A brief history about us
In the 1970s Peter Morell, President of Arctic Adventure, became a trailblazer for commercial tourism to Greenland. Identifying a clear lack of options for travellers who wished to explore this region, he decided to set up Arctic Adventure in the early 1980s. In 2016 Jens Christian Hildestad was appointed CEO of Arctic Adventure. This development has kick-started the next phase of our successful journey to increase knowledge of our destinations as well as consolidate our position as a first-class tour operator designing second-to-none itineraries. Today, Arctic Adventure is one of the experienced tour operators in the North Atlantic with a global network of selling agents and long-running partnerships in all three destinations. Our head office is in Copenhagen. You can also find our branches at Ilulissat and Narsaq.
Your Trusted Team
A professional, united and enthusiastic team is there to ensure your adventures in the Arctic. We are driven to provide our customers and clients with timely response, qualified service and
unforgettable fascinating trips.
Experienced travel consultants, itinerary designers, cruise director and customer service staffs are based at the head office in Copenhagen to offer well-designed travel products and high-end customised itineraries.
Our multi-lingual Arctic Adventure guides are in our office in Ilulissat and Narsaq looking forward to welcoming the customers and clients in Greenland during all seasons.
Like ourselves, they have a passion for the Arctic and possess rich knowledge about Greenlandic history, nature and culture. Trained entirely by ourselves, they are story-tellers, destination enthusiasts and knowledgeable travel companions.
For most of the multi-day tour packages, customers and clients will be well looked after since their arrival at the airport. Usually, there will be a welcome meeting and guided city walk. At the welcome meeting, your guests can buy excursions and ask any questions they may have.
At each destination, we have a Destination Coordinator who is in charge of the logistics at the destination and of course, in direct contact with the office in Copenhagen.
Our guide team speaks several languages, and at each destination, we do our very best to cover English, German and Spanish. On request, we can provide even more languages, e.g. French, Italian, Chinese, etc.
