Greenland Cruise Deals
Although the sea ice makes most northerly parts of Greenland largely inaccessible all year round, most of the inhabited areas of this huge Arctic island can be visited during the June-October peak season. Qaqortoq is a small town built in the far south of Greenland and it has preserved the traditional culture and the ancient Inuit skills of fishing, kayaking and hunting. Outside the town are the well preserved Norse ruins of Hvalsey which are over a thousand years old. The town of Ilulissat on Greenland’s west coast is another favourite port of call. You will also encounter the Arctic’s abundant wildlife, such as whales, seals, sea birds and reindeer. During the short Arctic summer, the sun never sets but simply grazes the horizon to then rise again. In the early autumn, the mysterious green glow of the northern lights will astound you.
