DAY 1: Copenhagen - Kangerlussuaq, welcome meeting, sightseeing
You fly from Copenhagen to Kangerlussuaq with Air Greenland, giving you 4 hours to prepare for your Greenland adventure. As the aircraft approaches Greenland, the sight of Nunataks and the enormous icy desert indicate what you have in store.
Kangerlussuaq welcomes you with a blast of fresh coldness. A guide from our local tour office World of Greenland - Arctic Circle will meet you upon arrival and help you to check in at the cozy and newly renovated Polar Lodge, located less than 100 meters from the airport complex with the stunning scenery right on your doorstep - including the steep Mt. Hassel.
After check-in, the guide arranges an information meeting where you will get further information about the exciting Kangerlussuaq area and its many excursion options.
