You can never get enough of the northern lights. Even the locals in Greenland rush outside when the beautiful light is dancing across the sky, though they can watch it as often as they want to in the wintertime. It is beautiful and breathtaking. On this tour, you can combine one of our popular round trips in Greenland with northern lights sightings.
We have put together a special trip where you can experience the northern lights here, there, and everywhere. We will take you to three of the most popular destinations in Greenland. Along the way, we will try flying with a propeller aircraft and sail for a few days with the coastal ship that sails along the west coast of Greenland. We will stay at centrally located hotels with nice views and enjoy delicious food prepared with delicious Greenlandic ingredients.
Three popular places in Greenland
In Ilulissat, you will experience the world-famous Ilulissat Ice Fjord, which is on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. In the capital of Nuuk, you get a taste of city life and Greenland’s cultural history. In Kangerlussuaq, you can walk on the Greenland Ice Sheet. As a bonus, you can also stroll through Greenland’s second-largest town, Sisimiut, when the coastal ship docks there. And, all along the way, we have the best conditions to experience the northern lights.
Northern lights on land and at sea in Greenland
The northern lights can be seen when there aren’t any clouds at night in a dark sky. Usually, there will be plenty of stars at the same time as they sparkle when you see them in the Arctic. The very special thing about this trip is that we will sail along the coast of Greenland where the only light for miles around will come from the ship itself. Therefore, it is very dark all around us in the evening and at night.
