West Greenland

Travel Code: GR001

Reykjavik or Copenhagen-Kangerlussuaq-Illulissat

 

6 days/5 nights | Recommended Itinerary

This exciting tour is a perfect combination of two of the most interesting destinations in West Greeland. Ilulissat, the town filled with magnificent icebergs and Kangerlussuaq, an area filled with abundant arctic wildlife and lots of sunshine lying near the coast. With lots of day excursions you will marvel at this very remote but fascinating country.

 

Day 1 Reykjavik or Copenhagen-Kangerlussuaq

Depart on your morning flight to Kangerlussuaq. Upon arrival you will be met at the airport in order to check in at your hotel located right in the terminal. After you check in and freshen up meet your guide and begin exploring the nature around Kangerlussuaq. Make sure you buckle in as you make your way through the desert, valleys, and over mountains in a 4 wheel drive vehicle. You will have numerous photo opportunities as the day progresses, so make sure to bring your camera! Before heading back to the hotel make a stop at the amazing Russell Glacier. Here you may get a chance to see a piece of the iceberg fall into the river below. We hope to see the Muskox, white Arctic Fox and more.

Accommodations: Hotel Kangerlussuaq

 

 

Day 2   Kangerlussuaq-Ilulissat

 After breakfast check in for your air Greenland flight to Ilulissat. Arrive in Ilulissat, north of the Polar Circle, and meet your transfer to the hotel. After you check in meet up with your city walking tour. Learn about the Danish trading station as well as the fishing harbor, and even the “old town” of the city. Lunch is included at a local restaurant.

 Accommodations: Hotel Arctic

Day 3  Ilulissat

Today a visit to Rodebay, a settlement of only 40 people will give you a chance to step            back in time and experience their history and culture. After your walking tour, head back to the boat and continue your journey towards Ilulissat.

Accommodations: Hotel Arctic

 

Day 4  Ilulissat

Your excursions continue today with a tour to Sermermiut. The bus drives you to the "end of the road" and then you walk the rest along the Ilulissat Ice Fjord- a site on the UNESCO list. Once you get to Sermermiut experience the history and culture of the Eskimos-you can still see traces of 3 old Eskimo cultures.

Accommodations:  Hotel Arctic

 

Day 5  Ilulissat

Your trip to Greenland would not be complete with out a Whale Watching trip.  Meet your group as you head out in to the Disko Bay.  The summer is a great time to see Humback whales because they feed on capelin, a small herring like fish! Bring your camera as you take your chance at an up-close shot of the fascinating whales.

Accommodations: Hotel Arctic

 

Day 6 - Ilulissat - Reykjavik or via Kangerlussuaq to Copenhagen

Enjoy your last breakfast in Ilulissat before meeting your transfer. Head to the airport to catch your flight to Reykjavik or Kangerlussuaq and connecting on to Copenhagen, have a safe flight!
