Day 6 Cruising Prins Christiansund - Torssukatak
This evening we cruise through the still, glass-like waters of Prins Christiansund, a sound separating mainland Greenland from the island of Sangmissoq and other islands of the Cape Farewell Archipelago. We continue through the incredible Torssukatak Fjord, home to the famous Thumbnail cliff - said to be one of the highest sea cliffs on earth.
Day 7 Narsarsuaq - cruising Tunugdliarfik Fjord
Narsarsuaq is one of Greenland’s most popular tourist destinations, and is home to diverse wildlife, vast fjords and incredible glaciers, such as the stunning Narsarsuaq Glacier, an impressive frozen formation that grows out of Greenland’s sheet ice. We carry on to Tunugdliarfik Fjord, with its picturesque traditional settlements and snow-topped mountain peaks, and you may spot seals and whales on a scenic cruise through this incredible natural wonder.
Day 8 Qaqortoq - cruising Lichtenau Fjord
This morning we arrive in the town of Qaqortoq, founded by Norwegian traders in 1775. Explore the town centre, with its brightly painted houses, calling into the wooden Church of Our Saviour, dating from 1832 and the museum, dedicated to the history of the region’s early Norse inhabitants. We leave this afternoon and enjoy a scenic cruise through Lichtenau Fjord. On either side of the fjord lie two of Greenland’s oldest settlements: the historic ruins of Alluitsoq which was founded in 1774, and the tiny town of Ammassivik. Ship to shore tender service.
Day 9 Cruising Tasermiut Fjord - Nanortalik
We sail through the magnificent Tasermiut Fjord, a haven for all kinds of Arctic wildlife, before arriving in the town of Nanortalik, which sits on a small island at the end of a beautiful fjord, surrounded by glorious snow-covered mountains. Polar bears live and hunt on the sea ice close to the town and are often seen from the shores of Nanortalik, while seals and whales can also be spotted in the surrounding waters. Ship to shore tender service.
