In the end, our time up here in Disco Bay is over for this summer, and we have to set our course southwards again! This part of the expedition offers longer sailing legs where we will cover quite a handfull of nautical miles. In between the sailing we explore the majestic scenery and land on our favorite spots. This will be a great adventure where your bag will be filleg with unforgettable memories as you get dinghy-shuttled to the airport in Narsarsuaq the last day.

We start this leg from all the way north in Disco Bay and Ilulisat. From where we will spend quite some time sailing south along most of the Greenlandic Westcoast. On this journey you will cover a lot of seamiles and can expect quite many full days and nights at sea, also on offshore streches. 

Though we anyways have almost two weeks to spend, and we will definitely spend some of this time inshore among the fjords, mountains and ilands here. Exploring these vast landscapes, looking for wildlife, hiking in untouched sceneries and trying our fishing luck!

We end this trip in one of the larger setlements in the south; Narssarsuaq.


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!
