Greenland Explorer: Sail & Soar

DEPARTING FROM:Reykjavi­kFINAL DESTINATION:Reykjavi­k

DURATION:11 Days/ 10 NightsREGION:ArcticSHIP:Ultramarine

This 11-day Greenland Explorer voyage is designed for travellers seeking to explore the majestic fjords, glaciers and mountains of South Greenland. This itinerary offers guests one–of–a–kind excursions exclusive to Quark Expeditions - some of them only made possible by their newest ship, the technologically–advanced Ultramarine, which is equipped with two twin–engine helicopters. On this journey, you can be as active as you like, or you can opt for more relaxing, immersive experiences.

Developed in partnership with local communities—a first of its kind in expedition travel - this itinerary offers unprecedented opportunities to explore the majesty of South Greenland’s diverse fjordlands. Ultramarine’s two helicopters will take you to areas in South Greenland that others can’t reach, especially for off–ship excursions. 

Some of these, such as our Exclusive Heli Landings and the Greenland Ice Sheet Experience, are included for all guests, who can also enjoy hikes, community visits and Zodiac cruises.

This voyage - accessible to guests of all fitness levels - offers something for everyone, whether you’re interested in soaking up the serene mountain views, sailing through the icebergs on a Zodiac cruise, or trying optional activities such as heli-hiking or camping in style on the shores of Tasermiut Fjord with local hosts.
