Northeast Greenland & Jan Mayen
Some of the most beautiful landscapes on this planet
The northeast of Greenland is blessed with some of the most beautiful landscapes on the planet. As benefits the world’s largest island, northeast Greenland is home to some record-setting features. This part of the country is part of the Greenland National Park, at some 375,000 square miles, the world’s largest.
Another stunning feature here is Scoresby Sound (Scoresby Sund in Danish), one of the world’s largest and longest fjord systems. It’s so vast you could easily spend an entire cruise in the system and not explore it all. Rich in wildlife, this part of Greenland should let you experience great encounters with polar bears, walrus, musk ox, and reindeer, as well as a huge variety of birdlife.

Our expert guide says: “Greenland is one of my favorite places - it’s simply stunning. After Antarctica, it’s one of the world’s remotest areas; even the Inuit abandoned the area due to the difficulty of living here. A real highlight is seeing the ‘prehistoric’ musk ox - remarkable creatures!”
