Detailed Itinerary

Once you have checked into Hotel Kangerlussuaq, the guide will call everyone together for an information meeting. You will get practical advice about the settlement, the area, places to eat and go, and here you can confirm any excursions you may have booked from home.

After the meeting, you can explore at your own pace or you can join the guided sightseeing tour in Kangerlussuaq and the surrounding area.

Ice, ice, and more ice! The name Point 660 does not do justice to this stunning place at the edge of the Ice Sheet. Here, approximately 37 kilometers from Kangerlussuaq, the road ends and all further travel is by foot into the Arctic winter landscape.

This evening, you can join a northern lights tour. The trip to Point 660 and the northern lights tour are included if you buy the excursion package.

Today is free at leisure or, if you have purchased the excursion package, you will be going on a trip to experience the impressive Russell Glacier.

The trip continues to the coastal town of Sisimiut, situated approximately half an hour’s flight west of Kangerlussuaq. The hotel bus picks you up at the airport, and take you to 4-star Hotel Sisimiut, which will be your comfortable base for the next five nights. Check-in is followed by an information meeting with the local guide. At the meeting, the guide will tell you about the town, the area, places to eat and go, and you can confirm the excursions you booked from home. It is also possible to book excursions at the meeting.

If you have purchased the excursion package, the information meeting will be followed by a cultural-historical bus tour of the town, giving give you an impression of the town and what life is like north of the Polar Circle.

Today is yours to enjoy Sisimiut. With nature on your doorstep and culture and shops in town there are plenty of entertainment opportunities, however Hotel Sisimiut also offers a range of excursions – and outdoor hot tubs!

Today is at your disposal. You can participate in excursions from the hotel, or you can take a walk on your own in the second largest town in Greenland.

On your last day in wonderful Sisimiut, you can go on a snowmobile winter safari.

Your Greenland adventure has come to an end – for now, at least. You will head back to Denmark, where it will be early evening by the time you arrive in Copenhagen.
