East Greenland: Wild Shores of the High Arctic on National Geographic Endurance
East Greenland: Wild Shores of the High Arctic
Leave the fast-paced, modern world behind
Greenland’s eastern coast is flanked by thousands of icebergs calved from the country’s massive ice sheet. Here, we venture into the largest national park in the world—Greenland National Park—to spot polar bears, musk oxen, arctic hare and more. In this remote Arctic paradise where animals outnumber humans, go hiking with naturalists on the vast tundra, glide in akayak through pristine fjords, and take in dramatic mountain views at every turn. We will also be on the lookout for the Northern Lights along Greenland and Iceland at this time of year.

The first new polar build in Lindblad’s 50-year history, National Geographic Endurance is named to honor explorer Ernest Shackleton and his legendary Transantarctic Expedition.
A fully-stabilized vessel of the highest ice class (PC5 Category A), she will enable adventurous guests to go where few have or can. Endurance’s most striking exterior feature is her distinctive profile, the patented X-Bow®, a game-changing design that guarantees the smoothest, most comfortable ride in all kinds of conditions; and since it eliminates bow impact, a quieter ride, as well. An equally impressive feature may well be her capacity: she carries just 126 guests, a commitment to expedition excellence over scale. Scandinavian-inflected, luxuriously appointed, her inviting interiors would be a destination in themselves. Because she is a Lindblad expedition ship, however, her attention is focused on the world outside—with acres of window glass to keep you connected to the stunning views beyond the pane, and a fleet of expedition tools to get you out exploring.
Lindblad Expeditions goes to the most amazing places on the planet—40+ geographies in all. And they’ve planted a flag in many of them, deeply committing to remote wild places—like South Georgia and the Falklands; Patagonia, where they opened up Staten Island, ‘the island at the end of the world,’ for eco-tourism; and remote and beautiful regions of Polynesia, including the Marquesas Islands where few go.
