Skjoldungen Fjord, Greenland

Skjoldungen is a large uninhabited island just off Greenland’s southeast King Frederick VI Coast. The island is surrounded by a fjord twisting between high, glacier-polished walls of stone, with glaciers meeting the sea at intervals and waterfalls falling in lacy veils from above. The glaciers are punctuated by nunavaks of stone piercing the ice from below. Many of the peaks are permanently capped with snow. Your ship will thread this picturesque passage, as the Ventures by Seabourn team escorts guests on an optional cruise alongside the ship as it makes its way through the fjord. Whales are frequently seen in the fjord, and rays of sunlight light the walls and waters dramatically as the ship sails majestically between the cliffs and peaks.
