LEG 3: GREENLAND EXPLORER
Possibly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to explore one of the most imposing and majestic landscapes on the planet, inaccessible by land and only during a few weeks in the summer.
SKIRR Adventures offers a unique opportunity to explore and experience the beauty and challenge of sailing between Iceland and Greenland. Join a crew of experienced sailors on a voyage across the North Atlantic, exploring the rugged coastlines, majestic fjords, and remote islands of these two Nordic countries. Put your sailing skills into practice and develop your navigation skills, all whilst enjoying the wildlife, culture, and history of this region.
Depending on the weather and ice flow, we will take one of two options:
Head westward to Tasiilaq or Head northwards into the Arctic Circle and to Scoresby Sund
Icebergs are likely to be sighted and you will be on ice watch throughout the short hours of darkness and throughout the day, often pushing smaller bergs aside to make progress.
A word of warning – Greenland midges make the Scottish ones look amateurish. Fortunately they don’t like flying very far from the shore!
