Join us on one of our most diverse and wonderful tours to Greenland, where domestic flights and the coastal ship will take you a journey of discovery. Experience the most popular sites and towns of Greenland on this tour; the Greenland Ice Sheet in Kangerlussuaq, the capital of Nuuk and, of course, Ilulissat in the Disko Bay area by the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the world-famous Ilulissat Ice Fjord.

Greenlandic Summer – an explosion of lights

The tour departs in June, July or August, at the height of summer in Greenland, where the sun reigns and darkness at night has been banished. This means that you get many hours of daylight to explore as you wish – with an abundance of nature to create an unforgettable holiday full of great impressions!

We have created an itinerary which allows you to have time on your own to discover and explore. The tour guide will always present you with information, stories, guided tours, and practical help.
