Zoom in on Ice and Snow

Zoom in on Ice and Snow

On the journey you will have the opportunity to experience:

Ice Sheet
Icebergs
Dogsled
Northern Light

This is our winter bestseller. You will never forget the first time you breathe the crisp, frosty air the moment you step off the plane in Kangerlussuaq. It is a unique experience that is reinforced by the sight of the snow-covered rocky landscape – this is a new sensation, which will blow you away.

The ideal months for a winter vacation in Greenland are from late January to early May. The cold is inevitable at these latitudes. Temperatures range from approximately 5-30 degrees below zero Celcius, but because of the dry air, the coldness does not feel so penetrating. Another appealing feature of winter is the northern lights – lie down in the snow, listen to the silence, and enjoy the greenish hue of the northern lights.

Kangerlussuaq is the gateway to Greenland. The hinterland hides a fantastic nature where the vast Ice Sheet with its own life, sounds, and cold is impossible to ignore. If you are looking for a trip that combines winter, great nature, and culture, you have chosen the right one. And if you are also looking for a trip that provides you with an infinite amount of motifs to be captured by your camera, Ilulissat is guaranteed to give you full value for your money. Here are ample opportunity to focus on icebergs, the fascinating Ice Fjord, and thousands of sled dogs.
