Cruises to Greenland
Follow in the footsteps of Erik the Red and live your own epic saga on a Greenland cruise. Often part of an Arctic expedition to other such northern destinations as Iceland and the Faroe Islands, a Greenland cruise boasts such amazing ports of call as Narsarsuag, Nanortalik, Sisimiut, Nuuk, and Ilulissat. A cruise really is the best way to see the stunning landscapes of icebergs, glaciers, fjords, mountains and cliffs as well as cultural sites such as Brattahild’s viking ruins and the famous Greenland mummies as you circumnavigate the world’s largest island. Here the population is sparse and mainland roads limited, making coastal travel the most convenient and scenic option - although dog sled and snowmobile rides are also a popular pastime during your Greenland cruise! With most sailings departing from UK ports such as Newcastle, Dover and Tilbury, as well as Reykjavik for fly cruises, a cruise to Greenland is all about immersing yourself in nature, whether it’s a hot spring, whale watching trip or even getting to witness the Northern Lights.
