With Black Watch taking you on a mesmeric expedition to the remote regions and settlements of Greenland, the experiences on offer on this 14-night cruise are nothing short of incredible. From sailing spectacular waterways and marvelling at astonishing landscapes to immersing yourself in Greenlandic culture, you’ll revel in the rich rewards of this remarkable country.

You’ll be introduced to the scenic splendour of Greenland’s rugged, ancient lands in the most perfect way possible, with unforgettable cruising of the immaculate Prins Christiansund – rated the best scenic cruising experience by Fred. Olsen guests – and Torssukátak Fjord.

A call at Nanortalik offers a fascinating insight into Greenlandic local life. The town’s Open Air Museum is trove of treasures and traditions; stop-by to see clothing, kayaks and much more from the region, and enjoy live music and dancing performed exclusively for your visit. After Nanortalik, scenic cruising of Tasermuit Fjord’s azure waters will showcase some of Greenland’s mightiest mountains and cliffs. [ReadMoreDesk]

Visiting Narsarsuaq will present an opportunity to take a boat tour of the awe-inspiring Qooroq Ice Fjord. Venture into this majestic waterway and you’ll not only see beautiful blue and white icebergs, which break away from the magnificent Qooroq Glacier, up-close in all their frozen glory, but also hear their creaks, roars and whispers. There’s also Qaqortoq, rich in authentic culture and Norse history, and set to a beautiful backdrop of craggy hills. With ample time to explore this traditional town, you can uncover many attractions best seen on foot, including the interesting museum, the intriguing Stone & Man sculptures and the town square and fountain. Elsewhere, you’ll head to Iceland too, for chances to seek-out the wonders of the ‘Golden Circle’ – including the Gullfoss Waterfall and mighty Strokkur Geyser – from Reykjavik.

Aboard our smaller, friendlier ships you'll find there's plenty of room to stretch out by the pool, enjoy a drink and great conversation with like-minded guests, and make the most of your time away. Sailing with hundreds, not thousands, of others allows you to get ashore faster too, and make the most of each destination.
