Marvellous Greenland

Journey off the beaten track to unearth the fascinating culture and inspirational scenery of Greenland on this memorable cruise adventure with your group. Astonishing waterways, remarkable natural wonders and enchanting settlements await amongst these isolated lands. Whilst smaller-sized Boudicca is the perfect guide to uncovering the very best of them.

Iceland

The four days of Greenlandic exploration featured on this incredible 16-night itinerary are packed with unforgettable experiences. First, visit Iceland for an overnight stay in Reykjavik, gateway to the wonders of the Golden Circle and the Blue Lagoon. Also, enjoy scenic cruising of the immaculate Prins Christiansund and Torssukátak Fjord. Once there expect the perfect introduction to the scenic splendour of Greenland. While views of soaring mountains, glorious glaciers, imposing icebergs and cascading waterfalls will whet your appetite. Your first chance to step foot on Greenland’s shores comes in Qaqortoq. During the stop visit the interesting museum and intriguing Stone & Man sculptures. Alternatively experience the Greenlandic tradition of Kaffe-Mik in the company of the town’s friendly locals. Qaqortoq is also ideally located for tours to the Great Lake, which boasts breathtaking Arctic landscapes.

Narsarsuaq

Then there’s Narsarsuaq, starting point for boat tours to the awe-inspiring Qooroq Ice Fjord. Take the exhilarating ride into Qooroq and you’ll see beautiful blue icebergs, which break away from the magnificent Qooroq Glacier, up-close in all their frozen glory. Alternatively, you might choose to venture up Signal Hill in Narsarsuaq to marvel at the unspoilt scenery of Tunugdlliarfik Fjord. Furthermore, embark Boudicca once again to sail Tunugdlliarfik in the evening en route to Nanortalik. Your final call in Greenland offers a fascinating insight into life in region. The Open Air Museum showcases traditional clothing, kayaks and much more, while a live performance of song and dance from the locals is sure to delight. For one last memorable Greenlandic experience, you’ll also enjoy scenic cruising of the majestic Tasermuit Fjord before Boudicca heads back to Dover via Scotland’s rugged Orkney Islands.

Dover, United Kingdom

Home of the famous White Cliffs, Dover is one of England’s most iconic towns.

Read more

Located on the south-east coast of England just 21 miles across the English Channel from France, Dover – home of the world’s busiest passenger port – is the first sight for many visitors arriving from around the world.

This historic town is much more than a gateway to Britain, and offers much to discover, including the 12th century Dover Castle – which overlooks the pretty harbour and houses the extensive Secret Wartime Tunnels – Archcliffe Fort, and the Western Heights, where a series of coastal defences and unspoilt nature reserves await exploration.

Reykjavík, Iceland

Reykjavik – Iceland’s stunning coastal capital and cultural centre – is the world’s most northerly capital. The city combines colourful buildings, impulsive, creative people, extraordinary design, and some of the country’s most beautiful natural wonders.

Read more

The cosmopolitan city with big heart is home to the Althing – the world’s oldest parliament, and the National and Saga Museums, which trace Iceland’s Viking history. The impressive Hallgrímskirkja Church bell tower and the rotating Perlan glass dome offer panoramic views off island. Reykjavik’s galleries and exhibitions, including the outstanding Reykjavík Art Museum and National Gallery, feature radical Icelandic design, and there are many public art installations.

The capital has benefited from a recent surge in high-quality restaurant openings, offering a broad mix of creative cuisine. Daytime cafés switch to restaurants and bars at night – tapas, concept-dining and burger joints all sit comfortably together. And then there’s the wonderful nightlife.

Located in southwest Iceland – characterised by vast peninsulas, coves, straits and islands – Reykjavik is in easy reach of several must-see geological attractions. The iconic Golden Circle Trail includes the Blue Lagoon Spa, the Thingvellir National Park, the renowned Gullfoss Waterfall, and the incredible Geysir hot springs.

Nauthólsvík Geothermal Beach – Reykjavik’s little bit of paradise – is also unmissable. The popular sandy beach and geothermal lagoon, where cold sea and hot geothermal waters meet to produce higher temperatures, offers hot-tubs, steam baths and various water sports to try.

Cruising Prins Christiansund & Torssukátak

Carving a breathtaking, naturally-formed path separating the mainland from the pretty islands of Cape Farewell, Prins Christian Sund – named after Christian VIII – is one of Greenland’s most scenic waterways.

Read more

66 miles in length, and flanked by magnificent glaciers and granite cliffs, this narrow passage is only accessible during the summer, when the largest icy blockades melt way, opening up an enticing route in land.

Sailing the sound aboard a Fred. Olsen ship brings you closer to the glaciers, huge icebergs and imposing peaks for unmissable photo opportunities, while a range of wildlife, including bearded seals, seabirds such as black guillemots, and even minke and blue whales, is often seen too. Among the unspolit landscape, the Inuit village of Aappilattoq – the sound’s only sign of human habitation – is also worth looking out for.

Flanked by astonishingly tall seawalls, it feels as though you are cruising through a tunnel as you make your way through the fjord. A favourite with brave climbers, Torssukatak is home to the famous Thumbnail cliff – said to be one of the highest sea cliffs on earth – and the ‘Baroness’ – an imposing, 600 metre high vertical cliff face.

Narsasuaq, Greenland

Narsarsuaq is a small settlement in the Kujalleq municipality in southern Greenland, with a population of no more than 200 inhabitants. Around Narsarsuaq, the attractions include a great diversity of wildlife, gemstones, tours to blue-ice glaciers, and an airfield museum.

Read more

Just outside of Narsarsuaq is Signal Hill, offering panoramic views of the fjord and the icebergs which can occasionally be seen floating past. Inland is the stunning Narsarsuaq Glacier which grows out of the ice sheet of Greenland’s interior. The stunning blue ice of the glacier is within walking distance and is reached via the picturesque Flower Valley.

Based around its international airport – a former US Military Airbase – Narsarsuaq is one of Greenland’s most popular tourist destinations.

Thursday 20th August 2020

Qaqortok, Greenland

Frequently isolated by winter sea ice, the ‘White Palace’, Qaqortoq, is southern Greenland’s largest town. Founded by Norwegian traders in 1775, Qaqortoq still retains some beautiful colonial buildings from that time. The challenging landscape and harsh climate have ensured the preservation of Greenland’s traditional culture, and the many ancient Inuit skills of fishing, hunting and kayaking.

Read more

Qaqortoq is very proud of its ancient fountain – for many years the only one in Greenland – which has carvings of whales spouting water out of their blowholes, and the names of all of the town burghers in brass letters around its base. The Stone and Man project is also fascinating, featuring natural rock that’s been carved by local artists into abstract shapes and figures.

The charming Church of Our Saviour, dating from 1832, is found in the town centre, and the two local museums are also worth seeing. The ancient but well preserved Hvalsey Norse ruins are just outside the town. Hvalsey is mentioned in the Icelandic annals, the Flateyjarbók, and has extensive and substantial remains of dwellings dating back over a thousand years.

Friday 21st August 2020

Nanortalik, Greenland

Nanortalik – Greenland’s most southerly town – is unlike any other town in the country. Sat on a small island at the end of a wonderful fjord and surrounded by vast snow-topped mountains, the ‘Place of Polar Bears’ is truly unique.

Read more

The small woodlands and prairies against a spectacular backdrop make this is a nature lover’s paradise. Polar bears live and hunt on the sea ice close to the town and are often seen from the shores of Nanortalik. Seals and whales can also be spotted in the surrounding waters. In the winter months, visitors are often lucky enough to capture the Aurora Borealis – Mother Nature’s own spectacular display, with curtains of white, yellow and green flashes lighting up the sky.

The town has a well preserved historic quarter where there are cafés and an unusual wooden church. Brightly coloured houses line the streets, while the Nanortalik Museum has some fascinating exhibits including the oldest women’s boat ever found, which dates back to 1440 and was found by polar explorer and artist, Eigil Knuth.

Scrabster, Scotland, United Kingdom

Scrabster is the most northerly large port in mainland Britain and can be found a mile and a half north west of the centre of Thurso at the east end of Thurso Bay. It nestles in the shelter of the low grass-covered cliffs of Holborn Head which sweep round to the north and as a result Scrabster actually looks east across Thurso Bay towards Dunnet Head rather than, as you might expect, north towards Orkney, for which it serves as the main ferry terminus.

Read more

The origins of Scrabster date back to the Norse era. Such an obvious natural harbour would have been very attractive to Viking longships. The Orkneyinga Saga, written in about 1225, refers to it as Skarabolstadr. This comes from Old Norse, but exactly what it means is a matter for debate. One source says it comes from “clifftop homestead”, while others feel it more likely that it should be translated as “seagull homestead”, or even as a homestead belonging to someone whose name or nickname was “Skari”.

Located on the south-east coast of England just 21 miles across the English Channel from France, Dover – home of the world’s busiest passenger port – is the first sight for many visitors arriving from around the world.

This historic town is much more than a gateway to Britain, and offers much to discover, including the 12th century Dover Castle – which overlooks the pretty harbour and houses the extensive Secret Wartime Tunnels – Archcliffe Fort, and the Western Heights, where a series of coastal defences and unspoilt nature reserves await exploration.


Ship Information

Up to 880 people can enjoy a cruise on board Boudicca – not the thousands to be found on most ships these days – so there’s plenty of space for everyone. Plus, Boudicca is small enough to reach shores that many rival cruise ships simply cannot access, so guests on board can get closer to the sights that they want to see.

Onboard, indulge yourself at the Tintagel and Four Seasons Restaurants. Lounge around on the Lounge Deck, or in one of our two Jacuzzis. Or splash around in one of the three pools. And when the sun’s shining, enjoy the tasty poolside buffet.

You’ll have days and nights to remember on board Boudicca.
