Scoresby Sund, Greenland

Greenland Sailing Expedition

Live on board a traditional sailing ship while you explore the natural wonders of Scoresby Sund in East Greenland. While sailing through the unspoiled arctic landscape or hiking along picturesque trails, you'll get to observe some of Greenland’s sensational wildlife in their natural habitat and see phenomena such as glaciers, icebergs and ice crusts. You'll also visit Ittoqqortoormiit, one of the most isolated villages on the western hemisphere, where you can experience the historical and cultural roots of the traditional Inuit community. It's all part of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to explore one of the most remote fjords on Earth.
