An incredible voyage to one of the most isolated regions of the world, exploring its unspoiled and spectacular landscape
East Greenland is one of the most isolated regions on earth. Inhabited by little more than 3,500 people, it is accessible by ship only five months a year. Nowhere on earth can nature's most spectacular light show be better seen than in the autumn and winter skies above Greenland's eastern coast, and this departure offers the best chance to observe the majestic Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights.
On this voyage, we visit the remains of Thule camps, the ancestors of the indigenous people of Greenland, enjoy the splendour of 'iceberg alley' as the ship navigates past majestic icebergs, some over 100 metres high, and get a glimpse into the lifestyle of the remote residents of Ittoqqortoormiit, the most northerly community in East Greenland.
This tour also offers once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to hike some of the most pristine wilderness on the planet.
What makes this trip responsible?
We take extremely seriously our responsibility to minimise our impact on these pristine areas. Exodus is an Associate Member of the International Association of Antarctica Tour Operators (IAATO) and has agreed to abide by one of the tourism world's most conscientious codes of conduct. Our ship operators in Spitsbergen are also members of the Association of Arctic Expedition Cruise Operators (AECO), which covers operations in Spitsbergen.
However, perhaps the single most important thing any polar travel company can do, is educate their clients to travel sensitively and compassionately. Our expedition team on each ship takes this part of their role very seriously, and looks forward to explaining how everyone can play their part.
