Visit the unspoilt wilderness of Greenland and experience nature at its most untamed and spectacular. North East Greenland is a veritable wonderland of wildlife-spotting opportunities. Avian encounters abound with a variety of seabirds including the northern fulmar, migratory Brünnichs guillemot and beautiful snowy owl. Terrestrial giants like polar bears and musk ox also call the world's biggest non-continental island home.  

Explore the magnificent East Coast Fjords, the world's largest fjord system. Pass glistening icebergs and active volcanoes whilst feeling the spray of thundering waterfalls. Enter Kaiser Franz Josef Fjord, a remote and rarely visited fjord system that lies within the North East Greenland National Park, and enjoy countless opportunities for exploration. Cruising through King Oscar Fjord you will get the chance to marvel at the geological beauty of the mountains. Head south along the coast of Liverpool Land, on a passage that is dependent on ice conditions, to reach Scoresby Sund, the world’s biggest fjord. Massive glaciers dump into this fjord, the birthplace of the famous big Greenland icebergs. Visit the remote Inuit community of Ittoqqortoormiit (Scoresby Town) to learn about their lifestyle in this remote and harsh environment.
