This 4-day trip is a wonderful way to explore Greenland. You will see Ilulissat with its world-famous Ice Fjord, the capital of Nuuk and the enormous whales of Greenland.
UNESCO World Heritage Site Ilulissat Ice Fjord
Your first stop on the trip is magnificent Ilulissat with its UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Ilulissat Ice Fjord. You may have been to other UNESCO sites, but few places will move you as much as the Ilulissat Ice Fjord.
At the mouth of the fjord, the immense icebergs sit aground on a sandbank. Here, they wait for a big wave from the calving of the glacier 45 kilometers deep in the fjord to push them over the sandbank. However, around them, ebb and flood make the smaller ice floes move incessantly.
On the next day, you have the chance to go on a whale safari before moving on to the capital of Nuuk.
Colorful Nuuk, the Greenland capital
Next stop takes you south to Nuuk, one of the world’s smallest capitals. However, small does not mean boring, and you will have ample opportunity to have fun and be awed in Nuuk. After arrival, we will set you up at the best hotel in Nuuk, and there is a welcome meeting.
On the next morning, you can go on a tour of the town which includes the museum with the incredible mummies of Qilakitsoq.
Catch your own dinner: Fish’n’dish!
This round trip can be followed by an excursion by boat into the Nuuk Fjords, the second largest fjord system in the world. Here we will catch our dinner, which later will be served for you at one of the best restaurants in the area. We then return to Nuuk and, if you’re up for it, try to sample the nightlife of an Arctic capital.
This tour is one of several express tours that we have specifically made for people who do not have a lot of time to explore Greenland but still want to see the essentials. See also Tour 5024.
