Greenland getaway from Iceland

On the journey you will have the opportunity to experience:

Whalesafari
Icebergs
Culture

Greenland is one of the premier destinations for people dreaming of a trip to the Arctic. Experiences include untouched wilderness and exciting traditional Inuit culture. It is a unique and inspiring destination for mind-blowing adventures – more vast and diverse than you can ever imagine.

This tour has many highlights:

Midnight sun, authentic Inuit culture, the amazing abundance of wildlife – humpback whales, reindeer, musk oxen – colorful houses in hilly terrains, an endless horizon, majestic icebergs, the impressive Greenland Ice Sheet, full of mystery, and huge mountainous areas. To sum it all up: A world of its own.

Located on the west coast of Greenland – 300 kilometers north of the Arctic Circle – the famous UNESCO World Heritage Site Ilulissat Ice Fjord is filled with icebergs from the glacier, which is the most productive glacier in the northern hemisphere.

The town of Ilulissat is an exciting mix of Inuit culture, modern life, and 2,500 sled dogs, all blessed by the magical light of the midnight sun during summer.

Are you looking for your Arctic dream to come true, you should combine a visit to Iceland with a getaway to Ilulissat. But beware – you might want to come back here!

Whale breaking the waters surface near Ilimanaq in Greenland

Whale Safari in the Diskobay

It is a great experience to get real close to large animals like whales. The whales swim in the entire Disco Bay during the summer. Sometimes they are close to town, sometimes they are in the Ice Fjord and sometimes up north. The fishermen and the hunters are our sources of information about the whales and their whereabouts, so we almost always find them.

•  Information about whales
