Explore the engaging wilderness of Greenland...

Imagine watching beams of the midnight sun playing through jagged shards of glacial ice and wonder at how nature could have created so many variations of the colour blue.

Sailing is a way of life for Greenlanders and there is no better way to see this striking and engaging territory than on Saga’s first Greenland cruise for a decade. This is the type of cruise for which Spirit of Discovery was built. Every cabin has a private balcony so whether you are sitting with a coffee watching the stunning scenery glide by, or you’re on a shore excursion, walking through rocky fields with a small group of your fellow passengers, there’s something for everyone. This itinerary has been planned in close co-operation with the local pilots and provides some unique opportunities to see the real Greenland and its people.

You can explore picture-book towns and cities, and investigate the region’s Viking heritage, all whilst seeing the natural wonders of the Arctic Circle and some breathtaking wildlife too. You will cruise along the picturesque passage of water known as the Prince Christian Sound where crystal clear waters reflect the rugged and imposing mountains looming above their shore. You can head off the tourist trail to experience the remote tranquility of the Eternity Fjord and contrast that to the hustle and bustle of ‘big city’ life with an overnight stay in the capital, Nuuk, home to more than 14,000 people.
