Trips and Tours to Greenland

Experience the icy wilderness of Greenland with our range of tours

Wedged between North America and Europe, the remote frontier of Greenland is a once-in-a-lifetime travel destination. Mostly uninhabited and practically untouched by mankind, it's an island of majestic landscapes forged by ice with rugged mountains and spectacular glaciers, which in turn give rise to remarkable fjords and jaw-dropping icebergs. Despite the remoteness and lack of commercialism, there's a veritable smorgasbord of activities and unique experiences to enjoy by sea, land, and air. Here you can take a cruise to the ice fjords under the midnight sun, head out into the countryside in search of the Northern Lights and take to the skies for a scenic flight to remember.

Unique experiences
Have a drink "on the rocks"

On our summer tours to Greenland we include a midnight cruise to the World Heritage listed icefjords. Travelling by boat you'll get up close to the icebergs, so close in fact that your expert guide will be able to chisel chunks of freshwater ice and deposit these 'ice cubes' straight into a drink that will be specially prepared for you on board. It's the ultimate way to enjoy a tipple "on the rocks"!

Frequently asked questions about our expedition cruises to Greenland

When is the best time to visit Greenland?

We only operate our Greenland tours in the summer months, from July - September. This is because, for most of the year, the waters around the island are locked in ice, and inaccessible for our expedition ships. Temperatures are also at their highest at this time of year, although they rarely get to be more than a few degrees above freezing.

What should I pack for Greenland?

It goes without saying that warm clothing, boots, and waterproofs are essential. But it's easy to forget items such as sunglasses and sunscreen, which are important to remember.

The key to navigating Greenland is lots of layers of clothing. Whilst it is freezing outside when you are exploring the Arctic, things will be warmer aboard the ship, so you need to be able to add and remove layers easily.

Another piece of advice is to bring moisturizer. The windy conditions of Greenland are more inhospitable than anything you've experienced before, and your skin will thank you. Earplugs are a good idea too, especially if you are a poor sleeper. And don't forget your binoculars, you won't want to miss spotting whales on the horizon!

Will you always stick to the itinerary?

Whilst we and our partners will always endeavor to stick to the itinerary as described on our website, this is not always possible depending on weather conditions.

Adverse weather or other issues mean that we must reserve the right to alter itineraries on the ground where necessary for safety reasons. However, your expedition team will always go out of their way to make sure you have the best experience possible.

Where can I find out more about the ship?

Our Greenland tours use the Ocean Albatros expedition ship. There is information regarding the ship on our tour pages, and on the site of our partner on the ground.

Will I have phone signal and Wi-Fi?

Greenland is very remote, and whilst there is Wi-Fi in many hotels, bars, restaurants and destinations on land which you can make use of, there is no Wi-Fi on the Ocean Albatros, though a 60-minute internet package to use onboard computers can be used.

Similarly, mobile phone reception will be mostly unavailable, and it is best to simply focus on enjoying your experience.
