Our Greenland specialists, Sue and Alex have both personally visited Greenland and can use their detailed knowledge of the country to help plan the perfect trip for you.
Alex explored East Greenland by small expeditionary ship, spending extended time inside Scoresby Sund, the world’s largest fjord system, and was lucky enough to see the Northern Lights on two evenings. By contrast, Sue’s experience lies on the western side of the island, having combined the Canadian Arctic with western Greenland, which included the immense Disko Bay, responsible for a vast annual output of icebergs, including the iceberg which purportedly sunk The Titanic. The Steppes Voyages department have been offering expeditionary cruises of Greenland for over 5 years.
Greenland, the world’s largest island and the least densely populated country in the world, is ice-locked and rarely visited for much of the year. As the pack ice breaks up, late summer offers a brief opportunity to access its dramatic mountain scenery and gigantic icebergs.
Whether travelling in search of solitude in its magnificent landscapes, chanced sightings of the local Arctic wildlife or to experience the ethereal flickering of the Northern Lights, this vast wilderness on top of the world is as spellbinding as it is diverse.
