Greenland may not be for sale, but new cruises from Goway will visit this, Europe’s largest island. Bookings are now being taken for the 2020 cruise season, and it is recommended to book early as space is limited.
New additions to Goway’s offerings invite nature lovers to visit one of the north’s great frontiers. The 12-day Iceland and the Natural Wonders of Greenland cruise sets sail from Reykjavik in neighboring Iceland. First stop is the island of Vestmannaeyjar before crossing the Denmark Strait to Prins Christian Sound, the first taste of Greenland’s awe-inspiring geography. The Fjords, colorful towns, bays, and glaciers that shape the island’s west coast, including its small but lively capital, Nuuk, are featured. Another highlight is Illulissat, famous for Disko Bay and the Sermeq Kujalleq glacier.
Passengers can also visit the island’s rarely explored east coast on Goway’s Three Arctic Islands cruise. This 15-day itinerary flies from Oslo, Norway to Spitsbergen, a Norwegian island territory where passengers board their cruise. They then sail down Greenland’s remote east coast to Scoresbysund. With few settlements here, wildlife thrives. Scoresbysund is home to some of the world’s most beautiful fjord systems, and Zodiac boats take passengers in for a closer look. The cruise finally drops anchor at the popular Icelandic cities of Akureyri and Reykjavik, where passengers disembark.
Traveling to one of the world’s most remote destinations, Greenland tours sell out quickly and are best booked well in advance. Goway’s Iceland and the Natural Wonders of Greenland departs August 9, 2020 from Reykjavik, then follows the reverse itinerary, departing August 20, 2020. Goway’s Three Arctic Islands cruise departs aboard the World Explorer on August 11, 2020 and September 6, 2020.
