Greenland's Far North: Ultimate Thule
This voyage includes the Greenland highlights of the popular Epic High Arctic voyage, and explores in more depth the Thule region, synonymous with “the true Greenland” for its untouched icescapes and sparsely populated Inuit communities.
In addition to the rich cultural aspects of this large island, as we sail north through Disko Bay and Melville Bay en route to Thule (or Qaanaaq), you’ll experience magnificent nature and great chances of seeing seals, walruses, humpback whale and narwhal await us. If we can go as far as Nares Strait, we might observe the most outstanding animals of them all, the polar bear.
