Itinerary

Polar travel requires an amount of flexibility as weather, ice conditions and wildlife can all affect where your ship is able to access, and where your Expedition Team think you will get the best experience possible from your trip. On board, daily updates are given to advise what the specific itinerary will be for the next day based on local conditions. Published itineraries are subject to change when local conditions dictate. For Arctic Express (Cruise North, Fly South, Fly North and South and Fly North, Cruise South) programmes, Quark Expeditions will make every effort to ensure the Arctic Express programs take place, but due to weather conditions, flying in this region can be difficult and is beyond the control of Quark Expeditions. We strongly recommend that all expedition guests purchase a travel insurance policy including trip delay, cancellation and interruption insurance. On Fly North itineraries, in the unlikely event that the charter flight is unable to fly on Day 2 or Day 3 due to weather delays, Quark Expeditions will provide an additional night(s) hotel accommodation in Reykjavik. On Day 4 should the charter flight not be able to take off by 1159hrs, Quark Expeditions will officially cancel the voyage and provide letters for all clients to submit to their travel insurance providers under trip delay/Interruption and cancellation clause. QUARK AND PEREGRINE WILL NOT OFFER PASSENGERS A REFUND IN THE EVENT OF TRIP CANCELLATION. QUARK AND PEREGRINE WILL NOT OFFER PASSENGERS COMPENSATION IN THE EVENT OF A DELAY. IF THE CHARTER FLIGHT IS NOT ABLE TO TAKE OFF BY 1159 HRS ON DAY 4, Quark Expeditions will make every effort to assist passengers with rebooking hotels or flights, but this will be at the cost of the passengers, and Quark Expeditions strongly recommends that all clients contact their insurance provider prior to changing any reservations. Passengers on board the ship during these delays will remain on board with no additional cost until the charter flight is able to operate. Quark Expeditions advises all clients to book changeable airlines tickets along with cancellation and interruption insurance to assist with additional airline change fees. We advise all passengers to have flexible travel arrangements upon disembarkation of the voyage if delays arise. Quark Expeditions will not be held responsible for any change/cancellations fees due to weather related delays or any other delays arising from force majeure.

Day 1 - Reykjavik – Narsarsuaq – Embarkation Day
Welcome to Reykjavik – the capital of Iceland. This afternoon, you will be boarding a charter flight to Greenland with Air Iceland at Reykjavik–Keflavik Airport, so please arrive at the airport by 3 pm to allow time for check-in and security procedures. Your flight is bound for Narsarsuaq, and on a clear day, the views from the plane on descent are stunning. Once arrived, board your vessel, settle into your stateroom and meet your expedition crew before embarking this evening.
Day 2-7 - Southern Greenland
The next six days are dedicated to exploring the remote reaches of Greenland’s southern shores. While there is a tentative route set, your expert crew will ensure the best itinerary is followed so that your expedition will maximise shore landings and wildlife spotting. During this time, cruise through rugged fjords, past glacial waterfalls and snow-capped peaks and to bays dotted with floating icebergs. You will explore the region by Zodiac boat, allowing you to hug the coastline and get as close as possible to ice shelves with walruses basking and polar bears roaming. Weather and ice conditions permitting, your expedition will take advantage of the ship’s fleet of twin-engine helicopters for sightseeing and shore landing experiences otherwise inaccessible. You will go deep in the icy wilderness and set out on hikes for all skill levels. Luckily for you, each day will be different; however, the expedition team will endeavour to explore the best of Narsarsuaq, Tasermiut and Lindenow.
Day 8 - Narsarsuaq – Disembarkation Day – Reykjavik
Upon arrival, disembark from your ship and, if your group has time, explore the surrounding area and historical sites. Afterwards, return to the airport and board your included charter flight to Reykjavik–Keflavik Airport in the early evening. On arrival, take an included transfer to your accommodation in Keflavik.
Day 9 - Reykjavik
With no activities included for today, your tour comes to an end and you are free to leave the accommodation.
