Your cruise will begin in this Hanseatic city.

The largest of the Westman Islands was devastated by a volcanic eruption in 1973 – visit the museum Eldheimar* on your own to see impressive exhibits centred around this event.
From the northernmost capital in the world, you travel to the Golden Circle*: visit the mighty Gulfoss waterfall and the hissing geysers. Snorkelling between two continents*, the aerial tour through fire and ice* and riding on Icelandic horses* also promise to be fascinating experiences.
Prins Christian Sund
Marvel at the natural spectacles drifting by as you sail through this 100 km strait: steep mountains, narrow fjords and powerful glaciers that stretch all the way down to the water.
Greenland (Nuuk, Disko Bay, Sisimiut)
Deep fjords, mountainous coastlines and ice everywhere: the largest island in the world promises a wide variety of experiences. The Greenland National Museum* in the capital city of Nuuk offers exciting insights into Inuit culture. Riding in our Zodiacs through the legendary Disko Bay, marvel at the gargantuan blocks of ice drifting through the water in the sunlight. Enjoy a lifestyle somewhere between tradition and modernity in Sisimiut, the second largest city in Greenland.
Embark on a tour of discovery in one of the oldest cities in North America. The landmark: Cabot Tower on Signal Hill. Travel to Cape Spear*, the most eastern point of the continent. Connoisseurs can try Newfoundland’s excellent drinks*: beer, port wine and Cabot Tower Rum.
This coastal city is situated on the vast peninsula known as Gaspesie, which you can explore on a scenic journey*. Hike* or set off on a kayak tour* through Forillon National Park to densely wooded mountains and enormous cliffs.
Saguenay (La Baie)
With a little luck, you will spot beluga whales as you cruise on the Saguenay River early in the morning. “La Fabuleuse” is an exclusive show: the inhabitants re-enact the history of the city from 1603 to the present.
With French origins and North American roots, Quebec welcomes you with savoir-vivre and genuine hospitality – not to mention an excellently preserved old town. The area surrounding this cultural metropolis is also worth taking a detour to explore, with sights such as the Montmorency Falls and the Ile d’Orleans* or the Canyon Sainte-Anne*. The rafting adventure* or horseback riding* in the Laurentians are great experiences for athletic types.
Canada’s oldest industrial centre is now a place brimming with culture, museums and poetry: you will find plaques containing verses and poems all over the city.
