What to do in Greenland

It combines breathtaking landscapes, exciting adventures, colourful towns, and other once-in-a-lifetime opportunities that will change your life. If you truly want to experience the best of what the world has to offer, book your Greenland flights and travel to one of the most remote islands in existence.
Fly to Nuuk and visit the gateway city of Greenland. You’ll discover more of the town’s rich heritage and history by visiting the iconic statue of Nuuk’s founder, Hans Egede, Hans Egede's House, and church. Hop on a boat next for an incredible whale watching experience. Don’t forget to feel like a true local and celebrate the Nuuk Snow Festival too.
Travel to Kangerlussuaq next and see the spectacular sight of Greenland’s ice sheets, like the amazing Russell Glacier. Explore the area by riding the rugged Icelandic ponies too or experience dog sledding to see the fjord and Upernavik during winter.
You can also sit back and relax with a boat tour of the fjord and icebergs in Tasiilaq. Visit Greenland’s whale watching paradise and see minke, humpback, fin, and killer whales at Uummannaq’s whale safaris. Then enjoy hiking at the gorgeous National Park of Greenland.
Do you often wish for more time? Feel like your wish is granted when you experience the midnight sun in most of Greenland, where the sun stays above the horizon for days or even several weeks in the summer.
