Greenland is a land of contrasts and truly a world of its own. Colossal icebergs in fantastic shapes and the inland ice – a sheet of ice that is kilometres thick. But the ice is not all. Greenland is also about green mountains, long fjords, precipitous cliffs, hot springs, beautiful wild flowers and fresh air. Animals like whales, seals, reindeer, musk oxen and polar bears also thrive here.

Unique culture and breathtaking nature
A pristine wilderness of rugged mountains and awe-inspiring fjords, lush green valleys and incredible wildlife, where some of the most active glaciers on Earth and icebergs the size of cathedrals play out a tableau of breathtaking beauty across a timeless landscape. Blessed with a rich vein of natural and cultural diversity, this spectacular frozen world offers a fascinating insight into a history and culture that has thrived in these harsh realms for millennia.

Greenland’s inland ice cap is more than 14 times the size of England and along the coast the mighty iceberg formations are constantly changing.

Through generations the Inuits have formed their own distinctive way of life. Arts & crafts, traditional drum dance, kayak performances and colourful national costumes are all cultural expressions that are very much alive today.

Journey Onboard
Journeying aboard the superbly equipped MS Fram we explore the dramatic Arctic coastline, from the sparsely populated extremes of the northwest through to the lush rich valleys of its southern seas. We will visit traditional coastal communities like Sisimiut and Qaanaaq and sail through the spectacular waters of Disko Bay where gigantic sculptures of ice and snow reflect the dazzling rays of the Midnight Sun. We will discover abandoned whaling stations and ancient Inuit burial grounds, take in the captivating majesty of the Ilulissat Icefjord and search out the leviathans of the deep.

With on board lectures and an opportunity to explore the island’s remarkable landscapes on foot, by boat and even helicopter, these exhilarating voyages offer the chance for true adventure and exploration.

Climate & Temperatures
Although Greenland has an Arctic climate (which means the average temperature never exceeds 10°C in one month), the summers are relatively mild particularly in areas sheltered from wind. Inside the fjords the temperatures can reach up to 20°C.

The majority of Greenland lies above the Arctic Circle and therefore benefits from the Midnight Sun during the summer. This means 24 hours of sunlight to experience this unique landscape from the end of May to the end of July.
