Baffin Bay Secrets

  • Overview
    Cruise on an incredible itinerary to discover Viking ruins as you follow in the footsteps of Norwegian explorer Erik the Red. Step aboard the Le Soléal in Reykjavik for a 14-day expedition cruise to southern Greenland. Sailing along the steep eastern coastline, the ship will plunge into deep southern Greenland fjords and continue up past mountains worn away by glaciers and covered with rich, abundant flora. Accompanied by a team of anthropologists, ornithologists, geologists and experts in marine mammals, you can get up close to the amazing wildlife: seals, whales and maybe even polar bears. To the west of the country, you will sail amongst the blue icebergs of the Narsarsuaq region and the northern hemisphere's largest icebergs in Ilulissat.

  • Itinerary
    • Day 1 - Kangerlussuaq, Greenland

      From 1941 to 1992, the town of Kangerlussuaq in Greenland was home to an American military base. Nowadays, thanks to its international airport, it has become a transit point for travellers seeking adventure in the Far North. Located to the north of the Arctic Circle, this town is the starting point of magnificent discoveries surrounded by unspoiled nature. Indeed, just a few dozen kilometres from there it is possible to get close to the Greenland ice sheet, the largest body of ice in the Northern Hemisphere. From Kangerlussuaq, admire also the superb landscapes of tundra in autumnal colours, where Arctic hares, musk oxen, Arctic foxes, reindeer, falcons and eagles live.

      *** Please Note: This voyage begins and ends in Paris, France ***

    Inspiring Inuit communities

    Baffin Island Inuit live on Baffin Island, the largest island in the Arctic Archipelago and in the territory of Nunavut. Baffin Island has been inhabited by the Inuit for thousands of years.

The Baffin Island Inuit (like other modern Inuit) share biological and cultural links with their Thule ancestors.
