Highlights


• Travel between Greenland and northern Canada

• Discover a world of bizarre beauty

• Follow in the footsteps of great pioneers into the white wilderness of the Arctic


Kangerlussuaq/Greenland, departure 21.00 hrs
Continue the story of exploration in the far north as you set out on a breathtaking adventure to the polar expanses on board the HANSEATIC inspiration. In Greenland, Uummannaq will greet you with colourful houses and the striking backdrop of a heart-shaped mountain shimmering red.
Experience Inuit culture and history in Pond Inlet on Baffin Island. Awaiting you is a warm welcome from the inhabitants of this traditional settlement surrounded by snow-covered mountain ranges on Eclipse Sound. Robust Zodiacs are the only way to explore this region, including Devon Island, the world’s largest uninhabited island. Gleaming blue ice is reflected in the crystal-clear water, and with luck you will spot some mighty musk oxen and cute lemmings. The HANSEATIC inspiration continues further north, reaching Ellesmere Island and its abandoned outpost of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. In the clear polar air, cruising through Jones Sound presents unique Arctic panoramas. Finally, immerse yourself in the seldom-visited waters of Smith Sound.
A reverent silence hangs in the air, broken only by an isolated crack of glacier ice or the call of a kittiwake. Your expedition ship reaches red-rocked Pim Island, which is highly popular with polar bears and Arctic fox
Greenland’s Cape Constitution, where Elisha Kane proudly raised the American flag in 1854, is also of historical significance. Siorapaluk, Greenland’s most northerly settlement, is a remote place on the strait of Smith Sound. The approximately 80 inhabitants earn their living from hunting and fishing. Further south, the colourful houses of the young settlement of Qaanaaq form a beautiful chessboard pattern. Named Old Thule before the Cold War, it was moved to make way for a military base and given a new name. Pioneers such as Robert Edwin Peary set out from Old Thule for the North Pole. Cape York, where you will board Zodiacs to explore the icy landscape, still has a memorial to the great American explorer.
Passing through the Vaigat Strait, you will head for Ilulissat, closing in on another highlight of your expedition: even well-travelled visitors are left speechless by the imposing ice fjord. Experience gigantic ice formations in the famous Disko Bay: massive blocks of ice which have broken off the glacier drift in the sea – one of the most impressive spectacles in Greenland. A magical world of blue and white for you to discover on the HANSEATIC inspiration and in the Zodiacs, depending on the ice. In the old town of Sisimiut, historic houses cling to steep cliffs, while a museum and two churches reflect the city’s exciting history as a missionary station and trading post. Together with the experts, you can hike to Tele Island.
Arrival 6.00 hrs Charter flight from Kangerlussuaq to Germany* Your expedition days in the Canadian Arctic then end back in Kangerlussuaq – but your memories of this time will stay with you forever.
A change in itinerary may become necessary on this expedition to the Arctic. The captain will decide on the best-possible alternative depending on weather and ice conditions and official approval.
