Cruise the icy waters of Greenland and explore the rugged coast of Labrador and Newfounldand on this northern cruise.
This extraordinary sailing showcases staggering geographic diversity, from head of Sondre Stromfjord in Greenland all the way to St. John’s, NL. Covering over 2,200 nautical miles our program will encompass four distinct Canadian National Parks and is designed to for maximum absorption of the awe inspiring landscape and to foster a deep understanding of the cultural connections to the land.
We set out along the western coast of Greenland, calling at Nuuk, one of the world’s northernmost capital cities, and exploring one of the many fjords for which the area is famed. Across the Davis Strait in Canada, we visit the the stunning Torngat Mountains National Park. Here, at edge of the vast Canadian shield massive mountains tumble down to the Atlantic Ocean in one of the most dramatic seascapes in Canada. The Torngat Mountains National Park is the first and only National Park in Canada to be staffed completely by Inuit. Northern Labrador has to be seen to be believed—and we will do just that, via daily Zodiac expeditions to and organized hiking.
As we move further south, we'll visit the newly created Akami-Uapishkᵁ-KakKasuak-Mealy Mountains National Park Reserve, Canada's 46th National Park. Encompassing 10,700 square kilometers, the Park is the largest in Eastern Canada. We'll aim to stop at stupendous stretch of sandy beaches.
Crossing over to Newfoundland, we'll pay our respects to North America’s Viking visitors at L’Anse aux Meadows. While in Newfoundland we'll call in at a outport community and explore Terra Nova National Park before ending our voyage in historic St. John’s.
