Many Greenlandic towns are beautifully situated in immense nature, but only few places can rival the arctic world that unfolds around the little town of Tasiilaq. Located on the banks of the King Oscar Harbour and encircled by tall, steep snow-clad peaks, the surroundings alone make this town worth a visit. You experience icebergs, glaciers, sled dogs, whale hunters, picturesque little wooden houses, first-rate crafts and several small, energetic settlements, which are all worth a visit.
Tasiilaq is the largest town in East Greenland with about 2,000 inhabitants. The town has a beautiful and picturesque setting in a fjord surrounded by high mountains. As it is only just over a century since the area was discovered by the Europeans, the traditional Inuit culture still plays an important role in day-to-day life. In the summer activities include hiking and helicopter trips to the ice sheet or glaciers. Sea kayaking and sailing on the fjords between the icebergs, whale safaris and angling are all popular activities.
Discover the breathtaking arctic landscape of East Greenland at first hand. Stay one night in the town of Tasiilaq and one night on Kulusuk island, surrounded by high mountains. Discover the Inuits way of life, a society that still depends on seal hunting and hunting. When you visit East Greenland, you travel of the world's most remote region, a place of astonishing natural beautify and pure untouched wilderness.
East Greenland is one of nature’s last remaining unspoilt regions on the planet. The first Europeans did not set foot in East Greenland until just over one hundred years ago, and this distinction from the rest of the country can clearly be seen in the region’s language and culture. In addition, inspiration from the traditional culture’s myths and legends is vividly expressed in East Greenland’s beautiful and highly sought after arts and crafts. If you are an explorer by heart - this is your kind of tour!
Voyage to places where most people have never been and considered the most authenic region of Greenland. Locked in by pack ice for most of the year, East Greenland is one of the last frontiers of the modern world. This tour is ideal for travellers with a taste of traditional Greenland and for those with a sense of adventure, still only a 2-hour flight away from Iceland.
