Saga Goes Green(land) After 10 Year Lull
Saga Cruises are to start sailing to Greenland again for the first time in a decade.
Guests can expect to visit picture-book towns, investigate Greenland’s Viking heritage and experience the tranquillity of the remote Eternity Fjord, while enjoying the natural wonders of the Arctic Circle, as well as breathtaking wildlife.
There’s an overnight stay in Greenland’s capital, Nuuk, home to more than 14,000 people, and Spirit of Discovery cruises along Prince Christian Sound where clear waters reflect the rugged and imposing mountains.
At Narsarsuaq guests can venture into the rocky outcrops in search of Viking sites, and discover the story of Norwegian explorer Erik the Red from speaker Sam Hall.
A call to the small settlement of Kangilinnguit, founded by the US Navy to protect an important mineral quarry at nearby Ivittuut, is also on the itinerary while there is more scenic cruising through Disko Bay.
Talks from Dr Simon Boxall of the National Oceanography Centre, plus speakers on Inuit culture and history, expert commentators on sights of interest, as well as whale-watching and traditional local entertainment promise to add to this 21-night all-inclusive voyage.
Departs from Dover on June 16, 2020. From £5,671 per person, all inclusive, aboard Spirit of Discovery. Price based on two people sharing the lowest available balcony cabin.
