One of that biggest issues that travelers have with Greenland is the fact that the huge North Atlantic island is difficult to reach from just about anywhere but Copenhagen — capital of the country (Denmark) that has nominally ruled the territory for so long.
But Iceland ProCruises makes it easy to visit Greenland on two late-summer itineraries that feature natural wonders and cultural highlights in both countries.
Iceland and Natural Wonders of Greenland is the outbound voyage, a 12-day passage on the MV Ocean Diamond between Reykjavik and Kangerlussuaq on Greenland’s west coast. Passengers disembarking in Greenland can linger on the giant island or fly straight back to Iceland.
The return leg is called Natural Wonders of Greenland and Iceland, another 12-day trip that starts with a flight between Reykjavik and Kangerlussuaq before a exploration of the island’s fjord-filled west coast and a sail across the fabled Denmark Strait.
What makes these trips (and visiting Greenland) even easier is the fact that Keflavik International Airport features a dozen daily departures between Iceland and major cities in both North America and Europe.
