Arctic spring and golden sun

On the journey you will have the opportunity to experience:

Ice Sheet
Culture
Icebergs

Spring in Greenland is a very intense experience. From April to May, Greenland turns from Arctic winter to Arctic summer and the midnight sun turns nights into days. The snow is melting fast, days turn warmer, and a hectic summer begins.

If you are looking for a Greenland tour that combines spring, impressive nature and pioneering culture, this is the tour for you. If you also prefer a vacation that guarantees endless beautiful sceneries, you can be sure to get the full benefit from this tour.

We start in Kangerlussuaq, the gateway to Greenland. The hinterland has a fantastic nature where the huge Ice Sheet with its own life, sounds, and ice is impossible to ignore.

You then continue to the town of Ilulissat in the Disco Bay. Ilulissat means “icebergs” which need no further explanation once you see the beautiful Ice Fjord and the numerous icebergs, floating majestically into the fjord, with almost magical light and the reflections from the sun.

Hiking possibilities are great in both areas, and at this time of year, there are no mosquitoes. If winter has been tough and long, you might even be able to go on a dog sled tour. At this time of year, sailing in the fjord and bay is possible, and we especially recommend a sailing tour to the small settlements in Disco Bay and, of course, a tour among the huge icebergs.
