ITINERARY

Greenland’s Arctic Wilderness offers us some of the most spectacular and unspoilt scenery anywhere on earth. The largest island on the planet and its frozen coastline has witnessed the birth of some of nature’s most breath taking creations. Here the struggle for survival has engendered mankind with a healthy respect for his environment and we witness the quite unique interaction of man and nature as we sail through a landscape rich in culture, history and spectacular wildlife, into the northern lands of the midnight sun. Our Expedition Team includes Greenlanders, taking us on an authentic experience of the true Greenland.

Hurtigruten offers explorer cruises with a wide range of landing options. Every voyage is unique. Therefore the above mentioned route is only indicative. Based on the weather and ice conditions at hand, the Expedition Leader and Master will present the final itinerary after embarkation on the vessel.

Day 1, Reykjavik
Reykjavik is the world’s northernmost capital city and home to 172,000 people. In relative close surroundings of Reykjavik you may find glaciers, waterfalls, geysers and volcanoes. Reykjavik also has a selection of restaurants, museums and shops in the narrow small-town-like streets. We will depart pier in the evening hours, and strongly recommend that you acquaint yourself with this charming and vibrant town before departure.

Day 2, Grundarfjorður
Grundarfjörður is situated in the western area of Iceland in the region of Vesturland on the Snaefellsnes peninsula. Snaefellsnes is sometimes called “Iceland in a nutshell” because of its diversity of landscape with its different kind of lava and rock formations, glacier, volcanic activity, hot and cold springs as well as the richness of bird life and picturesque landscape. Snæfellsnes shelters tiny fishing harbours protected by dark cliffs of columnar basalt. All the colours of the northern summer seem to be caught between the ever undulating ocean and the pristine glacier slopes of Snæfellsjökull glacier. We offer a wide range of excursions in Grundarfjörður to enhance your Iceland experience.

Day 3, Denmark Strait (Sea day)
While crossing the Denmark Strait we follow in the wake of the great Norse settlers who left the shores of Iceland and Norway more than 900 years ago.

It is now time for lectures to prepare you for your time in Greenland. We will give you introduction briefings on Greenland and talk about how to explore the land with utmost respect for the vulnerable and exotic nature. In addition we offer a variety of lectures on topics like history, biology and geology during all the days we are at sea.

Day 4, Prins Christian Sund/Nunap Isua (Kap Farvel) (Sea day)
Greenland’s southern shores contain some of the most culturally and scenically diverse regions of the island. If conditions allow we will attempt to enter the narrow, often ice-choked 70-mile-long channel Prins Christian Sund that cross the southernmost point of Greenland and enjoy the breathtaking scenery as we navigate through. If the channel is blocked we will sail around Nunap Isua (Kap Farvel).

Day 5 – 7, South Greenland
The Viking Eirik Raude settled down here, and named his new land “Greenland”. And southernmost Greenland lives up to its name; here you find green fields dotted with white sheep, lush vegetable lands and busy farmsteads. This forms a colourful contrast to the icescapes at sea. Towns and settlements are located relatively close together in the southern fjords, which opens for many landing and activity options.

While in South Greenland we will attempt to land several places, some of them described below as examples. When conditions allow, excursions, kayaking, hikes or other activities on land and sea may be offered. Participation on any hike requires a good level of fitness, and that you are accustomed to hiking in uneven terrain.

Safety is always the first priority and the final sailing schedule will be decided by the ship’s Captain during the voyage. Below we list some of our possible landing sites, the final itinerary will be introduced during daily briefings.

Qaqortoq

Many consider Qaqortoq one of the most beautiful towns in Greenland due to the colourful houses. The original Qaqortoq, which means “The white”, was founded by the Norwegian trader Anders

Olsen in 1775, and today some 3 400 people live here.

Excursions offered may include an interesting visit to the only tannery in Greenland, a city walk with guide and a kaffemik to meet the locals. In Qaqortoq there is a pier for fishing vessels, if it is available we might go to pier.

Hvalsey

In Hvalsey you find some of the best preserved ruins from the Norse period; the former ‘Austurbygd’ which was left in 1408 approx 500 years after it was established. Here you find the remains of the church where the last known Viking wedding took place. Landing in Hvalsey is conducted by our Polarcirkel boats. Once ashore you may stroll around and explore ruins and surrounding area by yourself.

Igaliku

Igaliku was founded in 1783 by the trader Anders Olsen. Today it is home to 55 inhabitants. Well known are the ruins of Garðar, which once was the religious heart of Norse Greenland. When we make a landing a guided settlement walk is included in our program.

When conditions allow our Expedition Team may lead a hike 4 km along the Kongsveg over to Itilleq, a small settlement of less than 20 inhabitants. Here the MS Fram will pick up the hikers.

Qassiarsuk
Qassiarsuk, is a small community with a population of 56 people, known for the settlement of the Viking Eirik Raude, Brattahlid. He was banished from Iceland and escaped to the land he called Greenland. Eirik settled in Qassiarsuk because the area was according to him the richest and best site in Greenland when he arrived in 982. In Qassiarsuk, a boat trip and settlement walk are among the optional excursions we arrange for you.

Narsaq

Narsaq is located at the beautiful shores of the Tunulliarfik Fjord, and this area of South Greenland has been inhabited for thousands of years. Today around 1,600 people live in town. Narsaq means "plain" and the name refers to the large, green plain on which the town sits. The glaciers north of town ensure that there are icebergs around and the fjord is rich in seals, salmon, trout and minke whales. It is a great area for optional activities like kayaking and hiking or simply exploring the town with a town walk.

Day 8, Nuuk
The capital of Greenland houses about 16,000 people and holds the political and social centre of Greenland. Nuuk is the oldest town in Greenland founded by the Danish-Norwegian missionary Hans Egede in 1728. The name Nuuk means peninsula, an accurate description of the city’s location, on the tip of a large peninsula at the mouth of one of the largest and most spectacular fjord systems in the world.

Today the town is a place where old and new traditions meet, from picturesque old buildings in ”Kolonihaven” to the building of the Greenland Home Rule. Being the capital, Nuuk also houses a university, a teachers training college, churches and the Greenland National Museum where the mummies from Qilakilsoq are to be found.

MS Fram usually goes to pier in Nuuk. A shuttle bus brings those to town that would like to explore the capital by themselves. City tours, hikes and possibly a flight are amongst the optional excursions.

Day 9-11, North-West Greenland
North-West Greenland is the land of the midnight sun and the dog-sleds. The Disko Bay area offers amazing Arctic experiences with giant icebergs, seas and fjords that offer fantastic sailings with wildlife and spectacular nature. The colourful villages cling to rough, rocky hills at the foot of the mountains surrounding the inland ice. Whilst in North-West Greenland we will attempt to make daily landings for you to get a close and personal encounter with the authentic Greenland.
When conditions allow, excursions, kayaking, hikes or other activities on land and sea may be offered. Participation on any hike requires a good level of fitness, and that you are accustomed to hiking in uneven terrain.

Safety is always the first priority and the final sailing schedule will be decided by the ship’s Captain during the voyage. Below we list some of our possible landing sites, the final itinerary will be introduced during daily briefings.

Sisimiut

Sisimiut has a population of about 5,200 inhabitants and is the second largest town in Greenland. The main trade is fishing, and the town accommodates a large fleet of trawlers, a shipyard and a fish factory. Sisimiut is the southernmost of the towns on the western coast of Greenland where sleigh dogs can be found. It is set in rolling countryside and the town centre lies at the foot of a steep hill.

On board you will get an introduction presentation of Sisimiut, to prepare you discovering the town on your own with the help of a city map. The Sisimiut Museum is a culture-historical local museum and its speciality is the Greenland trade, industry and shipping. The museum is housed in beautiful old buildings originating from the colonial period, situated close to the harbour. A local handicraft workshop is located close to the pier. A visit there holds opportunities to watch the artists make jewellery and arts from bone, leather and metal. They also exhibit and sell their works, and purchase is by cash in DKK only. In Sisimiut we offer a variety of optional excursions like hikes of various levels and a boat tour. If you prefer to stay in town we also arrange sightseeing tour and a meal with Greenlandic specialities in a local restaurant.

Ilulissat

Icebergs are called Ilulissat in Greenlandic, and it comes as no surprise to anyone who has been here that this is the town’s name. This is the third largest town in Greenland with a population of about 5,000. Ilulissat is set in marvellous surroundings at Ilulissat Isfjord that in 2004 was inscribed to the UNESCO World Heritage List. Here enormous icebergs run aground at the mouth of the fjord, just outside of town. They originate from the Jakobshavn Glacier, one of the most productive glaciers in the northern hemisphere. Ilulissat is the metropolitan centre of the Disko Bay area and this aspect will be the theme of the town visit, together with the town's long-standing history. The most important trades in Ilulissat are fishing and tourism. The conditions determine whether MS Fram can use the PolarCirkel boats.

Ilulissat holds the busy life of a bigger town and also the house where Knud Rasmussen was born. In the museum you find the extensive collection from Knud Rasmussens expeditions and the history of Ilulissat. During our stay the Expedition Team will take you on a guided hike to the abandoned settlement of Sermermiut, which is situated 1.5 kilometres south of the town.

We also offer variety of optional shore excursions including hikes, town walk and a boat tour to the ice fjord. Based on availability of a plane or helicopter, a flight excursion might be offered last minute on board.

Itilleq
In the early afternoon we reach the small settlement Itilleq. Itilleq means “the hollow” and was first founded in 1847 on another island, but was later moved one kilometer east to its present location. The village is located about 50km south of Sisimiut in the head of the Itilleq Fjord. Around 130 people live here, who are mainly engaged in hunting and fishing. The island has no freshwater, and for this reason Itilleq makes use of a desalination facility. The church here has and interesting history: It was built in Thule (Umanak- North Greenland) in 1930 and was moved to Itilleq in 1963.

As its name suggests, the village is situated in a hollow, majestically surrounded by high mountains and glaciers. It can truthfully be called the Arctic Circle Village as the Arctic Circle is indeed found only 200 metres to the south. In Itilleq you will be invited for a “kaffemik” which means that you are welcome to visit a local home, talk with the host, and have a piece of cake and a coffee, but we request that you only stay 20 minutes. It is expected to remove your shoes before entering a home. Arts and crafts are for sale in the village (cash only). Please feel free to visit the library and the school.

Watch out for a soccer game- Itilleq vs. MS Fram! We need players- and supporters!

Day 12, Kangerlussuaq/Copenhagen
Kangerlussuaq is situated in the end of the Kangerlussuaq fjord. The settlement/airport lies just north of the Arctic Circle and is one of the best places to observe native wildlife.

In the early 1960’s musk oxen were introduced to Kangerlussuaq from North East Greenland, and today they count over 5,000. You will leave MS Fram in the morning, followed by a transfer from the docks to the airport in Kangerlussuaq.

You will leave the ship early in the morning. There is no harbour in Kangerlussuaq that can accommodate MS Fram and therefore debarking the ship requires the use of the ship's shuttle boats (PolarCirkel boats). Our Expedition Team will be at your disposal. It is advisable to bring rainproof jackets and trousers in your hand luggage to wear during the boat transfer.

Bus transfer to the airport of Kangerlussuaq, situated 12 kilometres from the dock.

The Air Greenland flight to Copenhagen leaves Kangerlussuaq in the morning and arrives approx. four hours later in Copenhagen in the late afternoon.
