Take a sailing expedition in Greenland, one of the world’s most remote destinations. Get to experience the changing landscape of the rugged terrain and Arctic icebergs aboard the Donna Wood, a hundred-year-old oak ship.
Day 1: ARRIVAL
Arrive at least one day earlier in Reykjavik for the early flight to Greenland the next day.
Day 2: Reykjavik - Constable Point
Depart early for Reykjavik to Constable Point, Greenland's airport. After landing, the group will board Donna Wood, the ship that will be our home for the week.
A full safety briefing and discussion about the upcoming journey will follow. Afterwards, we will then head to the village of Ittoqqoroormiit, one of the most remote settlements in the world.
Day 3: Ittoqqortoormiit - Scoresby Sound
Ittoqqortoormiit sits at the mouth of Scoresby Sound, and on day three we will begin our journey into Greenland's largest fjord.
From here we ill witness a changing landscape of mountains of ice and stone, along with floating formations of icebergs. These sights, combined with the midnight sun, will be a great opportunity for photography. The day will end with a stop in Hekla Havn, a peaceful, former Inuit settlement.
Day 4: Scoresby Sound
We will be spending the day exploring the imposing basalt mountains and steep cliffs on either side of the Fohnfjord. The mountains of Gaseland will rise above our port side, while the 2,000 metre-high cliffs of Milne Land will dominate the horizon to starboard.
Later on we will pass through Harefjord - an area packed with photographic sights all around, before sailing further through Rodefjord, where we'll encounter more iceberg formations.
Day 5: Harefjord
On day five, we will continue to explore Harefjord, wandering its shorelines in search of wildlife, subjects, and landscapes to capture with our cameras.
With any luck there will be plenty to choose from, with dramatic mountain ridges, glacial outlets, arctic foxes, stoats, mountain hares, and eagles all around. To end a memorable day, the group will enjoy a cosy bonfire and fill up on delicious flame-grilled treats.
Day 6: Harefjord - Øfjord - JyttesHavn
From Harefjord we will head towards Øfjord, where the group will see jagged, mountainous peaks rising from the water, and pass below granite cliffs towering over 200 metres above us. We will also drop anchor at Jyttes Havn at Bjorneoe, an area know for beautiful coast, lakes, and imposing cliffs.
Day 7: Iytteshavn
At Iytteshavn, we will wander around the Bear Islands, a natural reserve perfect for hiking, swimming, and wildlife photography. We will end the day with a meal together onboard the ship, and a warming bonfire on the beach.
Day 8: Arctic Riviera
The trip will end with a scenic cruise down what is known as the Arctic Riviera, the Tyhe Channel, located between Bear Islands and Milne Island.
This final leg of our adventure will provide amazing views of the huge icebergs that reside in these waters. The evening will slide by in a haze of ice and magical light, and we'll wake up in the morning arrived back at Constable Point.
Day 9: Constable Point - Reykjavik
On the morning of day nine, we will enjoy a hearty breakfast and take some time to look back upon all we have experienced and photographed together, We will then disembark our wonderful ship and catch a flight back to Reykjavik.
