Only a two-hour flight from Reykjavik will take us to Greenland’s beautiful East Coast, home of the Ammassalik Inuit. Kulusuk is the gateway to East Greenland and the small settlement is an excellent introduction to the way of life in a settlement in the Ammassalik area.
Kulusuk lies on a small rocky island between saw-toothed mountains and extensive fjords, and it is almost always surrounded by icebergs and a glittering Arctic Ocean. In Kulusuk you will find some of the east coast’s most skillful craftsmen, whose tupilaks are of exceptional quality.
The beauty of the country’s natural wilderness, combined with the Inuit cultural experience, may very well mean that your visit to Greenland will rank as one of your most cherished memories. Our guides will escort us on a 45-60 minutes walk from the airport to the engaging village Kulusuk where we can stroll about and meet some of the 360 local residents and view their quality crafts.
The price is EUR 720 per person
Please note that flight supplement might apply depending on flight availability.
Optional excursions: Boat trip sailing between icebergs over the the mountainous Apusiaajjk Island to see where a glacier comes flowing from the island into sea. Booked & payed on the spot (weather permitting).

Guided Tour in Kulusuk:
The tour guide is awaiting you at Kulusuk airport. Tours are guided in English only. It is a 45-60 minutes (3 km/1.86 miles) walk from the airport to Kulusuk village. No transportation is available. Therefore you must be reasonably fit to master the walk partly through snow and difficult terrain. We highly recommend to bring good walking shoes along and a day bag with something to drink (can be bought in the duty free store at Reykjavik airport after you pass security check) and a picnic lunch or snacks. It is not always possible to buy food & beverage at the local supermarket in Kulusuk. You stay about 4 hours in Kulusuk.
Arriving at the village, we will visit the tiny museum that provides insights of the Inuit life. As we walk through town, we often get to greet the locals, and if we are lucky, we will get to see a demonstration of the traditional Greenlandic drum dance. Before we head back to the airport (boat tour optional), we will visit the beautiful Kulusuk Church.
Note: We recommend that all travelers wear good walking boots as this tour requires around 6 km/3,7 miles round-trip walk. June particularly can be wet. Please be aware to bring Danish currency, as it is not possible to use a debit card in Kulusuk. Passport is required when traveling to Greenland.
Important: Trips to Greenland are always subject to weather conditions. Delays and flight cancellations can happen. Therefore we strongly recommend you to buy a travel insurance in the country of residence that would cover any additional travel expenses, should your flights be delayed or cancelled due to weather. We recommend not to book any international flight directly after a trip from Greenland.
