MARINE MAMMALS WATCHING, GLACIER SNORKELING, POLAR FREEDIVING
Greenland:
find yourself at the ends of the Earth

Ask any of your friends if they've been to Greenland and if any of they have they will definitely tell you you just can't blow such an opportunity. Most likely, though, they haven't: few people get to see these lands with their own eyes and this is exactly why this program's going to be more than just a trip – it's going to be a true adventure. Work up the courage to become a pioneer discovering this remote country and join us for some polar diving with awe-inspiring icebergs towering above the ocean and whales ready to make us the best company ever.

Ready to visit one of the most hard-to-get-to places of the world? Come along, and you won't be able to forget what you will have seen.
We're setting out to reach one of the world's most fascinating and hard-to-get-to places – Greenland. The journey will start in Ilulissat, where the most active northern hemispheric glacier is located. We'll walk around the city for a while and then get close to the famous Ilulissat ice fjord, which servers the source of billion tons of ice that get washed out into the ocean every year. The place is so majestic it's on the list of UNESCO world heritage sites.

Observing fjords from the land is exciting enough, but you can see more than that having submerged into the polar waters to check what they look like from the other side. Diving at iceberg-ridden bays, you'll get a chance not only to run into local flora and fauna representatives, but also see historic shipwreck sites.

If you're looking forward to seeing whales, wait till we get to Aasiaat: this region is known to be inhabited by the biggest number of whales in Greenland, so you're just bound to see a few. We're after something more than just whale watching, though. You'll get why we're so crazy about swimming with whales the moment you see one right next to you, surrounded by gigantic drifting ice rocks.

Later on Disko island you'll see smaller chunks of ice scattered around the black sand beaches of Greenland. The scenery is somewhat surreal – if you're into photography you won't be able to put the camera down.

Hiking to the mountains in Uummannaq to enjoy the views of the city and the ocean is another adventure on the list. Watch locals follow their unique way of life and ask anything about their customs to hear lots of surprising and even shocking things. Did you know whales might have specific spots where they tend to swim to and die? Well, you'll get to see one of such clandestine places for yourself when we get to the whale graveyard.

Enjoy your diving among drifting glaciers in Sarkak and exploring the Okkaatsut settlement of only 46 people. Save some energy to make the most of the diving experience near Okkaatsut, though, as this is another chance for us to take a swim in the ice-cold waters of the ocean in the company of whales.
