June 2024 – Did you know Greenland is the largest island on the planet but only has a population of 56,000 inhabitants making it one of the most sparsely populated places on Earth?

The lucky few who visit Greenland, rarely make it to Scoresby Sund due to only being accessible from August – October and Secret Atlas has launched a new Expedition Micro Cruise to allow small intimate groups to explore the stunning fjord system, towering icebergs, elusive wildlife and the remote community of Ittoqqortoormiit.

With only 12 guests onboard, Secret Atlas promises an intimate experience with crowd-free expeditions and flexible itineraries led by world-class expedition leaders ensuring the best chance of seeing muskox, glaciers and the Northern Lights, which appear from September.

Setting sail onboard the MV Vikingfjord, the Expedition Micro Cruise spends eight days exploring the stunning landscapes of Scoresby Sund including as much time as possible spent off the ship on daily Zodiac cruises and onshore hikes.

Guests are in for a treat at the end of the expedition, sailing up the longest fjord on the planet and past the impressive ice giants of Scoresby Sund before visiting the small and remote community of Ittoqqortoormiit. Made up of only 400 Greenlandic people, Ittoqqortoormiit is one of the most isolated settlements in Greenland and a unique opportunity to learn about Inuit traditions.

Secret Atlas Co-Founder and enthusiast explorer Michele D’Agostino said, “When I first entered Scoresby Sund Fjord in July 2018, I immediately understood what a fascinating and unique part of the planet it was. We decided to launch the East Greenland micro cruise to allow a small group of guests the opportunity to experience this remote part of the world in an authentic and private way, but with minimal impact to the community, wildlife and environment.”
