    The stretch of coast between Angmagssalik and Scoresby Sound is considered one of the most difficult in Greenland. In much of this area the mountains rise almost vertically from the sea to form a narrow bulwark, with rifts through which active glaciers discharge great quantities of ice. Here you find the highest mountains in the Arctic and some of the longest and most ice-filled fjords – here the polar bear and narwal rule unchallenged. This is a place that only a few hardy adventurers in the annals of Arctic exploration have ever dared to challenge.

    Our crew has been exploring this area for many years and we are doing one exclusive expedition to this spectacular place – only nine seats will be available. We will sail from Isafjordur in north west Iceland on our sturdy expedition yacht AURORA, cross the Denmark Strait and make landfall on the southern edge of the Blosseville coast. From here we will make our way south to the Angmagssalik area and visit many beautiful locations on the way such as Nansen fjord, Kangerdlugssuaq fjord, Nigertuluk and Kangertigtivatsiaq fjords. Each night we will stay in a safe anchorage and there will always be oportunities to explore the areas by foot or by kayak. The trip will end in the village of Kulusuk where our guests will catch their flight back to Reykjavik. This is an expedition suitable for anyone looking for a true adventure off the beaten path.

    • Aurora

      is a former racing yacht that has been around the world four times. Under its previous name, Antiope, it was commanded a number of times by Sir Robin Knox-Johnson, the founder of Clipper Adventures and the first man to singlehandedly sail around the world non-stop.

      Originally built for fifteen crewmembers, she has been thoughtfully outfitted for sailing excursions that comfortably accommodate eight guests and two crew members (ten single berths) with spacious communal areas and a galley.

      The boat offers central heating, hot and cold water, two heads (toilets), one shower, and 220V electricity capable of charging batteries and other electronic devices.
