The largest island in the world, stretching from the Arctic to the Atlantic Ocean, Greenland invites discovery. While communities existed on this vast island as early as 4,500 years ago, it was the Norsemen who settled Greenland’s southwest shores in the 10th-century, followed by the Inuit, who migrated from Alaska in the 13th-century, making up the majority of the island’s population today. Traditional ways of life can still be seen in hamlets and villages against a backdrop of stunning Arctic scenery.

On this voyage, the new-generation expedition cruise ship Vega, which accommodates only 152 guests, will navigate through Greenland’s magnificent fjords from which float incredible icebergs, and then cross the Davis Strait to land on Canada’s Arctic Baffin Island, continuing along the coast of Labrador to St. John’s, on the Island of Newfoundland. Throughout the voyage we will explore coastal villages and the countryside, discover UNESCO-listed World Heritage sites and Viking ruins, meet with local Inuit communities, and look for the wildlife.
