Greenland Nuuk

Greenland Nuuk

Day 1: Welcome to Nuuk
Upon arrival in Nuuk, you are welcomed by a local representative and transferred to the hotel where you will spend the next three nights. After settling in, take a relaxing stroll around the city centre and spend the evening at your leisure.

Day 2: History Culture in Nuuk
Get a feel for the local way of life with a guided tour around Nuuk, with highlights including the old colonial harbour, the famous Qilakitsoq mummies, Nuuk’s unique geology, the Greenlandic national costume, Qajak, and neo-Eskimo ruins. Then the afternoon is yours to embark on an exhilarating optional excursion such as hiking or a boat tour. Or just relax and enjoy the afternoon at the Katuaq cultural centre with a cup of coffee.

Day 3: Whales and Wildlife
The first half of the day is free to explore Nuuk as you wish, perhaps with some shopping or a visit to the local art museum. Then in the afternoon you will enjoy a whale-watching tour in the beautiful surroundings of Nuuk with stunning views of Mt. Sermitsiaq and the small islands around the capital. Besides humpback whales playing near the boat, this tour also gives you a good chance of seeing eagles, seals, and other sea-mammals.

Day 4: Icebergs under the Midnight Sun
You have a morning flight to Ilulissat, upon arrival, you will be transferred to your comfortable hotel where you will spend the next three nights. Once you’ve settled in, you can enjoy the rest of the afternoon as you wish. Later in the evening, you will set sail for a midnight cruise through the majestic Ilulissat Icefjord, which awes visitors with its maze of giant icebergs illuminated by the midnight sun.

Day 5 & 6: Freedom to Explore Ilulissat
For the next two days, the sky is the limit! You can choose from an array of exciting optional excursions in the Ilulissat area, all of which can be booked locally at your accommodation. Imagine sailing among icebergs illuminated by the midnight sun or other awe-inspiring optional experiences, including helicopter rides over immense icebergs, motorboat tours among giant pieces of calved ice from the Eqi glacier, cultural demonstrations and village walks, whale-watching safaris, or excursions to remote settlements in the area. For hiking enthusiasts, the tranquil Sermermiut Valley just a few kilometres from Ilulissat offers spectacular views from a number of marked trails.

Day 7: Goodbye Greenland
When the time has come to say farewell to this magnificent land, you will be transferred from your hotel to the airport in time for your departure flight. If your flight is in the afternoon, you can squeeze in some last-minute souvenir shopping or a short optional excursion in the morning.
