Greenland Holidays

A mystifying location for any traveller. Our Arctic cruise is the choice for bright minds – offering glimpses of the area’s abundant wildlife in the day and stunning views of the Aurora Borealis at night.

A Greenland holiday is as spellbinding as it is diverse. Whether you’re travelling in search of solitude in Greenland’s magnificent landscapes, hoping for chance sightings of the local Arctic wildlife or are there to experience the ethereal flickering of the Northern Lights, a Greenland holiday offers magical experiences at every turn.

Greenland: What to Expect

Greenland is both the world’s largest island and its least densely populated country. For much of the year, it is ice-locked and little visited. Thus, in spite of its name – it was named to try and entice settlers – it is not green, at least not for most of the year. However, as the pack ice breaks up, late summer offers a brief opportunity for a Greenland holiday and a chance to access its dramatic mountain scenery and gigantic icebergs. A window in which to experience Greenland’s majestic scenery, iceberg-strewn waters and some of the world’s most spectacular landscapes.
