Silversea Expeditions - Arctic & Greenland

Encounter the majestic Arctic fjords, icebergs and crystal-clear glaciers of Greenland on two week journey following the route of the Norse with Silver Cloud

You will embark in Reykjavik before setting sail to Greenland's enchantingly rugged east coast with its towering mountains and ice-scraped valleys. On land, explore fascinating remains of manors, chapels and churches of former Norse settlements, and witness the mix of local and Danish culture in towns and villages today. Head to the UNESCO heritage Ilulissat’s Icefjord and understand the tremendous forces of nature that influence the life of the Greenlanders. Throughout the voyage, learn about the history, geology, wildlife and botany of this spectacular area from lecture presentations offered by an on board Expedition Team, with wildlife including Humpback whales, minke whales and orcas, and glorious land and sea birds on your watch list.
