Greenland of Great Explorers

From Longyearbyen in Spitsbergen, L’Austral heads for Jan Mayen Island, located on the threshold of the Arctic and North Atlantic Oceans. This isolated and uninhabited volcanic island was a whale hunting center and is home to large bird colonies. Explore Scoresby Sund, the largest fjord in the world. In this pure and preserved world, see abundant wildlife in a landscape of tundra and ice, a real delight for the eyes and for photographers. Sail along the Blosseville Coast, named after the French captain who explored it in 1833. Here, the ice sheet meets the sea. During the last part of your cruise, sail up the west coast of Greenland. Admire the blue-tinged icebergs of Narsaq, then call in at Nuuk, the capital of Greenland, before heading for Kangerlussuaq, where this unforgettable cruise ends.
