Arrival and Embarkation in Reykjavik

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.

Denmark Strait

Discover Tasiilaq, East Greenland's gateway to adventure located on the south-eastern 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.

Tasiilaq

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.

Nansen Fjord

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

Greenland Sea

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.

Franz Joseph Fjord - Day 6 to 7

Spend four full days exploring the Scorsbysund area of the Northeast Greenland National Park. Weather and ice conditions permitting, this is a great opportunity to explore fjords that are deep in the heart of Greenland. Sail through and land in some of the world's most spectacular areas, with rarely visited glaciers, bays and inlets. Visit the tiny settlement of Ittoqqortoormiit for a look at how these most northerly people live.

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.

Scoresbysund - Day 8 to 11

Enjoy the lecture series while watching the seas for whales. Head towards Iceland and the steaming hot springs of Reykjavík. The view is often complemented by soaring fulmars, kittiwakes, gannets, guillemots, and razorbills.

Denmark Strait - Day 12 to 13

Shortly after breakfast, disembark at the Midbakki Pier in the Port of Reykjavik, a short walking distance from downtown.

SPEAK TO A SPECIALIST

Sustainability

Being environmentally accountable is a crucial part of our organisation. Chimu is currently striving towards using less paper, taking several initiatives to do so and tracking our progress along the way. Our goal: A paperless organisation. For this reason, all information given to you will be sent electronically. We encourage those who choose to travel with us to support our aspirations and actions and ask that you reconsider printing out documentation. To view these documents, you can download them to your iPad or portable computer before and during your trip.

Chimu is passionate and dedicated to sustainability measures and understands the crucial part sustainability plays within the tourism industry.

We use local guides and office staff to both maximise local employment opportunities and minimise carbon footprint. Local guides also ensure you benefit from the intimate knowledge, passion and culture of the country you’re visiting. Our guides are all highly qualified (most with university degrees) or equip with many years of experience and are paid above the standard wage. Whether it be our knowledgeable local guides, locally produced meals or the transport on tour, we do not use imported goods when local products are available. We aim to minimise our impact on the environment and give as much back as possible to the communities we work in.

While visiting the many national parks, heritage sites, museums and landmarks our travellers are encouraged to explore whilst remaining culturally aware and sensitive. We further encourage you to buy appropriate souvenirs and discourage the buying of anything wrongfully made or taken from the environment i.e. shells and endangered species products. Information on how you can be environmentally conscious, and travel responsibly will be made available in our Travellers Guides and provided during your travels by guides and staff.
