Quark Expeditions announces new Greenland itinerary

SEATTLE — Quark Expeditions is heading to Greenland with a brand new, cutting-edge itinerary launching in 2024.

Constructed around the two twin-engine helicopters of its Ultramarine ship, the 11-day ‘Greenland Explorer: Sail and Soar the Alpine Arctic’ includes the most helicopter activities in Greenland, allowing guests to experience heli hiking, heli landing and much more. They’ll also set foot on the Greenland Ice sheet, known as the second largest body of ice in the world.

Other highlights include a visit to one of the most welcoming populations in South Greenland to learn about local cuisine, culture and agriculture. Plus, guests will participate in a one-of-a-kind culinary experience featuring local foods prepared by Greenlandic chefs during the ‘Tundra to Table: Inuit Culinary Experience.’

Those who book in September can also observe the natural phenomena known as the Aurora borealis, or Northern Lights. During the month of September, South Greenland enjoys an extended 4-8 hours of night, allowing for more time to observe the light spectacle.

Clients who book the itinerary now will receive 20% off, plus an additional 10% if they pay in full at the time of booking.

“Being able to develop this itinerary in full collaboration with local partners in Greenland ensures our guests can enjoy truly authentic experiences no one else can provide, such as Tundra to Table: Inuit Culinary Experience and Greenland Camping along the Tasermiut Fjord,” said Josh Weidman, Director of Product for Quark Expeditions. 

He added: “The other gems in this new itinerary are Ultramarine’s two twin-engine helicopters, which enable our expedition team to take guests to areas in South Greenland no one else can where they’ll choose from the most robust portfolio of off-ship adventures in the Arctic. It’s our long-standing partnerships with local Greenlanders, and our dedicated expedition team—the best in the industry—that makes us the experts in Greenland adventure.”
