Day by day & Tour Map

Day 1-Arrival Day, City Tour & Northern Lights

As your Air Iceland Connect flight lands in Nuuk Airport, your 3-day break in Nuuk begins! Upon your arrival, the local guide will greet you at the airport and accompany you to the hotel. After check-in, a local guide will take you on a guided city tour.

The 2-hour city tour of Nuuk shows you the colourful capital in a nutshell. The National Museum with the famous Qilakitsoq mummies (if time allows), the Saviour’s church and the busy Atlantic harbour are some of the stops on the tour, which will help you get your bearings for the rest of your stay.

After the city tour, we recommend you join our Chasing northern lights by boat tour. As we sail into the fjord, you will feel the fresh sea wind gently blowing whilst darkness slowly envelopes you as we leave Nuuk behind. The scene is set for Mother Nature’s art show – the Northern Lights! You may have seen northern lights in other parts of the world but enjoying it on a boat is a truly atmospheric experience. Pick up and drop off at the hotel included.

When you get back to the hotel, a 2-course dinner is served to celebrate your arrival.

Optional Activities Chasing Northern Lights by Boat – 2 hours, Difficulty 1

Day 2-Boat Tours & Helicopter Tours

Colourful Nuuk is full of surprises. Today, you can explore the history and nature of this city on your own, or you can join us to view Nuuk from different perspectives – from the sea and from the sky.

You have a choice between two fjord cruises. The Fjord Safari by boat, will take you on a gentle cruise in the second largest fjord in the world. During this journey, we will pass the majestic waterfall by Sermitsiaq. The colourful houses dotted along the shore will provide excellent photo opportunities, and, if we are lucky, maybe whales and seals will make an appearance!

Another option is to join our fishing tour by boat. Greenland enjoys a rich variety of fish species, and this tour may well provide you with fresh fish! The specific area of fishing will be decided by the captain on the day, but regardless of the chosen fishing grounds, you can be sure of fascinating views during the journey.

If you have your heart set on something more adventurous, may we recommend a helicopter tour which gives you a bird’s view of the Arctic region you are visiting! Join the 20 min tour of Nuuk from Above during the day or in the afternoon twilight. You will be amazed by the juxtaposition of a modern city nestled in the rugged Greenlandic nature.

Transfers are included in all the optional activities. Are you ready to make this day exceptional?

Optional Activities Fjord Safari by Boat – 4 hours, Difficulty 2 Fishing tour by Boat – 4 hours, Difficulty 2 Nuuk from above by Helicopter – 20 min, Difficulty 1 Twilight View of Nuuk by Helicopter – 20 min, Difficulty 1

Day 3-Departure day, Kaffemik & Snowshoe Hiking

Today is the last day in Nuuk, but before the tour guide accompanies you to the airport in the afternoon, why not use of the morning for some final exploring? You can either walk around the city on your own or join one of our optional excursions.

Kaffemik is the perfect chance to experience local life in Nuuk. Over a cup of coffee and a piece of cake, the locals will welcome you like a friend, tell you about their culture, traditions and maybe share a few family stories. If you want to stretch your legs and be active, Quassussuaq Snowshoe Hiking is a good choice. Putting on snowshoes and armed with a few snacks, you will have the chance to conquer the iconic peak of Quassussuaq which towers over Nuuk. It is a yet another angle to see Nuuk from and the photo opportunities are great!
