Under the Northern Lights: Greenland & Iceland
Under the Northern Lights: Exploring Iceland & East Greenland will take you to two of the world's last remaining wilderness places.
When you take a cruise through the Vestfjords of Iceland and the north-east coast of Greenland, where you'll find the world's largest fjord system, you'll see a wide variety of stunning and wild landscapes teeming with classic polar animals like polar bears, muskoxen and seals. While in the Arctic, you can see gigantic icebergs and towering bird cliffs, learn about Inuit culture firsthand at Ittoqqortoormiit, and explore historical Thule sites. Explore via zodiac cruise and land ashore to hike the tundra, perhaps even opt to kayak in this icy region!
The northern lights are a stunning sight to behold, and you could be lucky enough to see them if you travel far enough north!
Viva's Best Bits...
This far north, and at this time of the year you might be lucky enough to witness the magical northern lights dancing across the sky.
Search for wildlife like seals and polar bears, and keep an eye out for grazing muskoxen, as 40 percent of the world’s population lives in Northeast Greenland National Park.
Spend time with Inuit people in Ittoqqortoormiit, the most northerly community in East Greenland and learn about their way of life, plus visit ancient Thule sites steeped in history.
