In the capital of Reykjavík explore the fabled Golden Circle—Thingvellir National Park; Gullfoss waterfall; and the Geysir Center. Your exploration of Greenland begins in Scoresbysund where, for two days, (weather permitting) search for the wildlife that lives among the glittering icebergs or on the wildflower-carpeted tundra. Sailing southward, explore coves and inlets of the pristine coast by Zodiac and visit millennia-old Norse sites and thriving local villages, including Nuuk, the world’s smallest capital. Prins Christian Sund is a photographer’s heaven with cliff-hugging frozen waterfalls and towering volcanoes. And, as you sail the length of Kangerlussuaq Fjord, witness the breathtaking spectacle of sheer vertical cliffs, massive glaciers, and elegant icebergs.
