The classic: The Golden Triangle

On the journey you will have the opportunity to experience:

Whalesafari
Ice Sheet
Culture
Icebergs

The Classic Golden Triangle tour of West Greenland. This is one of our all-time bestsellers and a very classic tour to three places in West Greenland: Kangerlussuaq, Sisimiut, and Ilulissat. The 8-day trip includes a coastal vessel cruise. You experience a lot of the must-see sights of Greenland.

You will cross the Arctic Circle. You get to encounter musk oxen. You will visit the Ice Sheet near Kangerlussuaq and see Sisimiut’s beautiful houses that appear as small colored spots in the rocky landscape. Let the spectacular Ilulissat Ice Fjord in Ilulissat take your breath away with its myriads of ice – ranging from small cubes to gigantic chunks in various colors, depending on the reflecting sunlight.

Get ready to be impressed as the wow factor is incredibly high.

Getting from one destination to the next will happen by plane as well as the coastal vessel. This offers a unique chance for you to get an impression of the vastness of the world’s largest island. The distance from the north to the south of the island corresponds to the distance from Scotland to the Sahara!

The trip is available from June to August, which is Greenlandic summer at its best, with midnight sun and contrasting impressions: Green mountains and white icebergs. Stark sunlight and misty fog. Soft flower valleys and cool glaciers. Rocks that cut through vast desolate spaces. Temperatures are mild and Greenland’s national flower, niviarsiaq, bluebells and mountain-batten dress the mountains in beautiful colors.
