Greenland has about 150km of roads and none of them link any two towns. However, it has dozens of fiords and hundreds of waterways, meaning almost everyone has a boat. So the best way for anyone to visit Greenland – which isn’t particularly green at all – is to go by expedition cruise ship.
Cruises depart from Canada on the Ocean Endeavour in the summer season; others begin in Greenland and return to Canada via the waters of the Arctic, calling at various remote islands and exploring the North-West Passage. Visiting Greenland, which is a vast ice sheet, is an amazing experience. And jumping into Arctic waters is fun too — in its own way. I took the polar plunge, jumped into the icy waters of the Evighedsfjord (below) and survived o tell the tale.
The Ocean Endeavour is chartered by Adventure Canada every northern summer and undertakes along the St Lawrence River and the coasts of Newfoundland and Labrador as well.
