Kulusuk is situated on an island overlooking the Apusiaajik Glacier. Here, colossal icebergs are produced which slowly move towards the open sea. The small settlement is an excellent introduction to the way of life in a settlement in Greenland and the icebergs that surround the city are simply wonderful. In the morning you will take an easy flight that takes less than two hours from Reykjavík, to Kulusuk on Greenland’s beautiful East Coast. Upon arrival in Kulusuk your guide will welcome you at the airport. He/she will take you on a tour of the village and if the weather permits you will watch an ancient drum dance show.
