Be one of the first to sail aboard the Brand New Fridtjof Nansen during her Maiden Season
(regional and premium class flights may be available on request)
Upon arrival, transfer to a 4★ hotel for your two night stay. Reykjavik is the world’s northernmost capital city. Norse settlers named the place Reykjavik (meaning ‘Smoky Bay’) after the columns of steam that rose from the hot springs in the area. The surroundings offer fantastic natural beauty with geysers, mountains, glaciers and geothermal baths that are well worth exploring
Transfer to the port and embark the brand new MS Fridtjof Nansen for your 15 night maiden expedition to the heart of Greenland during her maiden season
Leave Iceland behind and sail across the Irminger Sea. This crossing was used by the Vikings to migrate from Iceland to Greenland some 1,000 years ago. Enjoy introductory lectures on local history and biology
Many consider Qaqortoq one of the most beautiful towns in Greenland for its colourful houses and lovely setting. The biggest town in South Greenland, with some 3,000 inhabitants, Qaqortoq is easy to explore on foot, or you can join an excursion to get even more insight into local culture
Discover the beautiful region of Kvanefjord near Paamiut by sailing deep into the fjord on this exploration day. Your experienced Captain will take advantage of the conditions to identify landing sites for onshore walks, locate places to launch kayaks, scout ideal communities to visit, or find the best spots to scan for wildlife
Maniitsoq was founded in 1755 and its name means `The uneven place´ referring to the rocky hills and mountains shaping the layout of the town. It is also known as the `Venice of Greenland´ as it is situated in an archipelago, intersected by natural canals
Sisimiut is situated 40km north of the Arctic Circle and the name means `the people living in a place where there are fox dens´. This is the second largest town in Greenland, a modern, picturesque settlement that maintains ancient traditions
Ilulissat is set in the stunning scenery of the Ilulissat Icefjord World Heritage Site. At the mouth of the fjord you can see enormous icebergs that have run aground. These ice masses originate from the Jakobshavn Glacier, one of the fastest glaciers in the world
Visit a location near Saqqaq that was without an official name until 2013. The place is special to Hurtigruten, as it has been named after one of their former Expedition Team members. Land at the beach to explore this most northerly destination of your voyage, in breathtaking landscape and Arctic flora
Today’s exploration will take you to the meandering Evighed Fjord, surrounded by tall mountains (up to 2,000m in height)
Nuuk is situated at the mouth of one of the most spectacular fjord systems in the world. The capital city is where old and new traditions meet, from historic buildings in `Kolonihavnen´ to the modern Centre for Greenland Self Rule. Another feature is the National Museum - home to the famous mummies of Qilakitsoq
The abandoned town of Ivittuut is a stronghold for musk oxen. More than a thousand years ago, Vikings settled the area, but left no written records behind. Archaeologists believe this was the last Norse settlement in Greenland to be established, and the first to be abandoned
Prince Christian Sound separates mainland Greenland from Sammisoq and the Cape Farewell Archipelago. If conditions allow, we will sail through this narrow channel and enjoy the spectacular scenery here. If the channel is blocked with ice, we will sail around Nunap Isua (Cape Farewell)
Spend the days at sea recapping your experiences, having fun in the Science centre or just relaxing on deck, looking at the sea birds which follow the ship or maybe even spotting whales
Disembark and transfer to the airport for your return flight to London
