White Christmas in the Land of Icebergs
Christmas in Greenland is a uniquely beautiful and peaceful experience and, on top of that, it’s covered in white. You can relax and reload your batteries, but also experience the magic of Christmas with the traditional, orange, Greenlandic Christmas stars, the northern lights, dog sledding, and some nice walks and hikes.
You can plan your own Greenland vacation, or you can purchase our excursion package. We have collected six incomparable experiences for you in this package, including a boat trip to the huge icebergs at the mouth of the llulissat lce Fjord, a ride on a dog sled, and hiking.
Christmas Eve in Greenland
On December 24th, the restaurant at Hotel lcefiord will serve a traditional Scandinavian Christmas Eve dinner with pork and duck. Greenlanders, like Scandinavians and the Germans, celebrate Christmas on the 24th and not on December 25th.
The icebergs beneath the northern lights
Everyone is fond of the Icefjord and the northern lights. It may seem that we are flaunting, but we have never met anyone who has not been impressed by both. When you go outside on a frosty evening and watch the amazing northern lights move across the sky with the big icebergs bathed in the night light, you will be close to tears from the beauty.
Winter in Greenland in December
On this trip, you will get a unique chance to go above the Arctic Circle during the Polar Night. The Polar Night is the opposite of its famous "sister", the Midnight Sun. During the Polar Night, the sun does not rise above the horizon. However, your days will not be pitch black, of course. In the middle of the day, you will get a dusk-like light in the sky. Inside the town, the streets are also lit and there is an orange glow from the many Christmas stars displayed in the windows of the homes of the Greenlanders.
Books and games
You will get a lot of outdoor experiences on this trip, but there will also be a lot of time to relax. Bring the books that you didn't get to read this year, yourt crosswords and possibly some easily transportable games. There might be some of your co-travelers who are up for a fun game of cards or checkers.

"Now we have traveled with Greenland Travel twice, and both times we chose a package tour with excursions booked in advance. It works perfectly. It can only be recommended!"L. Hansen, 2016, on Trustpilot
