Reykjavik – Tasiilaq (Greenland) – Reykjavik



Follow in the footsteps of both historic explorers who navigate sea ice in the North Atlantic and also modern-day scientists in the quest to limit changes to our vulnerable environment.

Tasiilaq is the largest town on the East Coast of Greenland, set inside a fjord that is often quite full of ice. This can provide the exciting experience of working through ice to reach the town which has facilities, a good shop and hotel. Getting alongside the pier is often impossible so your boat may have to anchor close by.

There is some good walking around the fjord but beware of polar bears.

On the way from Reykjavik, you are likely to encounter huge majestic icebergs, drifting slowly south. If you are very lucky you may even see one roll as its subsurface volume slowly melts and changes its centre of gravity.
