The Grand tour of Greenland with time to experience:

- Beautiful and fertile South Greenland
- The capital of Nuuk
- Ilulissat, town of Icebergs

Qaqortoq

Qaqortoq is the biggest town in South Greenland with a population of just over 3000. Situated near the big lake "Storesøen" with rising mountains as a backdrop, Qaqortoq is where many students come to study, and therefore the town is full of life for most of the year. This is also where FIFA has decided to sponsor the only grass covered soccer field in Greenland. Old colony houses show the history of the town, while new big modern houses rise up along the cliff wall, all with splendid views over the open sea. A real town of contrasts.

Nuuk

Nuuk is the northernmost as well as the smallest capital in the world – though still the largest and oldest city in Greenland with just over 16,000 inhabitants.

Nuuk has plenty to offer visitors: from high quality art and craft work, a shopping centre, to the Greenland National Museum which houses a wonderful collection of artifacts and exhibits related to Greenland's archaeology, history, art, and handicrafts, as well as the famous Qilakitsoq mummies. Not to be missed is the architectural marvel of Katuaq, the cultural centre of which the design was inspired by the waves of the northern lights, icebergs and the play of light on ice and snow.

Ilulissat

The town of Icebergs and the most modern town in the Disko Bay area – man is still outnumbered by the huskies, and traces of 4000-year old Inuit settlements are found close to town. Join us on tours to small and isolated settlements where the local population is still dependent on hunting and fishing - and don't miss the UNESCO designated Ilulissat Ice Fjord with its gigantic icebergs.
