International outbound flight , Toronto
Today you begin your journey by boarding your international outbound flight to Toronto. On arrival in Toronto, make your own way to your hotel, located close to the airport terminal. You have the rest of the day at leisure ahead of your early morning departure to Greenland tomorrow.
Toronto , Kangerlussuaq (Sondre Stromfjord)
Today you will join your fellow passengers as you board a charter flight from Toronto to Kangerlussuaq in Greenland. You will be met on arrival and transferred to the Ocean Endeavour. Lying at the head of the longest fjord in western Greenland, Kangerlussuaq `big fjord` in Greenlandic, is appropriately named, as it is 168 kilometres long and is the start of your voyage.
Sisimiut Coast , Kangerlussuaq (Sondre Stromfjord)
The west Greenland coastline is a rich mixture of fishing communities, myriad islands and complex coastal waterways. There will be an expedition stop here to enable you to explore the Greenlandic landscape.
Ilulissat , Kangerlussuaq (Sondre Stromfjord)
Visit the colourful coastal town of Ilulissat and explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Ilulissat Icefjord by Zodiac.
Karrat Fjord , Kangerlussuaq (Sondre Stromfjord)
In Karrat Fjord you will cruise one of Greenland`s most spectacular fjords. During ice break up, narwhals and seals use the long leads created by high winds in this region to hunt the rich waters of the fjord. Time spent on deck today should result in some good wildlife sightings.
Upernavik , Kangerlussuaq (Sondre Stromfjord)
Explore Upernavik today, including the town cemetery and Old Town Museum. Weather depending, there should be fantastic views of the Davis Strait today.
Kap York , Kangerlussuaq (Sondre Stromfjord)

Today you will visit the National Wildlife Area of Coburg Island at the entrance to Jones Sound, home to almost 200,000 pairs of birds.
Devon Island , Kangerlussuaq (Sondre Stromfjord)
Explore Devon Island — the largest uninhabited island in the world, before a zodiac trip through the icebergs in Croker Bay.

Melville Island , Kangerlussuaq (Sondre Stromfjord)
