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

    Your adventure in the icy realms of the Inuit and Vikings: from the secrets of ancient cultures on the west coast of the world’s largest island to the remote natural spectacles of Northeast Greenland National Park, unique days of discovery await you. Learn about the island’s settlement history as you start your journey in Sisimiut, with its picturesque old town which resembles a museum village. Your experts will shed light on some adventurous chapters of Greenland’s history – such as whaling – during a hike to Tele Island. From lively Ilulissat you will continue to the ice fjord – a UNESCO World Heritage Site – where glistening ice masses tower into the sky. And then you will see it in front of you: Disko Bay. Experience the “water ballet” of drifting icebergs, which have broken off from the local glacier, up-close on a Zodiac ride.

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

    The history of mining is brought to life at the Ivigtut settlement on the Arsukfjord. It was abandoned in 1987 after they stopped mining cryolite. The mysticism of this place gives way to the drama of nature on a trip through Prins Christian Sund. A unique series of images will pass you by, with waterfalls and glaciers reaching into the turquoise-blue water. The ice shield on the coast of East Greenland only opens up in the early autumn and provides visitors with a rare insight into this treasure chest of creation. The BREMEN’s flexible route will cover deep fjords, bizarre icebergs and majestic glaciers. Here, on the seldom-visited, unspoilt east coast of Greenland, everything is particularly dependent on the weather and ice conditions.

    South and east coast of Greenland (highlights and landings depend on the weather and ice conditions, including Skjoldungen Sound, Tasiilaq, Scoresbysund, Northeast Greenland National Park, Ittoqqortoormiit)

    The crew – experienced in polar voyages – react flexibly, always with the aim to offer you the greatest possible experience. This will also be the case in the Skjoldungen Sound, on the south-east coast, where you will embark on a hike in the tundra and explore the vast landscape. Here, as in many other places on your cruise, 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 against the expansive, lonely backdrop. Always accompanying you will be your experts, who will tell you all about the vegetation, animal kingdom and geology. Tasiilaq, one of only two settlements in this wild region, is a place where humans are the rarest species. In the middle of a rugged fjord landscape, you will land to encounter the culture of the Inuit. The expedition route continues north, and the BREMEN will head for a natural environment of superlatives: Scoresbysund, the world’s largest fjord system, and Northeast Greenland National Park further to the north – the biggest and least-visited national park on the planet. This is where the tension mounts: will the BREMEN manage to push on further north to the King Oscar Fjord? What course will the weather and ice conditions allow it to take? The very things that made journeys uncertain and risky for seafarers in the past are what make your expedition exciting today and lend the BREMEN its pioneering spirit. Scoresbysund delights with Greenland’s highest mountains, gigantic glaciers and icebergs glittering like sapphires. In addition to insights into great exploratory achievements, you will be enchanted here by marvellous views again and again – and maybe even the Northern Lights. Such as at Cape Tobin, an abandoned settlement that used to be a weather station and has hot springs nearby. Steep rock faces shape the landscape, and with a little luck, you will encounter Arctic foxes and musk oxen on walks through the autumnal tundra. Northeast Greenland National Park promises genuinely new terrain, with magnificent natural experiences. The cliffs of the Alpefjord are 3,000 m (9,842 ft) high. They are spectacular when viewed from the deck and even greater on a possible Zodiac ride – as is the view of the fjord’s glaciers, with bizarre fronts in white and blue. Limestone mountains display striking colours in almost perfect geometric patterns, thanks to mineral deposits. Perhaps you will even see a polar bear in the labyrinth of the King Oscar Fjord. The memories of this scenery will only belong to you and the small group of explorers on board the BREMEN. People are few and far between in Ittoqqortoormiit, one of Greenland’s most isolated settlements. The inhabitants will provide insights into their lives and traditions. You will find it difficult to leave this Arctic paradise and return to civilisation. After crossing the Arctic Circle again, you will leave Greenland behind you – but you will take with you plenty of vivid memories of this fascinating cruise.
