About the voyage
Greenland is the biggest island on our planet. In the summer of 2024, Moretime Expeditions will run a series of training sail voyages from Iceland to East Greenland on the sailing ship Wylde Swan.
The eastern part of the island is famous for its wild, unspoilt nature. There are fewer tourists and you can enjoy a myriad of fjords, icebergs, whales and seals. We want to introduce you to this very particular and remote part of Greenland.
Greenland's glaciers are considered to be the second largest freshwater reservoir in the world after Antarctica. We will get as close as possible to them on our fast and agile schooner Wylde Swan to listen to the cracking of falling ice and watch the giant icebergs drifting in the ocean.

Number of days: 14
Distance: 1031 nautical miles
In polar expedition conditions, the weather may change rapidly. The captain has the right to change the declared route and  the departure schedule to account for these changes.
We know the habitats of whales and other sea animals and always expect to encounter them,  but we cannot guarantee that.

Reykjavik
The capital of Iceland, a modern city with narrow streets, colourful houses, numerous museums, good restaurants and friendly locals. We recommend to set a day aside to visit Reykjavík before the expedition begins.

The Wylde Swan will be waiting for you at the city's main harbour, near the famous Harpa concert hall.
Reykjavik2
Kulusuk settlement
Kulusuk is the first point on our itinerary after a three-day voyage from Iceland to East Greenland.
Kulusuk is home to just over 200 people, among them Danes and Inuits, but there is a health centre, a church and a cemetery there.

The name translates from Greenlandic as 'chest of the black guillemot', a polar bird that nests in the area.
Angmagssalik district and Tasiilaq settlement
The largest settlement in East Greenland is Angmagssalik, also called Tasiilaq. The town is located in a picturesque fjord surrounded by high mountains, and there is always snow on their slopes and peaks. Beautiful icebergs can be seen on the way to the settlement, as well as sperm whales and humpback whales.

Beautiful icebergs can be seen on the way to the settlement, as well as sperm whales and humpback whales.

In all the Greenlandic villages the houses are colourful. It used to be that the colour of the house denoted the occupation of the person living there. When you entered the port, you could immediately see where the doctor, postman or carpenter lived. Today, houses are simply painted in the colours chosen by those who live in them.
The town has a population of no more than 2,000. Most of the locals are native people of Greenlanders, the Inuits. The traditional occupation for the Inuits is hunting (sea animals and bears), and fishing.

Tasiilaq has a history museum of the area, where you can learn about Inuit life, practise balancing on a kayak and see how everyday life is organised in an Inuit house.
Sermilik and Johan Petersen Fjords
Sermilik is the region's most ice-carrying fjord, with huge icebergs the size of an entire city drifting off its glaciers. One can see the famous Greenland ice sheet from the fjord, and whales can also be found there. The fjord has four major outcrops of the main Greenland Ice Shelf and is almost always littered with huge, bizarrely shaped icebergs.

Sermilik and Johan Petersen Fjords
Sermilik is the region's most ice-carrying fjord, with huge icebergs the size of an entire city drifting off its glaciers. One can see the famous Greenland ice sheet from the fjord, and whales can also be found there. The fjord has four major outcrops of the main Greenland Ice Shelf and is almost always littered with huge, bizarrely shaped icebergs. The main 'suppliers' of icebergs are the Helheimgletscher, Isgletscher, Midgardgletscher glaciers, which are located in the northern part of Sermilik Fjord.

We will try to get as close as possible to Harn glacier to have a look at the icefall, listen to the crack of melting ice and if we want we can swim in ice-cold melt water too. Then we’ll head up Sermilik Fjord as far as the ice conditions will allow.
Tiilerilaaq settlement
An old Inuit village is situated on the 'mainland' part of Greenland, on the shore of Sermilik Fjord. It is one of the most interesting and beautiful places in East Greenland. Directly from the shore we can watch the majestic scene of gigantic icebergs of different bizarre shapes floating in front of us. Here you can stroll around and buy something tasty from the local hunters and fishermen. They usually cure river trout and cod. Depending on the tide and the ice conditions, we might have a chance to go on our motorboat amongst the huge mahouts of ice.
Kuummiut Inuit village
We should have some time to walk around the village, meet the locals, take pictures of small ice floes by the shores and, if we are lucky, we’ll get to meet the Inuits who have returned from their hunting and keep busy with sorting the slaughtered seals.
After that we will go deeper into the fjord, towards the Knud Rasmussen glacier. These areas are often referred to as 'Greenland Patagonia': huge jagged mountains will soar above our ship. Here you can go on a scenic trek to the glacier along the fjord or go fishing.
Utorqarmiut
In Greenlandic, Sermiligaaq means 'beautiful ice fjord'. The village has a population of just over 200 people and is an active hunting and fishing village. There are many anglers here, and the catch is sold to the factory in the nearby village of Kuummiut. As the name implies, Sermiligaaq is close to several beautiful glaciers, including Knud Rasmussen and Kârale Glacier.
