This tour is a combination of two of the most interesting destinations in West Greenland. Ilulissat, the town of the Icebergs combined with the wildlife area of Kangerlussuaq. It is a short-cut to a greater understanding of the arctic.

Ilulissat

You will get familiar with a modern Greenlandic town north of the Polar Circle & experience the unique Disko Bay:

Calving Glaciers & Gigantic Icebergs: Majestic Icebergs are situated in the fiord right outside the town and are experienced at close range on our Midnight Cruises or during full day excursions where we cruise close to the impressive glacier of Eqip.

Isolated Settlements: On other excursions we sail to small and remote settlements, where "the old world" and the Greenlandic hunters are still to be experienced.

Helicopter Excursion: Over the UNESCO designated Ilulissat Ice Fiord & its gigantic icebergs to the Ilulissat Glacier.

Kangerlussuaq

Kangerlussuaq has proved not only to be an airport and a gateway into Greenland, the area actually has much to offer:

Greenland Wildlife: Kangerlussuaq is the best area in Greenland to spot Arctic wildlife - close to the hotel you often see reindeer and musk oxen!

The Inland Ice Cap: No other destination in Greenland offers this easy access to the Inland Ice Cap - here we drive by 4x4 vehicle directly to the amazing Ice Cap.

Fantastic weather: The location approx. 160km from the coast makes Kangerlussuaq one of the most weather stable destinations in Greenland with lots of sunshine.
