Culture

This is the perfect autumn weekend break! Enjoy and explore northern lights and the Greenland Ice Sheet! Grab a few extra days off and jump on the plane to Kangerlussuaq in Greenland – only a 4½-hour flight from Copenhagen Airport in Denmark.

In the area around Kangerlussuaq, you will find a lot of amazing experiences: The puffy musk oxen, one of the world’s longest fjords and the breathtaking mountains. Take a trip up on the Greenland Ice Sheet, and look forward to seeing the northern lights dance in the sky.

Today, Kangerlussuaq is Greenland’s most busy airport. The history of the settlement is interesting, beginning during World War II, through the cold war, and developing into a modern international airport.

Please be advised that the northern lights might not be visible in the sky until midt September. Therefore you should not be expecting to see it on the departures in the late summer months of this tour.

If you wish to see this tour with accommodation in a hotel, please see tour 9012.
