Arctic Express: Greenland's Northern Lights

Visit operator website

Run by: Peregrine

Reference number: PPEED16

From: £4970.00

Taking in both the world’s largest national park and its longest fjord system, this trip makes no compromise on size as far as nature is concerned. And with return flights in and out of Greenland from Reykjavik, you’ll be seeing as much of it as possible in a relatively shorter space of time. Arriving in Constable Point, you’ll spend a day drifting through the iceberg-potted waters of Apelfjord, cruising about in search of Arctic fox and musc ox by Zodiac and sizing up the gigantic Walterhausen Glacier. Landings at Blomsterbugten, Ella Island and Ittoqqortoormiit will provide the chance of hikes through tundras, visits to ancient Thule settlements and encounters with local Inuit culture. Both figuratively and literally, this voyage will feel like a journey to the ends of the earth. Highlights/r/n
