As we travel from South Greenland to East Greenland, our journey begins in Qaqortoq and an area that offers both history and culture as well as natural wonders and wildlife – with Norse explorers, Inuit culture, hot springs, whales and amazing landscapes. We then explore the Mordor mountains of Prince Christian Sound and continue along the wild, beautiful and unchartered eastern coastline. Our final destinations, the Sermilik fjord area and the town of Tasiilaq, treat us with the aftermath of an ice explosion – and icebergs in all shapes – as well as stories and myths of the local Tunumiit culture.
Travelling with a small group of merely 12 passengers gives us more flexibility, more unique itineraries and more time ashore. Also, the footprints we leave behind are a lot smaller! We get to visit remote settlements, meet the welcoming people living here and in a personal way learn more about their fascinating culture. The M/S Balto has a lot of experience of and is designed to explore the most remote fjord systems and take you to secret anchorages. This is true micro cruising.
