    Western coast of Greenland (Disko Bay, Sisimiut, Nuuk)

    Between ice and history
    On Greenland’s western coast, Disko Bay is the perfect precursor to numerous natural spectacles: when cruising and riding in the Zodiacs, watch the mighty ice formations that drift from the ice fjord into the bay. Impressions that will stay with you all the way to Sisimiut, where the remarkable old town seems like a museum village. With its historic harbour and modern centre, the capital Nuuk bridges the gap between the past and the present.

    Qassiarsuk , cruising through Prins Christian Sund (depending on ice)

    The small settlement of Qassiarsuk will take you back around 1,000 years and bring the history of the Vikings to life. The reconstructed long house of Erik the Red and the Norman ruins bear fascinating witness to times gone by. Your daytime passage through Prins Christian Sund presents you with a series of images that glide by – from waterfalls to glaciers that reach down to the turquoise water.

    East coast of Greenland (including Skjoldungen Sound, Ammassalik, Ittoqqortoormiit, Scoresbysund, King Oscar Fjord, Alpefjord)

    Nordic views in the remote east
    The ice shield on the coast of East Greenland only opens up in the early autumn and will provide passengers on board the BREMEN with a rare insight into this treasure chest of creation: our flexible route, which will take in places such as Skjoldungen Sound, will cover deep fjords, huge icebergs and majestic glaciers. Again and again, the Zodiacs will be put to water and you will get up-close to the wonders of nature – with a good chance of seeing whales and musk oxen. Here, humans are the rarest species. Ammassalik is one of only two settlements in this wild region. In the middle of a rugged fjord landscape, you will land to encounter the culture and traditions of the Inuit. A hike with our experts will take you to glittering lakes and waterfalls. The inhabitants of Ittoqqortoormiit, a small settlement in an Arctic paradise, also live in complete isolation. From this point on, nature rules andScoresbysund will almost certainly be a highlight of your expedition. The BREMEN will spend sufficient time in the world’s largest fjord system and explore this superlative labyrinth. Greenland’s highest mountains, impressive glaciers and icebergs glittering like sapphires shape the region. The natural harbour of Hekla Havn recalls the pioneers who, for example, discovered the region around the Danish island 125 years ago. In addition to historical insights, you will be enchanted here by marvellous views again and again – and maybe even the Northern Lights. Steep rock faces in the fjords will leave you speechless with reverence. With a little luck, you will spot enormous icebergs and encounter Arctic foxes and musk oxen on walks through the autumnal tundra. Experience expedition in the purest sense when the BREMEN also heads for destinations further north in the National Park in northeast Greenland. Subject to official approval and depending on the ice conditions, the cliffs of theAlpefjord, over 3,000 m (9,842 ft) high, are spectacular when viewed from the deck and even greater on a possible Zodiac ride. And in King Oscar Fjord, Greenland’s natural world will provide a crowning glory to your unforgettable impressions – and maybe even a polar bear sighting.

    Iceland (Husavik, Seydisfjoerdur)

    Iceland’s untamed natural world
    An exciting way to experience even more nature: Iceland’s oldest settlement, Husavik, is Europe’s whale-watching centre. From the museum about the marine mammals, your tour continues in the bay with some whale watching off Husavik*. With a little luck, humpback whales, minke whales and dolphins will appear. The Godafoss waterfall and Midge Lake* provide very special natural spectacles. According to legend, the last pagan idols were consigned to the waterfall in around 1,000 CE, while Lake Myvatn paints a rugged landscape scene. The settlement of Seydisfjoerdur in the seldom-visited eastern fjords is an exciting destination for the BREMEN. You will gain an impression of life in this remote region on a walk with your experts.
