CR6CPH: Greenland from the sea / 6 days
Departures from Copenhagen

Combining hotel stays in Ilulissat and Narsaq with a cruise along the West Coast of Greenland you will experience the Arctic nature and the Inuit culture. Sailing along the West Coast of Greenland is the perfect way to meet the Greenlanders. Along the way from Ilulissat in the Disko Bay to Narsaq in South Greenland you will have plenty of time to experience the beautiful and varied country.

Sailing plays a very important role in the Greenlandic infrastructure and a cruise along the West coast of Greenland is a fabulous way of experiencing this beautiful and varied country. Accommodation is in outside cabins with private facilities.


Famed for its giant icebergs and home to the World Heritage Site of Ilulissat Ice Fjord. This is the third largest town in Greenland and a a city where modern life meets traditional life style, all surrounded by amazing nature. Here, ice is the main theme; get close to the icy giants covered in the rays of the midnight sun on an amazing Ice Fjord cruise or join a full day boat excursion to the calving glacier; Eqip Sermia. You can also visit some of the remote settlements where fishing and hunting still is the only way to survive.

The Sea Voyage

Meet the local population travelling from town to town to visit relatives and friends along the coast. Enjoy the beautiful and varied landscape as we leave the rugged Arctic nature in the Disko Bay and reach green and fertile South Greenland. We sail in open waters and narrow straits, so close that you can almost touch the mountains. Along the way the ship calls at major towns and small settlements. Everywhere, the arrival of the ship makes people rush to the harbour to welcome friends and relatives. Life on board is relaxing; enjoy the view and make sure to keep your eyes open, as humpback whales are sometimes seen.


Narsaq is a small but beautiful village located in the amazing fjord systems of South Greenland.

Not far from the town you will be able to visit the Inland Ice Cap and several glaciers. They are all easily accessed by boat on one of our many excursions in the area.

In the outskirt of the village you will see Kvanefjeldet tower majestically - a mountain which is known to be teeming with different minerals, it may well play an important role in Greenland's future focus on the mining industry.
