Setting sail from Reykjavik
Capital of Iceland and gateway to this extraordinary volcanic island, modern Reykjavik is home to an impressive collection of interesting attractions and places of historic significance. Visit the impressive Hallgrímskirkja church, relax in a thermal pool, potter around the old harbour, and with 24 hour daylight in the summer months, you can play golf at midnight, or choose the perfect place to view the midnight sun such as the lighthouse at Grotta or on the waterfront by Sólfar - the Sun Voyager sculpture. If you're like us, you will find travelling out of Reykjavik by land or sea to be unforgettable.
Take a boat tour from Reykjavik’s Old Harbour to see the numerous whales of Faxaflói Bay: harbour porpoises, white-beaked dolphins, minke whales and humpback whales.
The uninhabited island of Skjoldungen is situated on Greenland’s rugged east coast, between the Northern and Southern Skjoldungenfjord. Here you’ll find a starkly beautiful landscape of snow-capped mountains, steep valley sides and icebergs in crystalline shades of white and blue.
Greenland: Prince Christian Sound
The spectacular Prince Christian Sound provides a protected passage for ships rounding the southern tip of Greenland, at times narrowing to just 1,500 feet across. Waterfalls cascade down the rugged mountain sides, and you can often spot whales and seals amongst the icebergs.
Canada: Saglek Fjord, Cape Chidley Islands (Nunavut)
Canada: Torngat Mountains National Park
Labrador’s remote and unspoilt Torngat Mountains National Park, only accessible by sea or plane, welcomes just a few hundred visitors each year. Managed by the local Inuit community, the park is home to wildlife including caribou, black bears, golden eagles and polar bears.
Canada: Hebron (Newfoundland and Labrador), Makkovik (Newfoundland and Labrador)
Canada: St Anthony
St Anthony sits right at the tip of Newfoundland’s Great Northern Peninsula, first settled by French and Basque fishermen in the 16th century. Off the coast you can see whales and icebergs that have drifted here from Greenland, while nearby attractions on land include the fascinating Norse site of L’Anse aux Meadows.
Arriving in St John's (Newfoundland)
Newfoundland's capital is a laid back city with an arty vibe, situated on a dramatic harbour. The hilly streets lined with colourful row houses make for a great photo opportunity, and the downtown area is full of history, as well as some excellent pubs and a thriving folk music scene.
