Express tour: 2 highlights of Greenland in 4 days
This 4-day trip is a wonderful way to explore Greenland. You will see Ilulissat with its world-famous icefjord, the capital of Nuuk and the enormous whales of Greenland.
UNESCO site Ilulissat Icefjord
Your first stop on the tour is magnificent Ilulissat with its UNESCO World Heritage Site, the icefjord. You may have been to other UNESCO sites, but few places will move you as much as the Ilulissat Icefjord.
At the mouth of the fjord, the immense icebergs are grounded on a sand bank. Here, they wait for a big wave from the calving of the glacier 45 kilometers deep in the fjord to push them along. However, around them, ebb and flood make the smaller ice floes move move incessantly.
On the next day you have the chance to go on a whale safari before moving on to the capital of Nuuk.
Colourful Nuuk, the Greenland capital
Next stop takes you further south to Nuuk, one of the world’s smallest capitals. However, small does not mean boring and you will have ample of opportunities to have fun and be awed in Nuuk. After arrival, we will set you up at the best hotel in Nuuk and there is a welcome meeting.
On the next morning, you can go on a tour of town which includes the museum with the incredible mummies of Qilakitsoq.
Catch your own dinner - Fish'n'dish!
This round trip can be followed by an excursion by boat into the Nuuk Fjord system, the second largest of its kind in the world. Here we will catch our own dinner which later will be served for you at one of the best restaurants in the area. We then return to Nuuk and, if you’re up for it, try to sample the night life of an Arctic capital.
This tour is one of several express tours that we have specifically made for people who do not have a lot of time to explore Greenland but still want to see the essentials. See also Tour 5024.
