West Greenland

In West Greenland you will find the Ilulissat Icefjord, which is on the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.  You can experience a range of arctic experiences, like whale watching, dog sledding, the midnight sun and more.

The size of this area is enormous as it ranges from the Disko Bay in central West Greenland to the polar extremes of the far north. 

Most of the tours we offer are in the Ilulissat region, which is known for it diversity in landscapes and wildlife, quality hotels and culinary experience.

  • Nuuk - Capital of Greenland

    Summer 2020

    from $2,243

    Explore Greenland's capital Nuuk, founded by missionary Hans Egede in 1728. There are around 16,800 inhabitants in Nuuk. Nuuk Fjord is sometimes overlooked in favor of its icier neighbors to the north, but this intricate water system is the second largest in the world, packed with inlets and islands open for exploration by boat or kayak. The solitude and scenery provide a perfect backdrop for hiking, angling for Arctic char, hunting or kayaking. The deep waters of the fjord teem with flavorful cod and redfish, delivering a bounty for both fishing and eating. Like a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow, the Narsap Sermia glacier flows directly into the fjord filling the headwaters with the sought-after icebergs, afterall.

Why Iceland?

Accessible via a short, five-hour flight from the east coast of the United States, Iceland is a lot closer than you might imagine

Glaciers

Despite its rather misleading name, only 11% of Iceland is covered by ice. That said, it is home to Europe's largest glacier, Vatnajökull, as well as 268 others.

Volcanoes

Volcanic eruptions in Iceland happen, on average, every five years. Although international media coverage surrounding the 2010 Eyjafjallajökull eruption might lead one to believe otherwise, volcanic eruptions in Iceland tend to not have much impact on daily life.
