Greenland and Wild Labrador: A Torngat Mountains Adventure (15 days)
Explore West Greenland and its capital of Nuuk where you will find great art, shopping, and cafes. Enjoy the Greenland National Museum featuring the famous Qilakitsoq mummies, participate in onboard learning through workshops and presentations and look for whales, seabirds, and other marine wildlife as you make your way through the Davis Strait. Journey around the Torngat Mountains National Park in Newfoundland –where the Inuit of Nunatsiavut will be your guides on their native land.
Stop on the island of Hebron, a haunting site that preserves an abandoned mission that forced the relocation of the Inuit who previously lived in the area. Cruise to Nain, the capital of Nunatsiavut, the most northerly community in Labrador where you will visit Illusuak and the Moravian Church. Then coast along the edges of Labrador viewing coastal barrens, high subarctic tundra, high boreal forest, mid-boreal forest, and string bog, as well as islands that you can step out on should the conditions of the day be favorable. From there you will travel to Newfoundland where you will step into the only authenticated Norse settlement in North America – L’Anse Aux Meadows – and then continue our journey along the coast of Newfoundland where you will finish your cruise in St. John’s.
