Arctic Sensations

Day 1: Reykjavik to Nuuk

Spend the early part of your day exploring Reykjavík, Iceland’s colourful capital city, and enjoy the variety of city landmarks, cafes and shops. In the evening, head to the Reykjavik Domestic Airport for your flight to Nuuk, the capital of Greenland, where you will spend the first night of your Arctic getaway.

Day 2: The Icefjord Village & Auroras

From the airstrip at Nuuk, you will fly to the charming Arctic village of Ilulissat, beautifully situated at the mouth of the 56 kilometre-long Ilulissat Icefjord. On arrival, you will be transferred to your accommodation for the next two nights. If you’re lucky and conditions are right, the northern lights might put on a show for you in the night sky!*

*Please note that the northern lights are a natural phenomenon, so sightings cannot be guaranteed.

Day 3: Icebergs & Adventures

Create your own Arctic adventure today! You can choose from a number of fascinating activities, such as a boat ride through a maze of icebergs, a helicopter ride over the ice cap, a dog-sledding safari, a cultural demonstration and village walk or a guided snowmobile tour.*

If you‘re a hiking enthusiast, the tranquil Sermermiut Valley just a few kilometres from Ilulissat offers spectacular views from a number of marked trails. Another option around town is a visit to the local fishermen and hunters at the “Brædtet” market by the harbour along with a stop to the birthplace of the famous explorer Knud Rasmussen.

* Note: We recommend booking any optional activities in advance with your travel consultant at Nordic Visitor, although you are also welcome to book them at your hotel in Ilulissat after arrival.

Day 4: Back to Iceland 

Today you‘ll be transferred to the airstrip in Ilulissat for your flight back to Nuuk, where you will be able to explore the city for a few hours. After a bit of sightseeing and last-minute souvenir shopping, or even a short optional excursion early in the day, make your way to Nuuk Airport for your flight back to Iceland in the evening.

Note: This tour can be customized to fly from Copenhagen (Denmark) instead of Reykjavik (Iceland), with arrivals available from Monday to Saturday. Contact us for details.
