    • Day 3 - At Sea - Towards Greenland

      Cruise from Iceland across the Denmark Strait to the east coast of Greenland. The Discovery Team will enthral you with their knowledge and passion for this region. From your suite's verandah look for whales.

    • Day 4/6 - Greenland East Coast Fjords

      Over the coming days explore Greenland's east coast, the fjords of Skjoldungen and Prins Christian Sund. Carving a breathtaking, naturally-formed path separating the mainland from the islands of Cape Farewell, Prins Christian Sund is one of Greenland's most scenic waterways. 105 kilometres in length, and flanked by magnificent glaciers and granite cliffs, this narrow passage is only accessible during the summer, when the largest ice blockades melt away. Eclipse brings you close to the glaciers, huge icebergs and imposing peaks for unmissable photo opportunities.

      Discovery: Take Discovery excursions by Zodiac to view ice formations, paddle the kayaks to hear the ice cracking or step onshore for landings.

    • Day 7 - Narsaq

      An agricultural town on the edge of a fjord, Narsaq is known for its Greenlandic 'cowboys', farms and interesting Norse history. Discover this quaint town and visit the Museum to learn about the Norse history

      Discovery: Take a Discovery excursion by Zodiac or kayak, or take a hiking tour.

    • Day 8 - Nuuk

      Nuuk means ‘majestic fjord views’ in Greenlandic. The capital and largest city in Greenland, Nuuk has been inhabited by many settlers over the centuries but the present town was only established in 1728. A guided tour through the picturesque Old Harbour reveals history and traditions that still remain strong.

      Freechoice -
      Marvel at the mummies in the Greenland National Museum, or try the local Greenlandic beer at Greenland’s largest microbrewery. Alternatively, learn about Inuit culture at the Nuuk Art Museum.

    • Day 9/11 - Disko Bay

      Spectacular days await as you cruise Disko Bay. Ilulissat is named from the Inuit word for ‘iceberg’. Formerly called Jakobshavn, the town is best known for large number of icebergs issuing from the nearby Ilulissat Icefjord, into which one of the world’s fastest moving and most active glaciers calves 46 cubic kilometres of ice annually. Listen for the rumbling sounds in the distance of the Sermeq Kujalleq glacier ‘calving’ icebergs.

      Discovery - Discovery excursions by Zodiac, kayak or go onshore for landings.

    • Day 12 - Kangerlussuaq > Copenhagen, Denmark
