  • Tour Description

    Highlights of the Tour

    • Full day boat excursion to an impressive glacier or beautiful icefjord
    • Guided sightseeing in a charming Inuit village/town
    • Helicopter flights over ice-filled fjords

    A two hour flight from Iceland and a 10 minute helicopter-ride over the ice-filled fjord will take you to a world you could never imagine. Our Iceberg Spectacle include a guided sightseeing tour in the charming Inuit village of Kulusuk or Tasiiaq - the main town of East Greenland. You will get a change to explore the small colorful houses and smile back at the smiling population. When in Tasiilaq, there is lots to take in in this picturesque urban arctic town with a population of around 2000 people, and you will have a change to do so.

    The actual iceberg spectacle takes place on day 2. This full day boat excursion will take you on an amazing adventure either to the well known Knud Rasmussen Glacier or to the magnificent Sermilik Icefjord (depending on weekday) - both breathtaking and memorable experiences!

    Included: Flights to/from Reykjavik and Kulusuk, helicopter flights between Kulusuk - Tasiilaq, full day boat excursion (7-8 hours), guided sightseeing in either Kulusuk or Tasiilaq, accommodation in a guesthouse or hotel in double occupancy.

  • Tour Itinerary

    Day 1
    After a two hour flight from Reykjavik you arrive to Kulusuk. Shortly after you will go for a 10 minute helicopter flight over the ice-filled fjord to Tasiilaq - the main town in the region with a population of around 2000 - where you spend the night. After you have settled in at your accommodation the next thing on the program is the city walk of Tasiilaq and the flower valley!

    The city walk will take us to a workshop where local artists make beautiful and renowned handicraft. Then towards the harbor and visit the museum, which is the old church built in 1903. The museum has many historical treasures, and you can learn about the life and history of East Greenland.

    The walk continues along the shore to the hospital and up to the new church. Above the church, you will enjoy a beautiful view over the town. In this area, you will be able to see the oldest houses of the town where the first colony manager Johann Pedersen or the polar explorer Ejnar Mikkelsen lived.

    Before heading to the Flower Valley, you can visit the tourist office Skæven where it is possible to buy handicraft of all kinds, maps, etc. As the name of the valley indicates, you will be able to see many different flowers, such as arctic thyme, arctic bluebell, arctic dandelion, the national flower broad-leafed willow herb, and many more.

    We continue the small curved path along the river for a few kilometers, until we reach a small waterfall. Here we will spend some time to enjoy the beautiful landscape and peacefulness, before heading back to Tasiilaq. 

    Note: It is an easy walk through town, but we recommend sturdy shoes for the walk in the Flower Valley. We recommend you to bring some refreshments with you.


    Day 2
    After a good nights sleep and breakfast an exiting day of adventure awaits you. In the harbour you will meet the guide for the boat excursion who will take you on a full day adventure (7-8 hours) to either the well-known Knud Rasmussen glacier or the magnificent Sermilik Icefjord - which of the tours you will be joining depends on the weekday you are there, but both excursions are amazing, so no need to worry about that at all.

    Same accommodation as the night before.

    Day 3
    In the morning you take the helicopter back to Kulusuk from where you board the flight back to Reykjavik!
