Information

During this 8-day trip, you’ll sail through the largest fjord in the world – Scoresbysund. This remote yet fantastic place is known for its raw and breathtaking landscape and spectacular wildlife. 

The tour starts from Reykjavik, Iceland, where you have a flight to Nerlerit Inaat airport (also known as Constable Point, Greenland). After your flight, you’ll board the yacht Vera where you’ll meet the crew and hear the safety instructions for a smooth and safe trip. The yacht will anchor next to Ittoqqortoormiit village – located in eastern Greenland, it’s known as a relatively remote settlement with only 350 inhabitants. Even though tourists rarely visit this place, here you’ll get a chance to learn more about the life and culture of the Inuit community. 

Your next day will start early, with a first stop at Vikingbukt, where polar bears are often spotted. While you sail further, your next resting place is on a magnificent Denmarks Ö (Denmarkøya) island. The yacht will be anchored at a popular Hekla Havn. This settlement was named after an expedition ship from 1891 used by Carl Ryder. In the upcoming days, you’ll spend your time sailing west and enjoying beautiful landscapes, looking at huge mountains, dramatic granite cliffs, and slowly drifting icebergs. 

Next on your agenda while sailing Føhnfjord is Milne Land and its spectacular 2000 meters-high granite cliffs. You’ll also get to pass through Red Island (Røde Ø) and see the shores of the red sandstone. Following next is Rødefjord, where you witness some more giant icebergs. Rypefjord is a fjord known for its hiking trails and where the chances to see herds of musk ox are pretty high. 

Your sailing trip will continue through Øfjord. Here you’ll be met with astonishing scenery and a 2000 meters-tall granite mountain Grundtvigskirken. After this, you’ll visit Bear Islands (Bjørne Øer), your anchorage spot is known to be the nicest one in Scoresbysund. 

The next day you’ll sail between the Bear Islands and the airstrip of Nerlerit Inaat Airport (Constable Point). Your trip will finish the following morning when you have a flight back to Reykjavik, Iceland.
