Choosing to voyage by boat around the icy blue, dazzling gold and fiery red fjords of Greenland makes it possible to witness a plethora of remarkable regions that would otherwise not be seen without sailing. Uniquely memorable experiences include seeing musk ox, arctic hares and icebergs larger than football fields.
