    Embark on a true polar adventure aboard the G Expedition on this 14-day journey through Greenland’s remote eastern coast. Explore deep into the fjords and glacial scenery of Northeast Greenland National Park, the world’s largest protected national park, keeping your eyes peeled for wildlife and the spectacular northern lights (if conditions are right, of course). With stops in storied local communities along the way, you’ll also learn about the indigenous history and culture from those who call this region their home.

    Day 1

    Reykjavík

    We highly recommend booking pre-tour accommodations in Reykjavik to fully explore the city.

    Day 2

    Denmark Strait

    On our first day at sea, get to know the ship and meet the Expedition team. Enjoy an opportunity to see whales and many different bird species, including soaring fulmars, kittiwakes, gannets guillemots and razorbills.

    Day 3

    Tasiilaq

    Discover Tasiilaq, East Greenland's gateway to adventure located on the southeastern coast of Ammassalik Island. With stunning views across the Tasiilaq Fjord's natural harbour, the mountains and the sea beckon travellers to explore. Attend a talk at a local museum and learn about the area's history and culture.

    Day 4

    Nansen Fjord

    Taking advantage of local ice and weather conditions, board a zodiac and explore the majestic Nansen Fjord, a broad inlet with rocky headlands distantly framed by the highest point in Greenland. With its primary tidewater glacier that spans a 14km width, copious quantities of icebergs have been known to disgorge into the fjord. Explore one of those rare places on Earth blessed with both awe-inspiring landscape and a compelling natural history.

    Day 5

    Greenland Sea

    Enjoy a day of Arctic lectures, relaxing on board the ship, and an opportunity to see whales as we cruise further north.

    Day 6

    Kaiser Frans Joseph Fjord

    Take two days to explore the stunning Kaiser Franz Joseph Fjord, located in the heart of the Northeast Greenland National Park — the largest national park in the world (and on the world's largest island). See towering icebergs up close as the ship navigates the fjords. Weather and ice conditions permitting, enjoy great opportunities for zodiac cruising and landings in the area.

    Day 8

    Scoresbysund

    Northeast Greenland National Park is nearly impossible to reach except on expedition ships. Spectacular geology combined with glacial features create steep mountains raising directly from the sea. Look out for picturesque scenery, wildlife and other interesting landing sites in this unspoiled wilderness. Depending on ice, spend these days exploring the massive fjord system of Northeast Greenland National Park, which includes portions of Scoresbysund. These intricate fjord systems are everything from wide and unimaginable to narrow and steeply spectacular with some of the best mountain scenery in the world. Walking over lush stands of colourful autumn tundra may lead to opportunities to see musk oxen grazing nearby.
