    Day 1: Kangerlussuaq, Greenland
    The Adventure Begins

    Kangerlussuaq is a former U.S. Air Force base and Greenland’s primary flight hub. Here we will be transferred by Zodiac to the Ocean Endeavour.

    With 190 kilometres of superb scenery, Kangerlussuaq Fjord (Søndre Strømfjord) is one of the longest fjords in the world. We begin our adventure by sailing down this dramatic fjord, crossing the Arctic Circle as we go and spending time on deck watching for aurora borealis.

  • Kanger fjord

    Day 2: Kangerlussuatsiaq Fjord
    Zodiac Cruise

    Defined by jagged mountain peaks, sheer bird cliffs, cascading streams, and calving glaciers, Kangerlussuatsiaq lives up to its Danish name, Evighedsfjorden which means “the fjord of eternity.” Whether by ship, Zodiac cruise, or kayak, a visit to the face of the glacier is truly a sublime experience.

  • Nuuk

    Day 3: Nuuk
    Museums, Shopping, and Cafés

    Nuuk, the capital of Greenland, bridges old and new. The old harbour region of town includes many buildings dating from the Danish colonial days, while contemporary Nuuk is known for great art, shopping, pubs, and cafes.

    The Greenland National Museum is one of Nuuk’s many outstanding features; the world-famous Qilakitsoq mummies rest here.

    Day 4: At Sea—Davis Strait
    Onboard Learning

    Our onboard presentation series will continue as we steam across Davis Strait towards Canada. This is an excellent time to enjoy workshops, watch a documentary, and get out on deck with your binoculars to look for whales, seabirds, and other marine wildlife.

    Day 5-7: Torngat Mountains National Park, NL, Canada
    Tundra Scenery & Wildlife Spotting

    Some of Canada’s highest peaks east of the Rockies are found in Torngat Mountains National Park. Here, Inuit of Nunatsiavut will be our guides in their spiritual homeland. Polar bears, black bears, caribou, falcons, and eagles are among the species we hope to spot. We’ll also be on the lookout for marine mammals. We’ll spend our time hiking, searching for wildlife, visiting archaeological sites, and Zodiac cruising.

  • Hebron labrador dennis minty

    Day 8: Hebron
    Poignant History

    This haunting site preserves a Moravian Mission station dating from the 1830s. The mission was abandoned in 1959, forcing the relocation of Inuit who resided there. In 2005, the government of Newfoundland & Labrador issued an apology to people affected by the relocations.

    Former Hebron residents and their kin continue to visit the site and to hunt and fish nearby.

  • Nain

    Day 9: Nain
    Inuit Cultural Experiences

    The administrative capital of Nunatsiavut, Nain is the most northerly community in Labrador. We’ll visit Illusuak, the stunning new cultural centre, and the beautiful Moravian Church among other community highlights.

    We always enjoy a warm cultural welcome here. Expect music, food, and handicrafts at this dynamic visit.

    Day 10-12: The Labrador Coast
    Hiking & Zodiac Cruises

    Along the Labrador coast we find coastal barrens, high subarctic tundra, high boreal forest, mid-boreal forest, and string bog. The area is dotted with islands and we'll select an expedition landing site based on the conditions of the day.

    Day 13: L'Anse aux Meadows
    Viking Archaeology

    L’Anse aux Meadows, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the only authenticated Norse settlement in North America. The archaeological remains found here in 1960 date to approximately 1000 CE. Amazingly, the location was first established by a close reading of the Viking sagas.

    Today, a superb interpretation centre and several reconstructed Norse-style sod buildings make L’Anse aux Meadows a must-see for any visitor to Newfoundland and Labrador.

    Day 14: Eastern Newfoundland
    Picturesque Villages & Charming Communities

    The east coast of Newfoundland is known for the dozens of picturesque villages that dot its rocky shores. We’ll find harbour in one of these unique communities. We look forward to a characteristically warm Newfoundland welcome upon our arrival. Photographers will have their work cut out for them capturing the special charm of classic island communities and picturesque coastlines.

    Day 15: St. John’s, NL, Canada
    A Fond Farewell

    Sailing into the port of St. John’s has to be experienced to be believed. Watch for locals waving from Signal Hill as we take on our pilot and enter the world-famous Narrows. The colourful houses of the Battery are always a hit with shutterbugs!

    Today we disembark the Ocean Endeavour. We will say our farewells in the cultural hotspot of North America's oldest city.
