Ammassalik East Greenland Tour

Visit Ammassalik, the largest village in East Greenland, just south of the Arctic Circle. Enjoy taking long and short walks in the beautiful surrounding valley. Ammassalik is the largest town in East Greenland with about 1,400 residents. It lies just south of the Arctic Circle, boasting long hours of daylight in summer and the splendor of the Northern Lights in winter. The town is beautifully situated in a protective fjord with high mountains on all sides. It is split in two by a river, which flows through the valley of flowers behind the town. This valley has a unique variety of Arctic flora, and is an ideal place for walks of all lengths.

Minimum stay for this package are 2 nights, however you can extend your stay as you like.
