ISLAND EXPERIENCES

Cruise Glaciers of Greenland


Cruise through a maze of rugged icebergs, beneath a curtain of fog that slowly dissolves as you glide through it, revealing giant glass-like glaziers that stretch across the horizon and tower high into the crystal clear blue sky. If you get close enough to these majestic sculptures you may even have an opportunity to hear the low rumble and cracking of ice, as an iceberg breaks off and plunges into the steel blue sea.



Recognised as the largest island in the world, Greenland boasts miles of unchartered icy territory with spectacular scenery. From snow-capped mountains, rugged icebergs, glass glaziers and icy blue waters, exploring the magnificent landscape, either on foot or by boat, is sure to leave you feeling in awe.

The Greenlandic waters are home to an extraordinary range of wildlife, including white whales, blue, sperm and humpback whales as well as narwhals. On land wolves roam the rolling hills, foxes hide in hidden caves and polar bears guard their icy territory.

During the summer months, from May to July, a natural phenomenon known as the Midnight Sun occurs. The Midnight Sun shines throughout the night, making icebergs and glaziers glow a soft pink and orange colour, allowing visitors to enjoy the beauty of their surreal surroundings, both during the day and night.

Another natural phenomenon that occurs during the winter months, from September though to April, is that of the Aurora Borealis, commonly known at the Northern lights. The lights are best seen at midnight, dancing amongst the stars as they light up the sky a magnificent kaleidoscope of colours.
