Winter days at the ice cap – explore winter in Greenland

On the journey you will have the opportunity to experience:

Ice Sheet
Northern lights

Enjoy and explore northern lights, dog sledding, and the Greenland Ice Sheet! Grab a few extra days off and jump on the plane to Kangerlussuaq in Greenland, only a 4½ hour flight from Copenhagen Airport in Denmark.

In the area around Kangerlussuaq, you will find a lot of amazing experiences: The puffy musk oxen, lots of sled dogs and the breath-taking mountains. Step onto the Greenland Ice Sheet, and look forward to seeing northern lights dance in the sky (on departures before April).

This is the perfect winter break!
