I4CPH: West Greenland Explorer / 4 days
Departures from Copenhagen

NEW for 2019: Departures from Copenhagen. This tour showcases the majestic icebergs at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ilulissat Ice Fjord combined with wildlife second to none in Kangerlussuaq. Get a glimpse of life north of the Polar Circle where nature still plays an important role in everyday life and get introduced to old Inuit traditions.

This tour is combines two of the most fascinating destinations in West Greenland. Ilulissat, the town of icebergs and the wildlife area of Kangerlussuaq. It is a superb way to get a real feel for 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 old world" is alive and well, with the Greenlandic population still living 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!

It is the best destination in Greenland for accessing the Inland Ice Cap - here we drive in 4x4 vehicles directly to the amazing 'White World'.

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