This extraordinary sailing showcases staggering geographic diversity, covering over 2,200 nautical miles from the head of Sondre Stromfjord in Greenland all the way to St. John’s, NL— stopping at four Canadian National Parks along the way.

We set out along the western coast of Greenland, calling at Nuuk, one of the world’s northernmost capital cities, and exploring one of the many fjords for which the area is famed. Across Davis Strait in Canada, we visit stunning Torngat Mountains National Park—the first and only National Park in Canada to be staffed completely by Inuit. Here, at the edge of the Canadian shield, massive mountains slope down to the Labrador Sea, forming one of the most dramatic coastlines in Canada. Northern Labrador has to be seen to be believed—and we will do just that, via daily Zodiac expeditions and organized excursions.

As we move further south, we'll visit the newly created Akami-Uapishk-KakKasuak—Mealy Mountains National Park Reserve, Canada's 46th National Park; encompassing 10,700 square kilometres, it is the largest in eastern Canada. Crossing the Strait of Belle Isle to Newfoundland, we'll pay our respects to North America’s Viking visitors at L’Anse aux Meadows. While in Newfoundland, we'll explore Terra Nova National Park before ending our voyage in historic St. John’s.

Our flight from Toronto will land at the former US air base of Kangerlussuaq. From there, we follow the longest road in Greenland (at twenty kilometres!) to our disembarkation point, where Zodiacs await to take us to the Ocean Endeavour. From there, 168 kilometres of superb scenery await us as we sail spectacular Sondre Stromfjord, one of the longest fjords in the world.
