Itinerary

Recommended for:
Activity adventure | Natural world | Northern Lights | Winter

This seven-day tour includes a four-night stay in the Greenlandic town of Ilulissat, perched by the side of the Northern Hemisphere's most productive glacier, the Ilulissat Ice Fjord, which deposits a staggering 20 billion tons of icebergs every year into Disko Bay. So not only are you likely to see dazzling displays of the Northern Lights, you can also indulge in sailing among the icebergs and other winter activities such as driving your own dog team across the frozen winter fjords.

Day by day itinerary

Day 1
Copenhagen

Fly to the Danish capital Copenhagen. It's not possible to fly direct to Greenland from London and the nature of the connection times means you'll need to spend a night in Copenhagen. Explore this vibrant, cosmopolitan city is a pleasure, with a large number of cafés, museums and art galleries on offer, as well as the picturesque harbour of Nyhavn. Just ask one of our travel consultants for advice on what to do in Denmark's worthy capital.

Stay: Hilton Copenhagen Airport (Superior)

Day 2
Ilulissat

Take the morning flight to Ilulissat via Kangerlussuaq and transfer to the Hotel Arctic, your base for the next four nights. Situated on a small hill a short walk from the centre of town, the hotel offers spectacular views of Disko Bay and the Ice Fjord. There’s a range of comfortable rooms, suites and igloo pods – all with harbour views – plus a gourmet restaurant, relaxed bar and free shuttle bus to the centre of town and the airport. Enjoy a welcome dinner and coffee this evening and be sure to keep an eye out for the Northern Lights overhead.
