Day-by-Day Itinerary

Please Note: All routes and excursions are provisional and subject to change as weather and sea conditions may affect the itinerary. Changes in the itinerary are expressly reserved.

Day 1: Reykjavik.

Our optional Air & Ground package provides a convenient arrival. Use your leisure time in Reykjavik to discover the unique charm of the world’s northernmost capital and book one of our pre-programs. Or explore the sights of south and west Iceland on a self-drive road trip. The Seaventure docks in Old Reykjavik Harbor in the heart of the city, a five-minute stroll from the main squares, shopping and dining. The ship departs in the evening at 8:00pm.

Meals: Dinner

Day 2: Day at Sea-Denmark Strait.

Today we sail across the Denmark Strait towards Greenland, following the same maritime route used by Norse settlers more than 900 years ago. Enroute you can attend fascinating presentations by our Expedition Team members to prepare for your visit to Greenland. Or of course, you can choose to just relax and watch whales, dolphins, and seabirds from the deck or from your cabin.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Day 3: Ammassalik Island.

The island is characterized by several glaciers, jagged peaks, rivers, lakes and waterfalls. There are vast green valleys and deep fjords with newly calved icebergs dropping off the ice cap into the sea. Tasiilaq, the largest town in East Greenland, is located on Ammassalik Island. With its population of approximately 2,000 people, the town is the gateway to explore East Greenland.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Day 4: Day at sea-Prince Christian Sound.

When conditions are favorable, we travel along the 70 mile (112 km) long Prince Christian Sound which connects the Labrador and Irminger Seas. In this narrow, often ice choked channel, we come so close to icebergs you can almost reach out and touch one. The force of Greenland’s massive inland ice cap pushes glaciers towards the sea, where large chunks of ice break off and become floating icebergs.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Day 5: Qaqortoq.

With 3.000 inhabitants, Qaqortoq is the largest settlement in South Greenland. In this charming town you can find lots of strikingly beautiful colonial buildings, dating from the establishment of the town in 1775. The area has a rich history, as it has been inhabited continuously since prehistoric times. You can still see traces of Thule and Norse cultures throughout the region.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Day 6: Qeqertarsuasiat.

Qeqertarsuasiat is a small settlement with approx. 200 residents, mainly living from hunting and fishing. Visit the small mine and learn more about the extraction of precious stones.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Day 7: Nuuk.

With 16,000 inhabitants Nuuk is both the capital and the biggest city of Greenland. It combines Arctic traditions with European urbanity. Visit the city sights on a walking tour that ends at the National Museum which exhibits the famous mummies of Qilakitsoq.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Day 8: Sisimiut.

Sisimiut has a turbulent history, especially during the 18th century when the first Danish colony was destroyed by Dutch whalers who wanted to establish their own settlement. The Danes fought back and eventually recaptured Sisimiut after several fierce battles in the 1730s. Heavy fighting between Dutch whalers and various European nations took place over the years. Because of its flourishing shrimp industry, Sisimiut is one of Greenland’s most prosperous cities today.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Day 9 Ilulissat.

In the morning we reach Ilulissat village in fabled Disko Bay. Ilulissat is located beside the Ilulissat Icefjord. Delight in the thunderous spectacle when icebergs break off from the glacier and plunge into the fjord. Sermeq Kujalleq is one of the most productive glaciers in the northern hemisphere.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Day 10 Uummannaq.

Uummannaq is considered one of the most beautiful towns in Greenland. Located on a small island about 300 miles (483 km) north of the Arctic Circle, this tiny, picturesque village lies at the foot of a heart shaped mountain.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Day 11 Disko Bay-Qeqertarsuaq.

The small settlement of Qeqertarsuaq is located on the South Coast of Disko Island. In 1773 the first whaling base was founded there. Whaling has been of great importance to the town over the past two centuries. Hunting and fishing are still the primary occupations for the island’s inhabitants.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner

In the morning we reach the 120-mile (190 km) Kangerlussuaq Fjord and the town of the same name. It’s time to say goodbye to the Seaventure. Charter flight back to Keflavik.
