At a Glance

The hum of your Zodiac’s outboard motor stops, and you wait. There it is! A humpback whale pierces the water’s surface, pirouetting with a splash. To perhaps witness this rare spectacle is one reason you have voyaged north to the wild coastlines of Greenland and Newfoundland & Labrador. On this educational adventure, discover for yourself how these rugged lands where Vikings lived 600 years ago aren’t all together so different today. Learn in these Arctic enclaves how the friendly residents — like the reindeer and grey-leaf willows — not only endure this extreme outpost but embrace it.
Activity Level
Keep the Pace
Walking up to two miles per day over hilly, rocky, uneven terrain. Climbing stairs between decks on board as well as external gangway stairs to transfer between the ship and Zodiacs. Most embarkations and disembarkations will be via Zodiac, which require stepping up or down approximately 12 inches. Zodiac landings will generally entail disembarking onto rocky or gravelly beaches, and in windy weather can make for rather splashy rides.
