Spring feelings in Greenland

On the journey you will have the opportunity to experience:

Ice Sheet
Icebergs
Culture

This special journey offers you a unique combination of traveling by both domestic flight and coasting vessel along the west coast of Greenland, as well as experiencing the most popular locations and towns in Greenland. A tour guide travels with you, and we have selected the best experiences; the Greenland Ice Sheet in Kangerlussuaq, the capital city of Nuuk and, not least, Ilulissat in the Disco Bay area at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the world-famous Ilulissat Ice Fjord.

Greenlandic spring with sunny nights

Traveling in May, you will experience spring in Greenland with temperatures that may not inspire you to wear short-sleeved T-shirts but will feel pleasantly fresh, due to the dry air. The midnight sun rules north of the Polar Circle from mid-May, causing long, sunny nights. A wonderful and unforgettable holiday full of great impressions – and natural attractions aplenty.

We have composed the journey in a way that allows you to explore Greenland by yourself, but the tour guide will be with you all the way, providing information, stories, guided tours, and practical help.
