Enjoy amazing Arctic experiences in the Disco Bay area. You will have oceans of time to watch sculptured icebergs floating past. Greenland´s natural beauty, wildlife and spectacular landscapes are unmatched anywhere. Experience the genuine Greenlandic atmosphere in the towns and villages we visit along the way, and meet the welcoming people of this remote nation.
Like no other polar destination, Greenland offers close interaction and unique cultural experiences together with breathtaking nature. In the Disco Bay area, colourful villages cling to rough, rocky hills surrounding the inland ice. 80% of Greenland is covered by ice and we recommend you always have your camera handy as icebergs of every imaginable shape and size may appear at any time.
Enjoy exploring rarely visited settlements, lively towns and the abandoned solitude of Qullissat. Touch an iceberg with your bare hands and marvel at the power of nature in Ilulissat Icefjord. With daily landings and excursions including kayaking, hikes and other activities, you will discover the authentic Greenland and meet the people that call this wilderness home. At many of our stops, you are welcomed into open homes for a traditional “kaffemik”, providing a fascinating insight into local lives.
The Disco Bay area is also home to a large number of whales. Some of them live here, while others travel all the way from the Caribbean during summer. There is a very good chance to encounter Humpback, Fin and Greenland whales.
