I5RKV: Towns of Ice; Ilulissat & Kangerlussuaq / 5 days
Departures from Reykjavik

This tour 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 of life in the Arctic.

Ilulissat

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

Calving glaciers and gigantic icebergs: 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 calving glacier of Eqip.

Isolated Settlements: On other excursions we sail to small and remote settlements, where the Greenlandic hunters 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.

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

The Inland Ice Cap: 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.

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