Board sturdy Icelandic oak fishing schooner the Hildur for an expedition to explore the world’s largest fjord, Greenland’s magnificent Scoresby Sound. Traditionally built in Akureyri, Iceland, this comfortable vessel has been especially converted into an exclusive passenger ship, available for private charter.
This exhilarating expedition will bring you through icy Arctic waters filled with gigantic palaces of icebergs to arrive at remote and enchanting Greenland villages such as Ittoqqortoormiit and Hekla Havn.
Along the way, marvel at some of the world’s most spectacular scenery and tranquil surroundings with huge fjords, majestic basalt mountains, high sheer granite cliffs and the arresting ‘red sandstone shore’.
The boat’s deck is the perfect destination from which to spot whales, while venturing ashore you’ll find muskoxen, snow hares, grouse and geese. Terrific mountain peaks make for great hiking while sea swimming is possible in the summer.
