Reykjavik to Montreal
Float past turquoise-tinged ice floes as you experience Greenland’s remote southern fjords and villages prior to visiting the scenic coasts of Newfoundland, Nova Scotia and New England during this 14-day cruise along the North Atlantic’s most pristine and picturesque shorelines. Survey towering icebergs and catch glimpses of fin, killer, and pilot whale pods, along with native seabirds like fulmars, great cormorants and black-legged kittiwakes during your Denmark Strait crossing and subsequent cruise past glacier-etched outcroppings throughout Prince Christian Sound. Embark on an iceberg safari beyond Narsaq. Drift close to towering, picture-perfect ice blocks and calving glaciers in Sermilik Fjord. Sample smoky onion soup, duck filets drenched in wild berry sauce and other authentic French cuisine on a St. Pierre and Miquelon foodie walking tour off the coast of Newfoundland. Ride in an open carriage along the storied Carriage Trails in Acadia National Park and experience the American wilderness the same way visitors did a century ago.
