Hurtigruten Expeditions (HX) has announced it is partnering with Air Greenland, marking the first time an expedition cruise company has invested in such a partnership.

From 2025, HX will fly guests directly into Greenland’s capital, Nuuk, debuting three new “Grand Greenland” itineraries aboard the hybrid-battery-powered MS Fridtjof Nansen.

“Greenland’s breathtaking landscapes and resilient people inspire us daily at HX,” said HX CEO Daniel Skjeldam. “We are committed to contributing to Greenland’s sustainable growth and development.”

The voyages will spend more time on the destination’s west coast and explore further north than ever before, including a voyage to Thule and Kane Basin, exploring the northern limit of the world.

Guests will benefit from flying on Air Greenland planes, which offer favourable departure and arrival times from convenient hubs, including Copenhagen.

Additionally, as part of the collaboration, travellers with HX will have the opportunity to enjoy brand-new pre- and post-cruise programs.

These offerings include stays at waterfront lodges in Ilimanaq, which provide stunning views of towering icebergs, as well as unique local activities, such as fishing trips in Nuuk, offering an authentic taste of Greenlandic culture.

“We are honoured to partner with Air Greenland in a way that upholds fairness and promotes sustainability, with the aim of setting a new standard for community-focused tourism,” Skjeldam added. “Our mission is to ensure our guests leave with a deep appreciation and love for Greenland.”
