Autumn feelings in Greenland

On the journey you will have the opportunity to experience:

Ice Sheet
Culture
Icebergs
Whalesafari

 

Group tour: 29-31 participants

This magnificent journey to Greenland offers you the unique combination of traveling by both domestic flight and coastal vessel along the west coast of Greenland as well as experiencing the most popular locations and towns in Greenland. All in the company of one of our knowledgable tour guides who will make sure you get as much as possible out of your trip. We have selected the best experiences for you to explore; the Greenland Ice Sheet in Kangerlussuaq, the quirky capital of Nuuk and not least Ilulissat in the Disko Bay area with the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the world-famous Ilulissat Ice Fjord.

AS we travel in the late summer, a season characterized by peace after a brief and hectic summer. Autumn also showcases a multitude of sides to Arctic nature; from beautiful sunny days, draping the mountains in shades of yellow-brown with an intensity that often surpasses the midnight sun of summer, to dramatic autumn storms, appealing with their harsh beauty but also requiring proper clothing.

As we travel further south, the nights become darker, and you might be fortunate enough to experience northern lights, a fascinating natural phenomenon. Also, the night sky is crammed with stars because Greenland is far less affected by light polution than in Europe, Asia or North America.

We have designed this journey to allow you to explore Greenland by yourself, but with the added benefit of our tour guide who will accompany you all the way, providing information, stories, guided tours, and practical help.
