Sailing and exploring Scoresby Sound Fjord, Greenland

You will get to see icebergs and ice in shapes and sizes beyond imagination

Spend 8 days in Greenland, exploring the remote and magnificent nature of Scoresby Sound fjord which extends 350 km inland. Fly from Copenhagen to Reykjavík and on to Greenland and join the sturdy schooner Hildur for an amazing expedition.

Along the way we offer the opportunity for hiking and exploring the fjord's unique landscape. A unique chance to experience the high Arctic climate and the world's largest fjord with a sense of adventure, world class adventure, arctic wildlife, wind in the sails and good comfort!
The journey takes place in Scoresby Sound - with its more than 350 kilometers it is the world's longest fjord.

Hildur Greenland

Depart Reykjavík for a flight to Akureyri, North Iceland and then a plane to Constable Point Greenland, a small airfield on the west side of Hurry Inlet in Jameson Land. Embark and get an introduction and a safety briefing by the crew and then sail towards the village of Ittoqqortoormiit where the evening is spent with locals in perhaps the most isolated village of the world.

Ittoqqortoormiit was founded in the 1925s
by people from Ammassalik. It is the most northerly settlement on the east coast of Greenland. The 450 inhabitants make their living mostly by subsistence hunting of seals, Narwhale, Muskoxen and Polar Bear. The quaint little houses dot the rocky slopes of south Liverpool Land with magnificent views of Kap Brewster and the Volquart Boons Coast to the south.
