Enjoy the scenic flight from Iceland to Greenland.
As you near Greenland, the patterns of the sea ice flowing from the North Pole will be visible from the window of your plane. Keep a watch on the sky when it gets dark. With luck, the northern lights may come out to entertain you.
A boat trip will take you close to the towering icebergs, which change shape every moment as the boat moves by. The colors of the ice are sparkling shades of blue and green in the sun, change as they reflect the sunset in the sky, or can be a mysterious white on other days.
Chasing the Northern Lights
Snowshoe in the Northern Night
Inuit myths & legends
The fjord of Uummannaq has many glaciers flowing into the sea, and in the winter, icebergs from the glaciers are frozen into the fjord.
From Ilulissat, a short flight takes you to the airport of Qaarsut, and from here, it is a scenic helicopter flight.
The landscape in front of town is different every winter, because the icebergs frozen into the sea are never the same.
Let’s go out onto the sea ice to give it a try. Your catch for the day will be dinner, so let’s get some nice tasty fish!
We will hitch the dogs to the sled and take a tour around the island of Uummannaq and We will make a stop at Santa’s House, and go inside for some coffee, tea, and cookies.
Let’s check out the icebergs, stopping to admire the impressive shapes. We may meet some fishermen on the way, or see some seals on the ice in the distance.
We will take a tour around the town in the morning. Life in Uummannaq is a mixture of traditional and modern lifestyles. The town has a history of missionaries, whalers, and merchants coming in the 1700’s
The weather, where the animals are, the movement of ice and tide, are what governs traditional life in the Arctic.
Enjoy your helicopter flight from Uummannaq. The fjord will look different, now that you know how the locals live from the gifts of nature under the sea ice.
Your afternoon in Ilulissat is free time.
Your flight back to Iceland is around noon. Enjoy the view of icebergs in the morning, and we hope to see you in Greenland again.
