Ilulissat for 2 Days – West Greenland Holiday

Enjoy a once in a lifetime trip to Greenland where you visit the Ilulissat Icefjord. You will cruise around the giant icebergs on the fjord, which is located 250 kilometers north of the arctic circle. Ilulissat is an absolutely stunning travel destination and easily reachable from Iceland. The name of the town Ilulissat means: “icebergs” in Kalaallisut, which is the native language of the Inuit. Once you see the views of the town, you will understand why – on the water you will see a plethora of gigantic icebergs that have broken off the vast Sermeq Kujalleq glacier. In 2004, the Icefjord was declared a UNESCO world heritage site because of its uniqueness and unparalleled beauty. For an unforgettable experience in the Arctic, we recommend combining this two day Greenland holiday with one of our Iceland tours, such as the express Iceland in 8 days self-drive package.

We recommend booking a Greenland tour as early as possible as availability is limited and prices for flights normally rise during the year. Please note that the flights to/from Greenland are the most expensive part of this tour package. You can also add extra nights in Ilulissat to make the most out of your Greenland holiday.
