DAY TO DAY PROGRAM
Day 1: Copenhagen – Ilulissat – Introduction to Ilulissat and City walk – 2 hours
Departure from Reykjavik Airport at 11.50. Arrival at Ilulissat at 12.05 (local time)
On arrival to Ilulissat you take a Taxi to Ilulissat Guesthouse, where you will have time to settle in.
The first thing on your program is to meet our local guide and get a 2 hour city walk. If you have any questions regarding your program in Ilulissat you can just ask the guide. You will do a walk around town and get to know the interesting history and the town where you will spend the next days. You will see the fishing harbor, the old colonial part of Ilulissat and town museum, which was also home of the famous polar explorer Knud Rasmussen.
Day 2: Sermermiut hike to UNESCO-site and Northern light snow shoe tour
Wake up to an extra ordinary view. You will go out on todays first trip a hike out t0 the icefjord and UNESCO. This trip will start from Ilulissat Guesthouse, where you’ll walk together to the UNESCO-site. Here we will walk through the Sermermiut valley and continue out to the ice fiord to enjoy the breathtaking view. Depending on the weather conditions, we will decide how long the trip will be.
After a nice hike to the ice fiord and the UNESCO-site, you can now relax in town during the afternoon or consider to add on a 2 hours dog tour (DKK 1.800 per person) ski-rental or scenic flight, depending on your wishes.
During the evening we will put on our snow shoes and go to the outback of the town, looking for northern lights. Hopefully we will be lucky, and see them dancing on the sky. The guide will lead the way and share greenlandic stories and tales with you along the way.
Day 3: Icefiord cruise and Sauna visit
During the day you will join the boat, while you slowly sail along the icebergs. At winter time this is an extraordinary experience. You will feel the Arctic nature up close as you enjoy the sun reflecting in the huge ice bergs just outside town, where the UNESCO area begins. A must for the photographer. Once again, remember to put on a lot of layers . It’s much more fun to be out on deck than inside the boat.
Returning back to your guesthouse, you are invited to join our wellness sauna with a panoramic view over the Disko Bay. We have towels, water and etheric oils ready for your for this little treat. You can also book the sauna on private basis DKK 1195,-
Day 4: Day at leisure
This day you have to yourself. Either you can buy those souvenirs for your friends and family, do a hike or visit the local museums. If you want to do ice fishing or try the snow mobiles then that’s also possible. Please let us know if you need help regarding extra trips.
If you haven’t had any Greenlandic food yet, then that might be something you would like to do on your last night in Ilulissat.
Remember to book a taxi for the airport tomorrow. Check-in should be done 60 minutes prior to departure.
Morning departure from Ilulissat airport. Arrival in Copenhagen early evening.
We hope that you have had a fantastic time in Greenland!
