of the most beautiful towns in Greenland. Located on a small island about 300 miles (483 km) north of the Arctic Circle, this tiny, picturesque village lies at the foot of a heart shaped mountain.

Day 11  : Disko Bay/Qeqertarsuaq

The small settlement of Qeqertarsuaq is located on the South Coast of Disko Island. In 1773 the first whaling base was founded there. Whaling has been of great importance to the town over the past two centuries. Hunting and fishing are still the primary occupations for the island’s inhabitants.

Day 12  : Kangerlussuaq

In the morning we reach the 120-mile (190 km) Kangerlussuaq Fjord and the town of the same name. It’s time to say goodbye to the SEAVENTURE. Charter flight back to Keflavik. Take a look at our Air & Ground package or this tour to enjoy a comfortable journey home.
