We are closing in on the heart of West Greenland, Disco Bay! While we sail from Nuuk and up there to our northernmost goal of this west greenlandic expedition, we will explore the fjords and spectacular scenery on the way, and go ashore on a selection of all the great visit worthy spots here. We end this leg with a small peek into the famous and UNESCO World Heritage area Illusatfjord, where the calving glacier Sermeq Kujalleq fills the fjord with the world's largest icebergs straight from the vast Greenlandic inland ice sheet.

We start this leg in the capitol of Greenland, Nuuk (or Godthåp as the Danes call it). A vibrant arctic city and clearly the cultural and political center of this hugh counry! From where we work our way norht along the rugged and scenic coast here in western Greenland. 

We will spend quite some time of this week inshore among the fjords, mountains and islands here. But we will for some longer stretches go a little more offshore and sail through some of the nights. Having the wheelhouse filled with the midnight sun on our night watches, as we cover some unique seamiles.

The trip ends at our most northern goal for this whole expedition; Disco Bay, and in the charming little fishing village of Ilulissat. With its colorfull houses dotted up the hills from the bay, and the entrance to the harbour filled with hugh stranded icebergs!


From SeilNorge we will be 2-3 skippers and crew, of which all are great sailors, and of which at least one of us has solid experience from similar expeditions.  We will work as guides and polar bear guards when we are ashore in the terrain. Along the way, sailing or on motor, we will include all participants in the sailing. We will generally sail at all times of the day, and everyone onboard will be running watches of 4 hours on and 8 hours off.

It's not just any sailboat we use on this trip, but our 70-feet expedition boat Valiente. She is a very steady and comfortable boat built in steel, made for sailing in arctic waters. The boat is well equipped and has a large outdoor area, a wheelhouse and a 360-degree-view lounge. For pictures and more info about Valiente see link here.

This expedition is like our other adventures, primarily a major exploration, but also a great opportunity to learn a lot about sailing and navigation, and not least the use of a boat as a starting point for explorations and experiences ashore. Are you ready for the summer's expedition from Iceland to Greenland?


We recommend all participants to remain a couple of days extra in Greenland, as there’s a lot to see and do here. We’ll send out tips and info on activities and accommodation to all participants.


The Arctic is a vulnerable area under pressure from people and climate change. In SeilNorge we are committed to taking care of the environment as much as possible and we believe that small boats with few people and little pollution and waste are much less harmful to the environment, climate and local wildlife, than larger boats and cruise ships. We also try to gather garbage at the places we visit, instead of leaving something behind. On Svalbard and Greenland we follow AECO's guidelines for encounters with wildlife, beach cleaning, cultural heritage sites and for arctic operators. More about AECO's guidelines can be read here. https://www.aeco.no/guidelines/

This longer expedition to Greenland is a dream we’ve had for a long time. Last year we had to postpone - this year we set sail for new adventures!
Many have already showed their interest for the different legs so this will be very exciting!
