Ontario has a cruise that will take you to Greenland and Iceland for nearly 3 whole weeks

Who said you had to board a plane to get to Greenland or Iceland? If you want to bypass the airport to visit these places, there is a 19-day cruise you can take from Ontario that will get there for you.

Although Vantage Deluxe World Travel’s arctic adventure technically begins in Montreal, Ontarians can start their vacation earlier with the pre-trip supplement landing in Ottawa.

If you start your trip in the nation’s capital, you can stay at the iconic Fairmont Chateau Laurier and explore the Rideau Canal, which happens to be a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Next, you’ll cruise to Montreal to begin your aquatic adventure, where you can experience Old Montreal and views of the summit of Mount Royal before cruising the ocean explorer to eastern Canada.

You’ll have the opportunity to see more of the St. Lawrence River as you head towards Quebec City before heading to Woody Point on Bonne Bay in Newfoundland.

Then, for the next two days, you’ll be in open waters as the ship cruises along the Labrador Sea. You can get a massage in their onboard spa or take a dip in one of their hot tubs as you head to Nanortalik in Greenland for a day filled with adventure.

The boat will take you through Prince Christian Sound along the coast of Greenland as it heads towards Isortoq, which is one of the most remote places in the world with less than 100 people living there.

On Day 13, you’ll head to another secluded spot in Greenland known as Kulusuk Island, which has a ton of colorful houses nestled on green hills. Anyone who enjoys hiking can climb to the top of the 984-foot-high Isikajia Mountain to take in all the views of the small village and the fjords.

Next, the ship heads to Siglufjörður in Iceland, which is a fjord town known for its herring. Then, on day 16, you can discover the ancient glaciers of Ísafjörður and see the historic village of Thingeyri where you can watch a Viking musical.

The cruise ends in Reykjavík where you can eat Icelandic hot dogs (called pysla), experience the Golden Circle for breathtaking views, and drink the freshest Bloody Marys straight from a tomato farm.

This cruise is completely sold out for 2022, but the next two summers still have availability if you want to plan your trip well in advance.
