DAY 1 Kangerlussuaq

You arrive in Kangerlussuaq in the morning. Before boarding MS Fram we spend the day exploring Kangerlussuaq and its surroundings. First on the agenda is a trip to the Greenland Ice Cap. Enjoy a ride through a wide variety of beautiful natural scenery before enjoying an hour discovering the area around the Ice Cap. After arriving back in Kangerlussuaq we enjoy a light lunch before embarking MS Fram and setting a course for Disko Bay and our Greenland adventure.
Note: Voyages in 2015 begin with an overnight stay in Copenhagen before transferring to Kangerlussuaq the next day.

DAY 2 Exploring Northwest Greenland

Sisimiut is the southernmost of the towns on the western coast of Greenland. Here we offer a variety of optional shore excursions including hikes, boat trips and sightseeing, as well as the chance to shop for local handicrafts and enjoy a meal with Greenlandic specialities in a local restaurant.

Qeqertarsuaq is the only town situated on the old volcanic island of Disko. The area offers amazing Arctic experiences with giant icebergs, picturesque seascapes, fjords and wildlife. Our Expedition Team will take you on a guided walk, or you can join the optional excursions like a town walk, kayaking or an ice cruising boat tour.

If you like archaeology and history should definitely pay a visit to the local museum inQasigiannguit. Alternatively, you can stroll around the settlement on your own, or participate in our excursion, which includes a settlement walk, entrance to museums and a visit to the church for a recital by the local choir.

The town of Uummannaq is situated in scenic surroundings at the foot of a heart-shaped mountain. During our stay here, the Expedition Team will lead you on a hike in the shadow of this majestic peak. Our optional excursions include meeting the locals or taking a Polarcirkel boat-excursion to a landing at Qilakitsoq where the mummies from the Thule era were found.

In Ukkusissat the locals await us at the pier when we arrive, and entertain us with song and dance, before proudly escorting us to their village. Take a stroll around on your own, or drop by the community house where they offer coffee, homemade cakes and local souvenirs.
There are only 90 people living in Illorsuit, a traditional hunting and fishing community. You may find that many houses dry whale meat and fish on the front porch- right next to the laundry! It is a place rarely visited by tourists. We will go ashore using Polarcirkel boats and introduce you to the locals.

In Upernavik at N72° 47 and W 56° 10 you will find the world's northernmost open-air museum.

Qullissat is an abandoned mining settlement on Disko Island. Sometimes, hunters still use the houses of Qullissat while others use them as holiday homes. It is very nice to walk through the settlement on your own. We will set our Polarcirkel boats on the water and make a landing.

The glacier Eqip Sermia calves icebergs into the open ocean. To day you will have an outstanding opportunity to experience a glacier and sense the true power of nature. We will use the ship's Polarcirkels to go ashore in this beautiful area. If you feel like being more active, you may take a small hike on your own in the area.

Ilulissat means "iceberg" in Greenlandic. This is the third largest town in Greenland, and is set in marvellous surroundings at Ilulissat Icefjord. The area was inscribed to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2004. 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. During our stay the Expedition Team will take you on a guided hike to the abandoned settlement of Sermermiut. We also offer variety of optional shore excursions including hikes, town walks and a boat tour to the Icefjord. Subject to availability on the day, a plane or helicopter excursion might be offered last minute on board.

Itilleq means “the hollow”, and as the name suggests the village is situated in a hollow, majestically surrounded by high mountains and glaciers. The Arctic Circle is 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 for coffee, cake and a good chinwag with the owner. We might set up an optional kayak excursion for those interested in exploring the Arctic Circle area from the shore, and there will be a football game where the people from Itilleq play against guests and staff from MS Fram!

A land of extremes, 85% of Greenland is covered with ice, some of it up to three kilometres thick, representing 10% of the planets natural fresh-water reserves. But far from being a frozen wasteland the island actually contains a staggeringly rich vein of natural and cultural diversity, offering visitors some of the most remarkable wildlife experiences on Earth and a fascinating insight into a history and culture that has survived and thrived in these harsh realms for millennia.

Greenland tours of Disko Bay offer views of enormous icebergs, beautiful fjords, and majestic mountains. Expeditions allow you to go on short excursions to actually touch a glacier. Dog sledding excursions on the Lygnmark Glacier is an optional expedition.

Journeying aboard the superbly equipped MS Fram, our custom-made vessel designed specifically for exploration in these northern waters, we explore the dramatic Arctic coastline, from the sparsely populated extremes of the northwest, through to the lush rich valleys of its southern seas. This is nature at her most inspired, where towering ice sculptures share the seas with majestic humpbacks and narwhales, where mighty glaciers roll down to the very edge of the icy depths and where the skies are filled with the sights and sounds of thousands of seabirds. Stopping at the coastal communities along the way we follow in the footsteps of earlier pioneers, visiting abandoned whaling stations and ancient Inuit burial grounds, remote settlements and Viking longhouses. With opportunities to venture farther afield and explore the flora and fauna of the island's remarkable landscape by foot, dog sled and even helicopter, these exhilarating voyages to the northern extremes of our planet offer the chance for adventure and exploration in the time honoured fashion of the explorers of old.

Local Knowledge
Guest lecturers and a wide ranging programme of discussions on all aspects of Greenland's history, flora and fauna will enhance your time on board and our extensive menus are inspired by Arctic food, utilising a range of locally produced ingredients.

Climate & Temperatures
Although Greenland has an Arctic climate (which means the average temperature never exceeds 10ºC in one month), the summers are relatively mild particularly in areas sheltered from wind. Inside the fjords the temperatures can reach up to 20ºC.

Midnight Sun
The majority of Greenland lies above the Arctic Circle and therefore benefits from the Midnight Sun during the summer. This means 24 hours of sunlight to experience this unique landscape from the end of May to the end of July.


Our ships have something special to offer- from Old World elegance to stylish contemporary art. For example, the MS Fram has a Nordic feel with its extensive use of wool, leather, and oak.

As a result of the valuable efforts of the Turkish Ministry Of Tourism, the travel insurance is now obligatory for all travelers by law. In addition, we kindly would like to aware you that most of the countries and their related consulates require a health insurance with a minimum coverage limit of Euro 30.000 to confirm your visa.

During your travel, you may have some health problems and high expenditures accordingly. Lost baggage, robbery, lost ticket, law issues, etc. are also within the possibilities of a travel. We highly reccomend a travel insurance to financially protect yourself abroad.


If you do already have a health insurance please double check if it is valid in and out of Turkey and if it covers also lost baggage, robbery, lost ticket, law issues, etc. Please be aware that some insurances are very cheap and do not cover most of the above mentioned topics. Please do not forget that the coverage limitations of an insurance is the most important thing to know.


Most of our products are valuable, non-refundable, having an advance purchase period of 2 or 3 months. After making the payment, it is not possible to get a refund and if you need to cancel your trip under specific circumstances, you should have a cancellation insurance to protect your financial loss.
