Aug 19 – Aug 31, 2006 – PS56-15

Few have experienced this remote region of the Artic – one of the last pristine environments of the world. We voyage here in summer when the ice has receded enough to let us get near some of the special areas. With the chance to see Polar Bears on the drift ice and seabirds including possibly the rare Ivory Gull, the extreme north is a special place. As we travel south, we enter a landscape of dramatic fjords, endless tundra, calving icebergs and possible sightings of Arctic wildlife including Musk Oxen, Arctic Hare, wolves, caribou and Lemmings. Most of this east coast is now protected and this opportunity to visit is a rare glimpse of a magical unspoiled wilderness.


Board the M/V Polar Star in the afternoon to embark on a journey to one of the most beautiful and isolated regions of the world.



We spend these days crossing the sea, relaxing, attending lectures and watching for whales and a variety of seabirds. Late afternoon on day 3, we approach northeast Greenland where we may encounter pack ice which increases the possibility of seeing seals, Polar Bears and more seabirds including the rare Ivory Gull.


Being so far north, it is weather and ice conditions that will dictate our exact itinerary. Today we will know whether we can get as far north as Danmarkhavn or whether our coastal cruise will need to start farther south.



 During these days we plan to explore places of interest relating to exploration and settlement as well as experience the vast rugged landscape. It is a wild, remote and barren region that supports some of nature’s most hardy wildlife including Polar Bears, Musk Oxen, Arctic Hares, Lemmings, wolves, caribou, seals, walruses, and whales. Some of the sites that may be visited include: Shannon Island, Hansa Bugt, Daneborg at Wollaston Forland, Deadmansbay at Clavering Island, Godthaap Gulf, Wordies Glacier, Myggebugten, Blomsterbukten, Isfjord and King Oscar’s Fjord. We will see remains of explorers’ huts, endless tundra, dramatic fjords, calving icebergs, mountains and glaciers.



Today we reach Scoresby Sund Fjord, the largest fjord in the world, where we will visit the community of Ittoqqortoormiit (formerly Scoresbysund). In 1925 the ship Gustav Holm brought 70 Inuit here and their descendents live in this district today. There is a monument to the French explorer Charcot, of both Arctic and Antarctic fame.

Day 11 At Sea

Leaving the ice-clad mountains of Greenland behind us, we head for Iceland attending lectures and watching for whales and seabirds. We arrive at Reykjavik in time for an evening ashore.


Disembark after breakfast to explore Iceland on your own or begin your homeward journey.
