Our destination

Upon arrival in Greenland, we are greeted with the stunning sight of Sondre Stromfjord – an airport that is not only used as an emergency diversion for transatlantic airliners, but also one of the most challenging approaches in our entire itinerary. Nestled at the end of a long fjord, this airport presents a significant challenge, as we carefully navigate our approach to avoid the high ground at either side of the fjord. To safely land, we must fly down the fjord “low and slow” and perform a visual approach onto the runway at the end. However, this approach is further complicated by the fjord’s circulating air currents that lead to almost constant moderate turbulence. Despite the challenges, Sondre Stromfjord offers a breathtakingly beautiful location that will leave us in awe.

Halifax, the capital of Nova Scotia, is a vibrant and historic city that offers something for everyone. Halifax is a must-visit destination for any traveller, known for its friendly people, rich culture, and stunning natural beauty.

One of the city’s most popular attractions is the Halifax Citadel National Historic Site, a fort that dates back to 1749 and provides breathtaking views of the city and harbour. The Halifax Waterfront is another must-see destination, featuring a lively boardwalk with shops, restaurants, and museums.

For those interested in maritime history, the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic is home to a fascinating collection of artefacts and exhibits related to the city’s seafaring past. And for nature lovers, Peggy’s Cove is a must-visit spot with its picturesque lighthouse and rugged coastline.
