Like the Vikings of old, we sail west from Reykjavík. There lies a region of mountains, glaciers, fjords, and icebergs. The icy realm of Greenland awaits.
 
Greenland’s east coast is just a short voyage from Reykjavík. Breathtaking fjords define this seldom-seen region. Aboard the Ocean Endeavour, we’ll explore in comfort—and Zodiacs will be standing by for scenic excursion opportunities. 
 
Whales and seabirds are abundant here. Photographers, birders, and hikers will be in awe. 
 
Villages around Greenland’s southern tip offer glimpses of Greenlandic culture. Bask in the Unartoq geothermal springs. Explore the ruins of Brattelid—a settlement founded by Erik the Red!
 
Kangaamiut is a quaint fishing village. Greenland’s capital, Nuuk, offers shopping and dining. We’ll sail mighty Sondre Stromfjord to our destination, Kangerlussuaq—gateway to Greenland’s ice cap.

Iceland’s cosmopolitan capital, Reykjavík (“steamy bay”) was established in 874 AD. Powered by geothermal energy, Reykjavík is widely considered one of the cleanest, greenest cities on Earth.

Despite centuries of relative isolation, today Reykjavík is a contemporary city with plenty to see and do. The National Culture House preserves treasures like the Poetic Edda, and the Norse Sagas in their original manuscripts. We depart Reykjavík in the evening aboard the Ocean Endeavour.
