I7RKV: Towns of ice - Ilulissat and Kangerlussuaq / 7 days

This tour is a combines two of the most fascinating destinations in West Greenland. Ilulissat, the town of the Icebergs and the wildlife area of Kangerlussuaq. It is a superb way to get a real feel of life in the Arctic.

Ilulissat

Explore the modern Greenlandic town north of the Polar Circle and experience the unique Disko Bay:

Majestic icebergs are situated in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ilulissat Ice Fjord right outside the town and can be experienced at close range on our Midnight Cruises or during full day excursions where we cruise close to the impressive glacier of Eqip.

On other excursions we sail to small and remote settlements, where the Greenlandic population still live much according to ancient traditions.

Kangerlussuaq

Kangerlussuaq is not only an airport and gateway into Greenland, the area has much to offer travellers:

It is the best area in Greenland to see Arctic wildlife - close to the hotel you often see reindeer and musk oxen!

No other destination in Greenland offers easier access to the Inland Ice Cap - here we drive in 4x4 vehicles directly to the amazing Ice Cap.

The location approx. 160km inland from the coast makes Kangerlussuaq one of the most weather stable destinations in Greenland with lots of sunshine.
