Albatros Expeditions

The expedition will be hosted aboard Albatros Expeditions’ cutting-edge vessel, Ocean Albatros, featuring state-of-the-art amenities designed to elevate the overall travel experience.

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – Albatros Expeditions, renowned for its commitment to innovation and expertise in Greenland exploration, announce the launch of a unique and extraordinary expedition featuring a total solar eclipse in Greenland in 2026.

Scheduled to set sail on August 10, 2026, this exceptional voyage promises an immersive experience amidst the awe-inspiring landscapes of Greenland, combined with the rare spectacle of a total solar eclipse on August 12, 2026. Adding to the excitement, Albatros Expeditions has selected a strategic landing site precisely on the center line of the total eclipse, allowing observers to witness the spectacle as the moon completely obscures the Sun. Crimson prominence dance around the obsidian disk, and streamers of the solar corona extend far into space. This carefully chosen location is perfect for sun eclipse enthusiasts seeking the best perspective and photo opportunities, providing an unobstructed view from shore.

Hans Lagerweij, CEO of Albatros Expeditions, expressed his excitement about the upcoming departure, stating, “At Albatros Expeditions, we are dedicated to pushing the boundaries of exploration and setting new standards. As true Greenland experts and seasoned adventure travelers who live and breathe unique experiences in far-flung corners of the globe, we are thrilled for our guests to experience this once-in-a-lifetime natural phenomenon onboard our Ocean Albatros. Our meticulously designed expedition ships enhance every aspect of the journey, from the revolutionary X-bow to the hydraulic observation platforms, the abundance of balconies, jacuzzis, and panoramic saunas – we infuse elements of comfortable luxury into every detail.”

Albatros Expeditions Product Manager, Steffan Danino says: “This voyage offers a unique opportunity to witness one of Earth’s most incredible natural wonders while exploring everything the world’ largest island has to offer. From incredible Arctic nature, to jaw-dropping scenery and welcoming local Inuit culture, this voyage showcases the splendor and majesty of this incredible country.”

This 13-day solar eclipse departure offers a one-of-a-kind opportunity for travelers to witness the celestial phenomenon against the breathtaking backdrop of Greenland’s pristine landscapes while cruising from Reykjavík to Kangerlussuaq, following the same maritime course set by Norse settlers over a thousand years ago.
