Greenland Yacht Charter Guide

Featuring the only permanent ice cap in the Northern Hemisphere, a luxury yacht charter to Greenland will have you mesmerized by the pure, natural beauty of this unique cruising ground.

A luxury yacht charter to Greenland promises one-in-a-lifetime experiences. You’ll have a front-row seat to admire the vast Arctic landscapes, rich wildlife and awe-inspiring fjords and glaciers. Not to mention the Midnight sun in the summer and Northern light in the winter! Perhaps you’ll spot members of Greenland’s wildlife, from fantastic Narwhals and Walrus to Arctic foxes, hares and lemmings.

Greenland’s remote, majestic terrain is the perfect destination for a unique luxury yacht charter. Take a break from the Caribbean and explore the world’s largest island’s exotic offerings. Positioned between the Arctic and Atlantic oceans, Greenland combines ice-y landscapes in the north and jagged mountains and green pastures in the south. The variety of geographical offerings will have you spending your days pondering your next excursion. Experiencing this Nordic country by private yacht charter ensures your holiday abounds with adventure and luxury.

The dramatic landscapes and seascapes that comprise Greenland can drastically differ in the summer and winter. You can expect Midnight sun in the summer, first appearing in the national park in the north of Greenland and later emerging in towns such as Qaanaaq, Upernavik and Uummannaq. In the winter, try to catch a Northern Lights tour in Kangerlussuaq, Sisimiut and Ilulissat to gaze and admire this stunning natural phenomenon. After a day of exploring, you can look forward to kicking back and enjoying the amenities your luxury yacht has to offer. Take to the sundeck Jacuzzi to soak in the warm water and simply admire the impressive glaciers or sprawl on the sunpads on a warm summer day.

For those yearning to step ashore and get a taste and feel of Greenland’s culture, head to the capital, Nuuk, and stroll the streets filled with charming, colorful houses and try some authentic Greenlandic cuisine. You can expect locals hiking, enjoying the fresh air, and biking along the coastal trails in the summer months. This is also a destination known for waterfalls, humpback whales and rich history.

After you’ve enjoyed some time ashore in the southern area of Greenland, step aboard your yacht and head north to visit the incredible Ilulissat Fjord, a UNESCO World Heritage Site home to the world’s most active glacier. This fjord is something you will not want to miss, as its scientific importance is just as strong as its natural beauty. Once you’ve had your fix, head to the nearby Uunartoq hot springs to soak in the warm waters with the isolated terrain as your backdrop.

You do not want to skip an opportunity for dog sledding at Disko Bay in the winter. This is the best and most traditional way to travel during the winter. In the summer, head to the Lyngmark glacier and try it in the evening, with the Midnight sun as your nightlight. However you decide to spend your time on a luxury yacht charter in Greenland, you cannot go wrong with simply lounging on the aft deck with your favorite cocktail, admiring the country’s natural beauty.
