 Day 1-6: Reykjavik, Kangerlussuaq & Baffin Island
Explore Iceland’s capital city of Reykjavik before heading to Kangerlussuaq for embarkation. From there, you will cruise across the Davis Strait and learn more about the history and politics of the Arctic as well as its fascinating wildlife, geology and climate, and the majestic sights to be explored. Each day presents a new adventure and you could find yourself meeting the Inuit community of Qikiqtarjuaq or seeing the towering mountains and colourful tundra of Sam Ford Fjord.

Day 7-12: Lancaster & Smith Sound
Keep an eye out for whales, walruses and seals. Lancaster and Smith Sound also have some of the highest densities of polar bear populations in the world, if fortunate, you might spot one hunting for food. You will explore the uninhabited passage of Smith Sound before leaving Canada for your next destination: Greenland.

Day 13-18: Exploring Northwest & West Greenland
Sail alongside impressive icebergs and stunning glaciers to one of the most northernmost towns in the world, Qaanaaq, where the locals will share their culture and traditions with you. Take in the beauty of Melville Bay, once an important place for whaling fleets. Home to impressive icebergs of all shapes and sizes, the region is ideal for Zodiac cruising.
The Western part of Greenland is filled with dramatic glaciers, spectacular mountain ranges and traditional communities like the charming town of Uummannaq, quite possibly the most picturesque place in Greenland. Finally, you will head to Ilulissat Icefjord and observe this mesmerizing river of ice.

Day 19-20: Kangerlussuaq - Reykjavik
Enjoy your last Zodiac ride before you disembark in Kangerlussuaq and get the group charter flight back to Reykjavik. The next day, you will travel back home or perhaps spend some a few days exploring Iceland’s capital.
