Greenlandic Summer – an explosion of lights

The tour starts in June, July or August, the absolute summertime in Greenland, where the sun reigns over the days. This means that you get many hours of daylight to use for your very own experiences – with an abundance of nature to create an unforgettable holiday full of great impressions!
