Kangerlussuaq is a former U.S. Air Force base and Greenland’s primary flight hub. Here we will be transferred by Zodiac to the Ocean Endeavour.
With 190 kilometres of superb scenery, Kangerlussuaq Fjord (Søndre Strømfjord) is one of the longest fjords in the world. We begin our adventure by sailing down this dramatic fjord, crossing the Arctic Circle as we go and spending time on deck watching for aurora borealis.
Defined by jagged mountain peaks, sheer bird cliffs, cascading streams, and calving glaciers, Kangerlussuatsiaq lives up to its Danish name, Evighedsfjorden which means “the fjord of eternity.” Whether by ship, Zodiac cruise, or kayak, a visit to the face of the glacier is truly a sublime experience.
Nuuk, the capital of Greenland, bridges old and new. The old harbour region of town includes many buildings dating from the Danish colonial days, while contemporary Nuuk is known for great art, shopping, pubs, and cafes.
The Greenland National Museum is one of Nuuk’s many outstanding features; the world-famous Qilakitsoq mummies rest here.
Our onboard presentation series will continue as we steam across Davis Strait towards Canada. This is an excellent time to enjoy workshops, watch a documentary, and get out on deck with your binoculars to look for whales, seabirds, and other marine wildlife.
Some of Canada’s highest peaks east of the Rockies are found in Torngat Mountains National Park. Here, Intuit of Nunatsiavut will be our guides in their spiritual homeland. Polar bears, black bears, caribou, falcons, and eagles are among the species we hope to spot. We’ll also be on the lookout for marine mammals. We’ll spend our time hiking, searching for wildlife, visiting archaeological sites, and Zodiac cruising.
This haunting site preserves a Moravian Mission station dating from the 1830s. The mission was abandoned in 1959, forcing the relocation of Inuit who resided there. In 2005, the government of Newfoundland & Labrador issued an apology to people affected by the relocations.
Former Hebron residents and their kin continue to visit the site and to hunt and fish nearby.
The administrative capital of Nunatsiavut, Nain is the most northerly community in Labrador. We’ll visit Illusuak, the stunning new cultural centre, and the beautiful Moravian Church among other community highlights.
We always enjoy a warm cultural welcome here. Expect music, food, and handicrafts at this dynamic visit.
Along the Labrador coast we find coastal barrens, high subarctic tundra, high boreal forest, mid-boreal forest, and string bog. The area is dotted with islands and we'll select an expedition landing site based on the conditions of the day.
L,Anse aux Meadown, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the only authenticated Norse settlement in North America. The archaeological remains found here in 1960 date to approximately 1000 CE. Amazingly, the location was first established by a close reading of the Viking sagas.
Today, a superb interpretation centre and several reconstructed Norse-style sod buildings make L’Anse aux Meadows a must-see for any visitor to Newfoundland and Labrador.
The east coast of Newfoundland is known for the dozens of picturesque villages that dot its rocky shores. We’ll find harbour in one of these unique communities. We look forward to a characteristically warm Newfoundland welcome upon our arrival. Photographers will have their work cut out for them capturing the special charm of classic island communities and picturesque coastlines.
Sailing into the port of St. John’s has to be experienced to be believed. Watch for locals waving from Signal Hill as we take on our pilot and enter the world-famous Narrows. The colourful houses of the Battery are always a hit with shutterbugs!
Today we disembark the Ocean Endeavour. We will say our farewells in the cultural hotspot of North America's oldest city.
• Travel insurance can reimburse your for out of pocket expenses if your trip is canceled and some of it is non-refundable
• If your trip is interrupted – perhaps there is an emergency that requires you to return to your starting destination – expenses may be paid and arranged for you
• Medical coverage that we have at home, including provincial Canadian plans, typically pay only a portion of what medical care costs internationally.
We deal with Manulife Global Travel Insurance. We have carefully assessed travel insurance providers, and although these are not the cheapest policies – you do get what you pay for. Part of the reason that we have chosen them is their claims record, which was to pay out 96% of claims.
If you have insurance on your credit card, please note that very few have coverage that is applicable to fully cover your trip, there are often changes to coverage as you age, and often traveling companions are not covered.
Update - Please note: Policies are now available with Covid-19 coverage. As always details are important – ask us!
We know that travel is important; for many of our client’s travel is essential to their sense of well-being. Learning, relaxing, partaking in fulfilling experiences and filling up our memory bank is part of our identity.
Insurance can sometimes be the forgotten piece, but we can’t afford for it to be. Insurance needs to be integral to every travel plan because lets be real…risk is a part of life.
So, what is your risk tolerance? Are you ok to lose the investment in your travel plans? Are you prepared to be out of pocket for your medical expenses, which can mount easily into the hundreds of thousands, and even more?
This is a very personal, but important part of your vacation planning. Everyone is different in terms of what risks they are willing to take, and in terms of their personal health experiences and how that may affect coverage and pricing. Our ask – please put insurance into your planning, check the terms and conditions carefully, and give our insurance a chance. Please don’t travel without good insurance coverage!
All insurance policies have terms and conditions, please make sure you are aware and are comfortable with yours!
Buy wisely, have peace of mind, and travel well!
