Cape Hofmann Halvø

Bordered by huge dark mountains, Cape Hofmann Halvø (Peninsula) deep inside Scoresbysund, is a Greenlandic cruise must-visit for those seeking out spectacular Arctic landscapes.

Explore Cape Hofmann Halvø

A cruise into and around the Cape Hofmann Halvø area offers the chance to capture some photos of the usual Arctic wildlife suspect of the Scoresby Land region – the Arctic Hare. The nearby tundra is best known for being a Musk-Oxen spot, with groups of the hardy creatures calling the area home.

There are also birds aplenty, with notable populations of Great Northern Divers and Rock Ptarmigans.

Cape Hofmann Halvø’s landscapes are lovely at any time of the year, but become especially appealing during the fall months when riots of autumnal colours break out on shore to contrast beautifully with the surrounding dark mountains and the bright blue and white of passing ice bergs.

The fall months (especially right at the end of the cruise season) offer an extra enticement – the Aurora Borealis. As nights become longer your chances of seeing the Northern Lights dancing overhead increase.
