Departures from Reykjavik.

The Grand tour of Greenland with time to experience:

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

Narsarsuaq

This tour includes a short stay in Narsarsuaq, the area where Eric the Red decided to settle and where he found inspiration to name the new land: Greenland. It has recently been awarded UNESCO World Heritage status.

Beside the viking history that dominates the area Narsarsuaq is also the only international airport of South Greenland with quite an amazing military history.

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.
