SFJ5CPH: Aurora and Polar circle / 5 days

Kangerlussuaq is a little-known paradise for Aurora Borealis enthusiasts. Due to the area’s geographical position the likelihood of seeing the mythical Northern Light is extremely high and during the day time there are plenty of things to do from Musk Ox safaris to driving in 4x4 vehicles to the Inland Ice Cap.

Revisiting the Ice Age

A visit to Kangerlussuaq is almost like time travelling - the visitor finds himself surrounded by a landscape similar to the ice age where prehistoric Musk Oxen are seen in front of the huge glaciers and the gigantic Inland Ice Cap which covers 85% of Greenland is never far away.

The location approx. 160km inland from the coast makes Kangerlussuaq one of the most weather stable destinations in Greenland - and with an often clear sky Kangerlussuaq is one of the best places in the world to experience Northern Light. During the last 10 winter seasons 99% of Arctic Adventure's clients who have stayed min. 4 nights in Kangerlussuaq have all experienced the amazing Aurora Borealis!

Splendid excursion possibilities

Kangerlussuaq is the best area in Greenland to spot Arctic wildlife. Close to the hotel you often see reindeer and musk oxen roam free!

No other destination in Greenland offers easier access to the Inland Ice Cap - here we drive by 4x4 vehicle directly to the ice!
