Discover an incredible range of biodiversity on the world’s largest island.

Explore a place that has given birth to some of the world’s most dominating icebergs, being home to Jakobshavn Isbraue, the largest glacier in the Northern Hemisphere. Step foot on one of the only two ice sheets on the planet (the other being Antarctica) and keep a watchful eye for its wandering residents covered with feathers, fur or fins. Seek whales close to the shoreline and spot playful seals and nesting birds. Soak in hot springs enveloped in mountains and ice after visiting settlements that are hauntingly beautiful while uncovering the history of the area.

Highlights of Greenland

Discover the world’s longest fjord system

Cruise through Scoresbysund, the largest and most expansive fjord system on the planet, neighbouring Northeast Greenland National Park. Named after the explorer William Scoresby who mapped the area in detail in 1822. Beyond the icy walls, peer out at the massive mountain peaks covered in snow. This region holds uncompromised beauty as far as nature is concerned.

Marvel at the Arctic’s most active glacier

Witness the calving ice of UNESCO World Heritage-listed Ilulissat Icefjord, home to Sermew Kujalleq, the most productive glacier in the northern hemisphere. Get a closer look from a Zodiac at the mouth of the fjord. Found on Greenland’s west coast, this natural phenomenon sits on the edge of the open sea, giving birth to more than 10 per cent of icebergs in the region.

Excursions and experiences

 

Each of our tailored itineraries offer what we call ‘Peregrine Moments’. These experiences are shared yet highly personal, reflecting the candid style of our trips. Here are a few moments from a polar expedition to the Canadian Arctic.

  • Visit Northeast Greenland National Park, the world’s largest national park and neighbouring Scoresby Sound, longest fjord system witnessing an area of uncompromised beauty.  
  • Cruise around the southern tip of Greenland and unravel the mysteries of abandoned settlements.
  • Plunge into steaming hot springs, surrounded by mountain scenery and ice floe on the island of Uunartoq.
  • Call into small villages and the capital of Nuuk, delving into the history of areas that have been inhabited for more than 4,000 years.
  • Board zodiacs to trace the gleaming-blue front of Eqip Sermia glacier and visit Uumannaq, dotted with coloured houses and heart-shaped mountains.

Onboard experts

There's only so much you can read in a guidebook, especially when it comes to such rare and extraordinary locations. That's why we have a range of specialists onboard for every polar journey, from historians to marine biologists and hiking guides. With experts at hand, you can be assured that no question will be left unanswered. 

Annie – Marine biologist

"I love my job because everyday you don’t quite know what’s going to unfold. For me, a big part of it is about being able to educate and shift people's underdstanding of wildlife, and to give them an experience that will last in their memories for a lifetime"

Todd – Naturalist

"I’m a firm believer in conservation and creating awareness through education and sharing our experience. I love sharing the polar regions with guests, connecting people to the environment and using my job as a platform to teach people."

Wayne – Expedition guide

"The most important piece of advice I can give is to come here with an open mind and open heart. Take the whole experience in, from the vast landscapes, to the glaciers and the incredible wildlife that lives here." 

Wildlife

Each day brings the possibility of new wildlife sightings, including thousands of nesting birds; land-dwelling musk ox; humpback, minke and fin whales; bearded, harp and ring seals; and the elusive Arctic Fox.
