Scoresby Sund Aurora Borealis

In depth exploration of Greenland’s East coast fjords| 11 Days

By early autumn the ice floes have usually dispersed giving access to the fjords of East Greenland, the world’s largest and deepest fjord system. The days are still long but temperatures can drop below freezing and the stark ice contrasts with the rich colours of the tundra. We visit a modern settlement and witness traditional Greenlandic culture.  You can hope to see huge icebergs, birds moving south on migration, musk oxen, seals and on clear nights the Aurora Borealis.
