Sail above the Arctic Circle around Greenland, the world's largest island and perhaps its best-kept secret, stepping ashore in remote, sparsely inhabited villages and ports inaccessible to large cruise ships. On this eight-night cruise aboard the newly renovated Exploris One (formerly Silversea Cruise Line's Silver Explorer), travel in the company of expert naturalist guides who will share their insights on local culture, wildlife, and the impact of climate change on Greenland's epic glaciers, which you see up close via enlightening cruises aboard Zodiacs. In a landscape dotted with vividly colorful, colonial-style houses and centuries-old Danish churches, meet local residents and experts to experience local Inuit traditions. First, stay overnight for a brief exploration of Reykjavík, Iceland, followed by a privately chartered flight to Greenland. Bask in the lush backcountry of Nuuk, Greenland's capital city, and visit Sisimiut, North America's largest city above the Arctic Circle. Immerse yourself in secluded whaling settlements such as Kitsissuarsuit and Qeqertaq. At the Eqi Glacier, board Zodiacs and cruise along a fjord to observe the dramatic spectacle of "ice calving"—when pieces of a glacier break away and form icebergs. Revel in the sculpture-like icebergs created by the UNESCO-listed Ilulissat Icefjord. Venture to Evighed Fjord, where you will savor the tranquil beauty of the steep, towering basalt peaks. Throughout this odyssey, sample distinctive cuisine, peruse small yet beautiful collections of Greenlandic art, and marvel at colossal ice formations.
