This is our summer bestseller. Get close to the Greenland Ice Sheet and the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ilulissat Ice Fjord, famous for its enormous icebergs – and experience all of it in the magical glow of the midnight sun.
This is a unique opportunity to experience how life in the Arctic is lived almost entirely on nature’s terms, and on this eight-day visit, you will get up close and personal with nature.
Starting moments after arriving in Kangerlussuaq, you will travel to the Greenland Ice Sheet through a rugged tundra landscape, where wild musk oxen and reindeer roam freely.
Your first hours in Greenland, marveling at the vast landscape and breathing in the fresh Arctic air, is an impression you will never forget.
Our next stop and main base is Ilulissat, the home of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ilulissat Icefjord.
Situated far beyond the Polar Circle, Ilulissat is also the largest dog sledding district in Greenland, and during your stay in the town, you will both see and hear the more than 2500 dogs as they spend the summer relaxing and perhaps howling in unison a few times a day.
In Kangerlussuaq and Ilulissat, our knowledgeable local guides are ready to welcome you and ensure you have the best possible stay in our fantastic country.
On this tour, you can purchase an additional stay in Glacier Lodge Eqi, situated by the impressive Eqip Sermia Glacier, 80 kilometers north of Ilulissat. The lodge boasts undisturbed views of the entire glacier front – imagine sitting in the midnight sun and seeing the ice break off the glacier and start life as icebergs in the fjord!
The contrasts in Greenland are best experienced during the summer when bright sunlight can suddenly be replaced by a dense mist. Brown mountains with hints of green versus icebergs 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.
