We offer an eight days and seven nights adventure in the amazing Scoresbysund, surrounded by incredible arctic landscape and wildlife in one of the most remote places on earth. This is a unique opportunity to sail through untouched nature of unbelievable scenery and wildlife that leaves most people with unforgettable memories. We sail through unspoiled arctic landscape, when ashore we enjoy the landscape and the wildlife, where we occasionally spot polar bears, arctic fox and narwhales. Animals that are more common will appear; snow hares, seals and muskoxen.
This adventure starts with a flight from Reykjavík, 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. We anchor close to the village Ittoqqortoormiit, one of the most isolated settlements in the western hemisphere. It is rarely visited by tourists, and home to 350 inhabitants. Here you will experience the culture and history of this remote Inuit community.
The next day we have a long day of sailing, we depart early and head to Vikingbukt where we often see polar bears, we sometimes anchor in Vikingbukt. Next stop is the beautiful Island Denmarks Ö, we anchor Hekla havn, 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 Rypefjord where hiking is highly recommended where we often see herds of Muskox. The sailing continues eastwards through Øfjord. This is one of the most spectacular parts of the voyage. The 2000 meters tall mountain with granite walls straight up from the sea is an unforgettable sight. We will anchor at Bear Islands, one of the nicest anchorages in Scoresbysund. The following day is a long day of sailing between the Bear Islands and the airstrip in Constable Point and prepare for the airlift to Reykjavík, Iceland the morning after.
