Day 3                  Nuuk

 

Breakfast at Hotel. Today we will embark on a Boat tour to Kangeq. Kangeq is a former settlement in the Sermersooq municipality of southwestern Greenland. It was a traditional fishing village, abandoned in the 1980s. This tour starts from Nuuk city and takes approximately 1 hour to travel by boat to Kangeq. The famous artist Aron (1882-1869) was born and lived in kangeq. He was a sealer and painter and is famous for his descriptions of Greenland’s culture and people as well as his illustrations of Greenlandic myths and stories. It is quite an experience walking around this small abandoned ghost town. In comparison with the abandoned settlement of Qoornoq, this small settlement is not really used by anyone today. Therefore it is almost like a museum that provides insights into the consequences of the politics in the 1950s and 1960s where inhabitants were forced to leave their homes and settle in the “big” and noisy cities. This was one of the biggest political decisions in the country’s history and had a significant impact on many lives. Later return back to your hotel. Overnight at Hotel

Day 5                  Ilulissat – Eqi Sermia - Ilulissat

 

Breakfast at Hotel. Today we make our own way to Ilulissat harbour for Full Day Eqi Sermia Tour by Boat. Only few places in Greenland are as beautiful as the Eqi Glacier, which ends in the fiord 80 kilometres north of Ilulissat. The excursion to the Eqi Sermia glacier gives you the opportunity to get very close to the inland ice and to see the calving phenomenon. The boat journey to the glacier depends on the boat and the weather and sea conditions but it's approximately 3/4 hours. At the glacier the boat stops approx 500 metres from it and there you will have 1 hour to admire the calving while drinking a cup of coffee. Lunch will also be served. Later we will return back to Iiulissat. Overnight at Hotel

 

Day 6                  Ilulissat

 

Breakfast at Hotel. Today morning we will take a 2hrs Guided Walking Tour of Ilulissat with our expert guide. Discover Ilulissat's history and culture. Visit the old town, the fishing harbour, the old church and the museum while leisurely walking among the locals. Ilulissat – Jakobshavn was founded in 1741 and it is today the third biggest town in Greenland with over 4.500 inhabitants. The guide will tell you about the history of the city, the Greenlandic culture and the modern life 300 km north of the Arctic Circle. The tour will start from the old part of town where there are the buildings of the first danish settlement with the harbour, the church and the museum. The afternoon is free to explore the island on your own. Tonight we’ll embark on Evening/Midnight Sun Cruise sailing among the icebergs (Cruise Included). The midnight/evening sun gives the icebergs a unique play of colours that people return to experience again and again. Sailing during the night with the sun still shining is a fantastic and unusual experience. Almost every visitor in Ilulissat chooses to try this boat trip among the icebergs at least once. During the year, more than 46 km of ice flows into the fiord. The result is gigantic icebergs, which can be more than 100 metres on each side and with a height on more than 100 metres above the water surface. These giants strand at the end of the fiord, and that gives a good opportunity to sail among them. The icebergs are beautiful every kind of weather; in the sunshine the contrasts are very clear, the blue shades are very beautiful, when it is cloudy and the midnight sun casts a unique glow on the icebergs during the night. The boat trip at bright night is definitely an extraordinary experience. Because of the proximity of Ilulissat to the Arctic Circle the night sky is still dominated by the midnight sun and the red and gold colors reflecting back from the icebergs is truly an once-in-a-lifetime experience. Our ship carefully winds its way through the massive blocks of ice before returning us to the harbor and hotel for the remainder of the night. Overnight at Hotel.

Day 7                  Illulissat

Breakfast at Hotel. Day free at leisure until departure transfer to Illulissat Airport for your own flight out of Illulissat to your next destination.
