Come experience the true culture of the Greenlandic people in the land of the polar bears on this 3, 4 or 5 day tour from Reykjavik! Because of the geographical location of East Greenland, the villages of Kulusuk and Tasiilaq, also known as Ammassalik, have been relatively isolated in relation to the rest of Greenland and the world in general. Here a unique dialect is spoken and the original native “drum dance” is still performed. In fact the area was only “discovered” by Europeans a little over 100 years ago. The savage mountains, spectacular icebergs and picturesque villages will amaze even the most experienced travelers. This trip is a must for those looking for something new!
Reykjavik domestic airport
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 only a 10-minute helicopter ride from Kulusuk, but this short flight is one of the most scenic expeditions imaginable as you cross the ice-filled sea separating these two mountainous islands. The town of Tasiilaq lies just south of the Arctic Circle and boasts long hours of daylight in the summer and the splendor of the northern lights in the winter. During the summer, activities include hiking and climbing for people of all abilities, as well as helicopter trips to the ice sheet or glaciers. Sea kayaking and sailing on the fjord between icebergs, whale safaris and angling are all popular activities.
New: Optional Exploration Package including 2 tours
For Tasilaq 4/5 days tour only.
Day 2 & 3: Iceberg cruise (2 hours) and hike valley of the flowers (1,5 hours)
Note: depending on flight schedule and weather, some of the excursions might be operated on arrival and departure day in Greenland
Surcharge: EUR 120 / DKK 900 p.p. (needs to be booked in advance, latest 1 months prior tour start)
