Greenland Capital Nuuk and Ilulissat Icefjord

On the journey you will have the opportunity to experience:

Whalesafari
Icebergs
Culture

Get ready for an intense Greenland adventure! This tour is a great option for you with limited time available but with a keen interest in the cultural and natural highlights of Greenland. This tour combines urban living, Inuit culture, local food, and breathtaking natural scenery; sail among the huge icebergs in Ilulissat Icefjord and fish in the Nuuk Fjord system. That is a lot of adventures in only five days!

In Nuuk, we are going to visit the national museum with its unique collections. We are also going to a fur workshop where they make the beautiful national costume. A visit to a local family can give you a feeling of what life is like in modern Greenland.

You can also venture out into the enormous Nuuk Fjord system, which is the second largest in the world. While out on the fjord, you will get the chance to catch the fish that will be served for you at one of the best restaurants in the area!

After a couple of wonderful days in Nuuk, you fly north to visit the world-famous Ilulissat Icefjord. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and you can explore its shore by foot and its mouth by boat. Here, you will be able to go sailing among the enormous icebergs under the midnight sun. You will also be able to explore the town and to go on a whale watching safari.
