Prins Christian Sund, Greenland (Scenic Cruising)
Greenland is the largest island in the world - it covers more than 1,348,872 square miles - yet fewer than 60,000 call it home. A massive ice cap over 2 million years old covers more than 85 percent of the island, sculpting a landscape of intricate fjords and blinding snowfields punctuated by dramatic rock formations. Located on the southernmost tip of Greenland is Prins Christian Sund, a 55-mile long channel that spans a mile across, with mountains rising up a staggering 6,000 feet above sea level. Passage through this channel is truly awe-inspiring.
Discover nature as it should be -- from a distance in the wild. Observe white-beaked dolphins, orcas, Humpback, Blue, Northern Right and Minke whales, as well as wealth of other wildlife in one of the world's remaining pristine settings.
The rugged beauty -- narrow passages, steep fjords, drifting ice floes and towering glaciers -- of Prins Christian Sund channel makes it a hard to place to reach during certain times of the year. For this same reason, it is a very special place to see. And the excellent vantage point onboard a passing ship could not be more spectacular.
