GT-04 – East Greenland for 4 days

Day 1: Flight to Kulusuk and Helicopter Tour

The flight takes only 90 minutes and on a clear day you can see icebergs from above. A helicopter brings you from Kulusuk to Tasiilaq which is only 20 kilometers away. Have a look at your hotel and explore the charming town in the afternoon. We recommend to visit the Ammassalik Museum located in the town‘s old church. The museum has a collection of traditional artifacts ranging from Kayaks to wooden masks. Enjoy the colorful Greenlandic houses and have a look at the small harbor in the city center. Interesting is also a visit of the local supermarket. In the evening you will have a welcome dinner in the restaurant of your accommodation.

Plenty of different tours are available and our local partner will arrange everything for you based on your interests and also the weather. We highly recommend a boat tour to a glacier and you should also visit the floating ice in the Sermilik Fjord. Interesting is also a whale watching tour where you have the chance to see minke whales, humpback whales and fin whales. You can also go on hike and explore the surroundings of Tasiilaq on your own. Hiking maps are available at your accommodation and your local host will assist you with everything needed.

In the morning you can stroll for a last time around the city. Everywhere you will see the Greenland dogs which are so important for the locals especially during winter time. A boat brings you from Tasiilaq back to the airport in Kulusuk and you can enjoy once more the huge and impressive icebergs. Enjoy a hot dog in the airport (yes, Greenland belongs to Denmark), get a stamp in your passport and fly back to Reykjavik – hopefully with many unforgettable memories and some great photos.
