White Christmas in the Land of Icebergs

On the journey you will have the opportunity to experience:

Northern light
Icebergs
Dogsled
Culture

Christmas in Greenland is a uniquely beautiful and peaceful experience and, on top of that, it’s covered in white. You can relax and reload your batteries, but also experience the magic of Christmas with the traditional, orange, Greenlandic Christmas stars, the northern lights, dog sledding, and some nice walks and hikes.

Christmas Eve in Greenland

On December 24th, the restaurant at Hotel Arctic will serve a traditional Scandinavian Christmas Eve dinner with pork and duck. Greenlanders, like Scandinavians and the Germans, celebrate Christmas on the 24th and not on December 25th.

Winter in Greenland in December

On this trip, you will get a unique chance to go above the Arctic Circle during the Polar Night. The Polar Night is the opposite of its famous “sister,” the Midnight Sun. During the Polar Night, the sun does not rise above the horizon. However, your days will not be pitch black, of course. In the middle of the day, you will get a dusk-like light in the sky. Inside the town, the streets are also lit and there is an orange glow from the many Christmas stars displayed in the windows of the homes of the Greenlanders.

Books and games

You will get a lot of outdoor experiences on this trip, but there will also be a lot of time to relax. Bring the books that you didn’t get to read this year, your crosswords and possibly some easily transportable games. There might be some of your co-travelers who are up for a fun game of cards or checkers.

On snowshoes through the winter landscape

Price per person from
65 EUR

The winter landscape is covered by beautiful snow. However, this means, that it can be difficult to explore the UNESCO World Heritage area away from the paths. The markings at the longer hiking routes are often covered by snow. A local guide and snowshoes will make it easier for you, to go on a great walk.

On this snowshoe hike, you will start at the power plant and walk along the water. You will have time to take photos and enjoy the view of the Sermermiut Valley, the icebergs and the Disco Bay. The hike ends at the helikopter landing spot, where you get picked up. You don’t need experience using snowshoes. Everyone can learn to walk safely on snowshoes. You should be aware that this hike is of medium difficulty though.

•  Transfer from World of Greenland to the power plant
