Five reasons to visit Northeast Greenland
There are many spectacular places around the globe, but some are simply jaw dropping out of the ordinary. Places where you are reminded of nature’s greatness and humankind’s smallness. Places that are life changing experiences. Northeast Greenland is such a place and we simply never tire of exploring this world’s largest national park. We have listed five reasons why.
Scorebysund is the largest fjord system in the world, stretching some 350 kilometres. The vast open spaces with snow covered mountain peaks and stranded icebergs mirrored in the water are not easily forgotten.
The mountains in Northeast Greenland are simply out of the ordinary. Imagine yourself on a comfortable expedition ship, cruising along a glassy fjord, standing on deck and gazing at 3 000 metre snow covered peaks. It is the kind of environment that makes you feel small yet big inside.
The icebergs are probably what make the greatest impression. Sometimes the size of a football field and higher than a block of flats! A Zodiac cruise among these giants in various shapes and a thousand shades of blue is hard to describe. You have to experience it!
When the sun slowly sinks into the horizon and the surrounding landscape is swept into mild nuances of orange, pink and purple, a beautiful sunset really lives up to its name.
No cars, no paved roads, no skyscrapers, no mobile coverage or cell phone signals. All you can hear is the ship engine, the ice in the fjords surrounding the ship and the birds circling above. In northeast Greenland you can actually listen to the silence.
Experience Greenland’s untamed wilderness with the elegant 12-passenger ship M/S Balto, designed to explore the most remote fjord systems, visit isolated Inuit settlements and take you to secret anchorages. Greenland’s spectacular coastline offers some of the most remarkable nature experiences. The Arctic landscape is dominated by ice-filled fjords, majestic peaks and vast tundra.
