Day 1 (8th August 2026) - Arrival in Reykjavik Iceland

Arrive in Reykjavik and spend the next two nights here. On the coast of Iceland, Reykjavik is the country's capital and largest city. It is home to the National and Saga museums, tracing Iceland’s Viking history. The striking concrete Hallgrimskirkja church and rotating Perlan glass dome offer sweeping views of the sea and nearby hills.
 

Day 2 - Day at leisure in Reykjavik with optional excursions available

Reykjavik's coastline is characterised by peninsulas, coves, straits, and many small islands. Reykjavik is the world’s northernmost capital, and it also serves as a gateway to wilderness adventures beyond the city. Reykjavik’s creative culture includes a hip and internationally recognised music scene, great food, and a fantastic nightlife. You can also recharge in one of the many geothermal springs or luxurious indoor spas dotted around the city.
 

Day 3 - Fly to Constable Point to board your cruise boat

Today fly to Constable Point in Greenland, a small airfield on the west side of Hurry Inlet in Jameson Land. Join your cruise vessel and sail towards the village of Ittoqqortoormiit, probably the most isolated village in the world. The quaint little houses dot the rocky slopes of south Liverpool Land with magnificent views of Kap Brewster and the Volquart Boons Coast to the south.
 

Day 4 - Sail in Scoresby Sound (Sund) to Hekla Havn

Sail west between whole palaces of icebergs that gently drift under the influence of the currents in the Arctic waters in the mighty fjord of Scoresby Sound. Anchor at Hekla Havn, on Denmark Ø, the site of an old Inuit settlement and wintering camp of the first scientific expedition to Scoresbysund over one hundred years ago. A short evening walk exploring Hekla Havn, and the surrounding area.
 

Day 5 - Eclipse Day

Today the vessel will position itself in the best location for totality. The exact area chosen will depend on weather conditions on the day.
 

Day 6 - Sail to Føhnfjord, Rødefjord and Harefjord

Sail west through the narrow Føhnfjord with the majestic basalt mountains of Gåseland on the port side and 2000m high sheer granite cliffs of Milne Land. After being up close to the peculiar looking Red Island continue north through Rødefjord which is often filled with both larger icebergs and ice crust from icebergs that are breaking up. Arrive in Harefjord in the late afternoon where anchors are set for two nights.
 

Day 7 - Today spend time around Harefjord

Today is spent ashore in Harefjord scouting for muskoxen, snow hares, grouse, geese and other wildlife, which normally graze on the south facing slopes. Easy to moderate hiking with a lunch break at the top of a ridge with a breath-taking view over Harefjord where the glacier tongues descend into the sea. Those who prefer less exercise can stroll at the coast or stay on board enjoying the view. In the evening the crew will make a bonfire and prepare BBQ at the rocky beach.
 

Day 8 - Sail through Øfjord and onwards to Jyttes Havn Bjørneøe

Continues east through Øfjord, one of the most spectacular parts of the trip. Terrific mountain peaks and granite walls tower 200m up from the sea. Take a close look at some of the most amazing cliffs and a glacier front. The day ends by setting anchor in Jyttes Havn Bjørneøe.
 

Day 9 - Today spend time around Jytteshavn

For those that want to, today is spent hiking in and around Jytteshavn in Bear Islands as this is possibly one of the nicest and most picturesque anchorages in Scoresby Sound. There is a longer or shorter hike in Bear Islands, or on the northernmost tip of Milneland, a short zodiac ride away. Jytteshavn is the place to try your skills at sea swimming at 71°N and temperatures can be as surprising as 13°C in the summertime. In the evening we have a nice meal on board and then a cosy bonfire on the beach with storytelling or singing.
 

Day 10 - Today sail back to Constable Point

Sail though the channel between Bear Islands and Milne land with breath-taking views of the spectacular archipelago. As we sail it is likely that we will see some of the largest and most fascinating icebergs of the journey and have a fantastic opportunity to photograph these frozen giants. When you awake tomorrow morning, we will have anchored at the airstrip in Constable Point.
 

Day 11 - Today fly back to Reykjavik Iceland for your final night

Enjoy a good breakfast and board the aircraft in Constable Point for your return flight to Reykjavik for the final night of the tour
 

Day 12 (18th August 2026) - Join your return flight or perhaps extend your stay

Today is the last day of the tour. Join your return flight unless you have chosen to extend your stay.
