Greenland

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. You can enjoy Zodiac cruises amongst icebergs in all shapes and sizes, admire glistering glaciers, take a dip in a hot spring and head out on refreshing hikes. The wilderness is also home to a rich and diverse wildlife, including whales, Arctic foxes, seals, polar bears and the iconic musk ox.
