Inclusions

  • Scoresby Sund is one of the largest and most beautiful fjord systems in the world. Long, narrow channels, strewn with cathedral-like icebergs and flanked by sheer rock walls, reach deep into the glaciated heart of Greenland. Those who appreciate huge expanses of untouched wilderness will love it here. The tundra landscape of Scoresby Sund is home to wildlife such as musk oxen and Arctic hare. Throughout the region we also find ancient Thule archeological sites and historical trappers’ huts. At the modern Inuit village of Ittoqqortoormiit we have the chance to visit a museum and witness the antics of Greenlandic sled dogs.
  • This voyage is coordinated to bring you to an ideal location during the right season for viewing northern lights, so you have a great chance of experiencing this otherworldly celestial phenomenon, also known as aurora borealis. Commonly clear nights and the perfect latitude make Scoresby Sund a premier destination for watching the lights. Spacious open decks on Sea Spirit and typically calm waters inside the fjords provide an ideal platform for admiring and photographing these beautiful displays. A gorgeous setting of mirror-calm water, snowy mountains, and luminous icebergs adds to the overall wonder of the experience.
  • On our way to and from Greenland we have the chance to explore along the west coast of this scenic and diverse country. In the ruggedly beautiful Westfjords we visit the historic fishing port of Ísafjörður. This small town embodies Iceland’s trademark blend of rich cultural heritage and contemporary charm. On the Snæfellsnes peninsula, the picturesque Kirkjufell mountain and Snæfellsjökull volcano are famous features of the Icelandic landscape. The success of local merchants and fishermen are evident in traditional villages. The surrounding seas are home to a variety of seabirds and whales.
