Reykjavik to Boston
Venture into the lesser-known coastlines and communities of Greenland, Canada and New England during this remarkable 25-day cruise crossing the North Atlantic. Admire fractured glaciers, ivory ice fields and drifting ice floes on a day of scenic cruising in Greenland’s remote and picturesque Prince Christian Sound. Sample grilled wolf fish, dried salted cod and tender musk ox meat amid stacked crab pots, fish-drying racks and brightly painted houses in Qaqortoq, Nanortalik and Narsaq in Greenland. Wander the grounds of a 1,000-year-old Norse settlement near St. Anthony, and tour sod buildings identical to those that sheltered early settlers from harsh Newfoundland winters centuries ago. Walk among weathered French and British artillery artifacts at National Battlefields Park, or sip your way through Quebec City’s outstanding microbreweries on a delicious walking tour in a thriving downtown community. Settle back in a horse-drawn carriage as you trace the famous Carriage Trails of Acadia near Bar Harbor, Maine.
