New frontiers: 6 adventurous destinations to visit by superyacht

New frontiers: 6 adventurous destinations to visit by superyacht

6 of 6 6/6

Greenland , North Atlantic

Greenland is home to fjords, glaciers and the biggest icebergs in the northern hemisphere, but despite its beauty only the brave visit.

“Much of eastern Greenland is all but unexplored by private yachts,” says Lyons. “Scoresby Sound, for instance, is one of the largest fjord systems in the world but few yachts have ventured there.” In part that’s because of hard, multi-year ice that’s difficult to navigate except during a short period in late summer. “But for the yachts that are equipped to make such an expedition, the rewards are vast landscapes, icebergs and the protected wildlife of the Northeast Greenland National Park.”

What to do and see: The area near Ilulissat is home to some of the tallest icebergs on the planet, towering either side of yachts that cruise between them. “No two icebergs are alike,” says Camper & Nicholsons’ Alex Garro, charter manager of 77.4 metre explorer Legend. “When you see an iceberg for the first time, you may be seeing shapes and sizes that no one has seen before.”

When to visit: Work it into a summer cruising programme when the scenery looks even more spectacular under the midnight sun. You also have the best chance of spotting whales at this time. Greenland also has incredible heli-skiing. Head to Kangaamiut and take your pick from hundreds of glacial runs that drop into three fjords. If you prefer to get your adrenalin rush under water, there are several wreck dives.
