Midnight Sun Tour to the Arctic
8 days around Kangerlussuaq and Ilulissat
Get close to the Greenland Ice Sheet and the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Ilulissat Ice Fjord, famous for its enormous icebergs. Experience all of it in the magical glow of the midnight sun. This is our summer bestseller in an ‘budget-friendly’ version with accommodation in guesthouses with your own cooking facilities.
A tour to Greenland is an experience entirely on nature’s terms and, on this eight-day visit, you will get up close and personal with Arctic nature. The Greenland Ice Sheet and glaciers in Kangerlussuaq as well as ice and even more ice in Ilulissat is 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 the summer months where bright sunlight can suddenly be replaced by a foggy mist. Seemingly barren mountains surprises with hints of green and icebergs dazzle in shades ranging from pale opaque to turquoise. Deserted, pristine areas right next to towns with characteristically brightly colored houses. The light is also unique – especially with the midnight sun’s soft glow around the clock. All in all; prepare yourself to be overcome by the forces of nature!
This tour is a bestseller that we have arranged for many years with great success. Usually, the accommodation has been at a hotel and a lodge. However, on this tour, you are accommodated at Old Camp and Petrine’s House. Both places offer kitchen facilities so you can prepare your own meals.
