East Greenland, Scoresby Sund, Aurora Borealis
Journey from Reykjavik, Iceland, to the far north, crossing the Arctic Circle. This voyage explores East Greenland, and the large fjord system of Scoresby Sund.
Along the way look out for whales, perhaps the elusive Narwhal, fantastic birdlife: fulmars, kittiwakes, gannets, and common guillemots, Arctic hares and musk oxen. Explore the remains of an old Inuit settlement abandoned around 200 years ago, and the town of Ittoqqortoormiit, where people still live, in one of the remotest places.
Highlights will include colossal icebergs and hopefully the spectacular Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights!
