Greenland Odyssey with Aurora Expeditions 

Discover the vastness of Greenland, the largest island in the world, where many glaciers wind their way towards the coast and craggy peaks pierce azure skies. Explore vibrant tundra on foot or cruise through deep fjords while looking for aquatic life. See ringed seals resting on sea ice that has calved from Greenland's massive ice sheets, which are the largest in the Arctic, as you cruise around sounds full with seals. Sail Prince Christian Sound, which is surrounded by towering mountains, as it sculpts its way across south Greenland, where human settlement is indicated by verdant pastures and where Erik the Red's Viking remnants still survive at Hvalsey. We pass into west Greenland, which is the most developed part of the country and is home to Nuuk, the capital city, and the UNESCO-listed Ilulissat Icefjord. We weave between the fjords and channels.
