The Fjords of Greenland
A no-fly cruise from Dover
Sail from Dover aboard Fred. Olsen’s Boudicca, to discover the wonders of Greenland. Begin with two stops in Iceland: in Ísafjörður in the Westfjords; and the capital Reykjavik - your gateway to the world-famous wonders of the Golden Circle and the Blue Lagoon Spa. A day of magical scenic cruising will then provide the perfect start to your time in Greenland and then a stop at Qaqortoq will be your first chance to step foot on Greenlandic shores. From Narsarsuaq you can venture up Signal Hill for stunning views, then in Nanortalik, Greenland’s most southerly town, you’ll discover steep mountains, gorgeous fjords and pretty woodlands. Finally, delight in the majestic scenery of the Tasermiut Fjord as you depart Greenland, and stop off in Scotland on the way home, for easy access to the Highlands.

Highlights include the Blue Lagoon Spa, Thingvellir National Park, Gullfoss and Seljalandsfoss waterfalls and the Geysir hot spring area.
Day 6 - Ísafjörður
Enjoy a day in Ísafjörður, the largest town of the Westfjords with a fine natural harbour and a history as one of Iceland’s busiest and most important fishing and trading centres for over 250 years. Set against a backdrop of steep mountains and perched on a sand-spit that juts out into an inlet of one of the deepest fjords in northwest Iceland, it isn’t just one of Iceland’s most important towns; it is one of the prettiest too. Easily navigable on foot, it is worth visiting some of the cafes, bakeries and welcoming family-run restaurants that serve the finest locally-caught seafood all year round.

Day 8 - Cruising Prins Christian Sund and Torssukatak, Greenland
Framed by soaring snow-topped mountains, rocky cliffs and rolling hills, Prins Christian Sund offers stunning scenery as you make your way along its still, glass-like waters. Later we sail to Torssukatak, home to the famous Thumbnail cliff - said to be one of the highest sea cliffs on earth - and the ‘Baroness’ - an imposing, 600-metre high vertical cliff face.
Day 9 - Qaqortoq
We arrive in Qaqortoq, Southern Greenland’s largest town that has retained some of its original beautiful colonial buildings from its founding in 1775. The town is very proud of its ancient fountain, for many years it was the only one in Greenland, which has carvings of whales spouting water out of their blowholes, and the names of all of the town inhabitants in brass letters around its base. Ship to shore tender service.
Day 10 - Narsarsuaq
We spend the day docked in Narsarsuaq. Just outside the settlement is Signal Hill, offering panoramic views of the fjord and the icebergs which can occasionally be seen floating past and inland, is the stunning Narsarsuaq Glacier that grows out of the ice sheet of Greenland's interior, reached via the picturesque Flower Valley. Home to diverse wildlife, vast fjords and incredible glaciers, there is so much to see, do and discover here. Ship to shore tender service.
Day 11 - Nanortalik - Cruising Tasermiut Fjord
Sat on a small island at the end of a wonderful fjord and surrounded by vast snow-topped mountains Nanortalik is Greenland’s most southerly town - nicknamed ‘Place of Polar Bears’. Later, we sail in the stunning Tasermiut Fjord - a perfect example of the power of Mother Nature, with imposing cliffs, crystal-clear rivers, blue glaciers and majestic icebergs, it looks like a landscape only seen in fantasy movies. Ship to shore tender service.
