  • Tour Itinerary

    Day 1 Reykjavik – Kulusuk
    Start the day with a flight to Kulusuk and arrive in Greenland at the same hour as you leave Iceland: two hours flight and two hours’ time difference! The first truly Greenlandic experience awaits you: Upon arrival in Kulusuk, your guide will welcome you at the airport and the hotel will pick up your luggage. Your guide will introduce you to the area as you walk together towards Kulusuk village. On the way, you will visit the colorful and characteristic graveyard, and from viewpoints, we will see stunning icebergs and mountain peaks. Arriving at the village, we will visit the tiny privately owned 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 to the hotel (boat tour optional), we will visit the beautiful Kulusuk Church.

    Accommodation in hotel (half board optional).

    Day 2 Kulusuk – Reykjavik
    Today, you have some time to go exploring this mystically rocky island on your own before your flight takes off to Reykjavik. Get a closer look at the village, buy some souvenirs that can remind you of this Greenland experience or go for a short hike in the beautiful surroundings of Kulusuk.

    Optional activity: We can add a boattrip, a scenic drive to WW2 remains or even a helicopterride, an unforgettable tour over the spectacular icefjords and the impressive glaciers in the area or even to the Greenland Ice Cap. Experiencing the vast backcountry of Greenland really puts things into perspective!
