At a Glance

Iceland and Greenland are home to some of the most spectacular natural landscapes in the world. Discover their beauty as you journey along Iceland’s stunning coastline to the island nation of Greenland onboard the Ocean Endeavor. In Iceland, take in endless acres of ice churning among the islands via Zodiac or kayak, explore Prince Christian Sound with its enormous crags that envelop you as you float past, and marvel at glittering glaciers spitting icebergs into the sea. Visit Nuuk, with its charming harbor reminiscent of Denmark, to explore Greenland’s cosmopolitan capital, from coffee shops to local markets.
Activity Level
Keep the Pace
I like to spend much of the day exploring. Whether walking through historic neighborhoods at a moderate pace or out and about on a coach, I prefer to keep my days full. Stairs don’t bother me, and I love to keep up with the group.

What You'll Learn

  • Surround yourself in the volcanic terrain of Iceland as you soak in the mineral-rich, geothermally-heated waters of the Blue Lagoon in Reykjavik, and visit the Viking World Museum.
  • Take in ice-capped mountains from the ship, and board Zodiacs to scan the wild coastline up-close for seals, whales and seabirds.
  • Visit the best-preserved Norse structure in Greenland, Hvalsey Church, a fjord-side stone ruin, and discover the story of its fascinating past.
  • Take in onboard presentations by special guest Margaret Atwood, author of “The Handmaid’s Tale” and “The Year of the Flood.”
