A wonderland of icy blue glaciers, vast ice fields and stunning deep blue fjords, Greenland is the largest non-continental island in the world, with the smallest population. This is a destination where the most intrepid adventurer charterers are richly rewarded.
This is an example of an eight day yacht charter itinerary along Greenland's coast. Itineraries are created individually for every client based around personal preferences and how you want to spend your time onboard the vessel.
Meet your yacht’s captain at Nuuk Airport for a van transfer to the charter yacht, which will be waiting just outside the Nuup Kangerlua Fjord, the longest fjord on Greenland’s Labrador Sea coast and one of the longest in the inhabited part of the country. Settle in onboard, explore the yacht and relax with welcome drinks and dinner.
Nuup Kangerlua Fjord
The World’s Most Northern Capital
Spend your first full day onboard exploring the capital of Greenland, the world’s northernmost capital city situated at 64°10’ N. Impressively situated at the end of the Nuup Kangerlua Fjord, Nuuk offers experiences not found anywhere else in Greenland, including the Greenland National Museum, Greenland’s largest microbrewery and the Nuuk Art Museum, a fascinating insight into Inuit culture.
Venice of Greenland
Located in an archipelago among a maze of small, naturally formed canals, Maniitsoq is known by locals as the Venice of Greenland. Go angling with a local guide in the two rivers to the south, which are teeming with Arctic charr. Head out on the tender to spot pods of visiting humpback whales.
An hour’s cruise from Maniitsoq, Kangaamiut is an island off the coast of Davis Strait. Perched between the Kangerlussuatsiaq and Kangaamiut Fjords, this is an ideal stop for heliskiing, with a huge range of glacial runs descending to stunning fjords. Jump into the chopper and enjoy the once-in-a-lifetime experience of descending down deserted white slopes 2000m to the edge of the inky sea.
Kayaking in Aasiaat, at the mouth of Disko Bay, is an experience like no other. Join a local guide for a personalised trip. During the summer months, spot at the mouth of Disko Bay, spot humpback and minke whales, plus bowheads and even blue whales playing in these waters. From May to July, this is an excellent spot to experience the surreal midnight sun from the decks of your yacht.
