Bestseller: Summer, sun and huge Icebergs in Greenland

On the journey you will have the opportunity to experience:

Whalesafari
Ice Sheet
Icebergs
Culture

This is our summer bestseller. Get close to the Greenland Ice Sheet, and the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ilulissat Ice Fjord, famous for its enormous icebergs – experience all of it in the magical glow of the midnight sun.

You will go on a great trip to Greenland, an experience entirely on nature’s terms and, on this eight-day visit, you will get up close and personal with nature. You will see the Greenland Ice Sheet and glaciers in Kangerlussuaq as well as ice and even more ice in Ilulissat, beautifully accompanied by Greenland’s unique culture and traditional lifestyle in contrast to the influence of the modern way of life.

The contrasts in Greenland are best experienced during summer months where bright sunlight can suddenly be replaced by a foggy mist. Brown mountains with hints of green versus icebergs in shades ranging from pale opaque to turquoise. Deserted, pristine areas right next to towns with the characteristically brightly colored houses. The light is also unique – especially with the midnight sun’s soft glow around the clock.

We offer another trip like this, which is based on more simple accommodation: See Trip 7031.
