Wake of Eric the Red: Ocean Atlantic
In Disko Bay, experience local dancing in Qeqertarsuaq and the renowned Eqi Glacier. At the Sermermiut Plain admire the World Heritage Site of the Ilulissat Icefjord and the dazzling icebergs in the late evening sun. Further to the south along the western coast of Greenland, visit the capital of Greenland, one of the smallest in the world. Before heading north again along the spectacular east coast of Greenland, marvel at the narrow cliffs of Prince Christian Sound and the charming silence of the undisturbed Skjoldungen Island
Traveling by sea is a magnificent way to experience Greenland. The places most worth seeing are situated along the dramatic coast line: small and colourful houses situated on the steep mountains sides down to a fjord, giant glaciers producing enormous icebergs, whilst whales and seals play in the sea. And only a few minutes’ hike away you will find yourself totally isolated, surrounded by wilderness. The people of Greenland live along the coast in small towns and settlements – at summer only accessible from the sea. Their culture, architecture and living conditions are enriched and limited by the harsh nature of the Arctic. On our town visits, you will have opportunities to meet the hospitable Greenlanders and learn more about the Inuit culture.
Charter flight from Copenhagen to Kangerlussuaq included
An enriching experience of Nordic culture and Arctic nature!
