Adventure in Scoresbysund

This adventure starts with a flight from Akureyri, Iceland to Constable Point, Greenland; a small airfield west of Hurry Inlet in Jameson Land. You board the yacht Vera and get a safety briefing and introduction by the crew before sailing away.

The next day we sail around Scoresbysund. We go ashore at Hekla havn on Denmark Island, an old Inuit settlement and wintering camp of the first scientific expedition over a hundred years ago. In the following days we sail west between icebergs drifting by the currents, viewing massive mountains and granite cliffs. We sail Føhnfjord with its basalt mountains side and 2000 meters high granite cliffs of Milne Land. We will see the Red Island and go ashore at the red sandstone shore. We also sail Rødefjord filled with larger icebergs and arrive in Harefjord where hiking is highly recommended.  

Ittoqqortoormiit village.

The sailing continues eastwards through Øfjord. This is one of the most spectacular parts of the trip. The 2000 meters tall mountain with granite walls straight up from the sea is an unforgettable sight. We will anchor at Jyttes Havn on Bear Islands, one of the nicest anchorages in Scoresbysund. Sailing continues through the channel between the Bear Islands and Milne Land. The following day we will anchor near the airstrip in Constable Point and prepare for the airlift to Akureyri, Iceland.

The village Ittoqqortoormiit is one of the most isolated settlements in the western hemisphere. It is rarely visited by tourists, and home to 450 inhabitants. Here you will experience the culture and history of this remote Inuit community.
