Great crew, lots of fish and a freshly cooked dinner. Saw whales and Caribou. Would have loved the fish to be just grilled or sashimi. Overall though, I would highly recommend.😃

This trip was awesome! Spectacular! The ice is ever changing, and to spend real time out there, sometimes just sitting and absorbing the splendor, is unique and wonderful. This was the highlight of my trip to Greenland, and one of the highlights of my summer. The information sheet lets you know pretty much everything you need to know; the information is very good. All of the guides that I met were great; Pavel took me on this trip and he is awesome. I really, really recommend this trip.

One thing should be made clear, this is not a safari like those in Africa or South Asia. The trip takes you up onto the top of the hills on the other side of Kangerlussuaq, from which you hope to spot wildlife from afar in the valleys. But, it was great to see the views, and more of the beautiful landscape of Greenland. And all of the guides in Kangerlussuaq are really nice people and very informative about the settlement and the area.

Another interesting trip through the floating ice. The observations "decks" fore and aft were too small for all of the people, a bit crowded when we all tried to go out there. Unfortunately, we could not get close at all to the glaciers due to the ice; perhaps the tour would have been more memorable if we had.

Wonderful excursion! Our crew was friendly and helpful! We had a chance to stop and do some whale watching on our way to the fishing spot. The fishing spot was close to a beautiful waterfall on a nearby mountain. We caught plenty of cod and enjoyed a nice dinner and conversation at the restaurant in Qooqqut.

A "must-do" when in Nuuk! This was a fantastic trip. We were fortunate to take this tour on a crisp, sunny day. We saw whales, seals, birds, and some impressive icebergs and glaciers. The crew is friendly and hospitable.

Bring your camera and some sunglasses (it can get bright near the glaciers)! The crew provides beverages and some snacks, and the interior of the boat is kept warm.

A wonderful trip in Goodthaabfjord but we were looking forward to be able to fish more (we only got to fish one person at the time, for a short while for two persons in our family of four. Our kids were really looking forward to the fishing but now they had to stay beside waiting…)
The restaurant at the Qooqut Nuan just has an amazing view and the place is 👍👍👍 Our fish was prepared in varioys ways, first as a great fish soup as a starter. Then as different main courses that were both high and low (toi much fried fish on the table).
But overall a very nice trip 😊

We are an Australian couple aged 69 and 85 who undertook the "Winter Adventure Package - Kangerlussuaq and Sisimiut" tour in March 2023. The itinerary and activities were interesting and good fun. Inesa, our travel contact with Guide to Greenland was excellent. Well-organised, flexible and professional, she always provided prompt, friendly and helpful responses to our queries. The tour was well organised via Seria from Tupilak Travel who provided friendly and efficient service. The accommodation was also very good.

Greenland in winter is stunning and it is well worth noting that the tour was entirely “do-able” for people of our age, even with outdoor activities in winter. Greenland was not all that cold (although we are used to travelling in extreme Siberian Russia). You do, however, need quality cold-weather clothing and snow boots. Inesa's advice to bring "spikes" or cleats with us was invaluable.

Our destinations of Kangerlussuaaq and Sisimiut were both fascinating.

The bus trip to the ice cap was a real highlight of our stay in Kangerlussuaq. Our Hotel Kangerlussuaq room was spacious and well-furnished. But it's well to know that the hotel is huge, with numerous steep stairs to negotiate with your luggage, and few lifts. There is a cafeteria with average food. It is also worth noting that the up-market Musk Ox Restaurant is often booked out and it is advisable to book well in advance. There is an option to dine at the nearby Roklubben Restaurant at Lokur. A bus is provided to take people to and from the premises. The food was very good and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal there.

Our stay in Sisimiut was extremely well organised by the manager Sisi, from Hotel Sisimiut. The staff could not do enough for us. We thoroughly enjoyed visiting the mountainous backcountry by snowcat and dog sledding with local provider Julia, owner of Greenland Dog Adventure. Our accommodation at the Sisimiut Hotel was excellent; well-appointed and comfortable. The adjoining Nasaasaaq Restaurant which can be reached internally via a "tunnel" from the hotel was very good.

Adding a trip from Kangerlussuaq to Sisimuit was a last-minute decision, and we were very pleased we undertook this tour.

I did this trip in August 2023 with two other team members and our guide. It was spectacular and deserves more than 5 stars our of 5! I was not a mountaineer and had no experience with glaciers or ice trekking, but I was physically fit. Our guide plus his helpers were amazing, everything was taken care of for us and we just had to carry our packs, pay attention and follow instructions. The rewards were incredible, truly a once in a lifetime experience. We did not see the Northern Lights (it was too early in the season) but we did see many whales. Even though the terrain is dangerous, I felt totally safe with our guide. I highly recommend this experience. I can share a link with pictures and videos if you are seriously considering this trip and want a sense of what you would experience, but of course each trip is different so yours won't necessarily be the same places.

We are an Australian couple aged 69 and 85 years, who undertook the Highlights of Arctic Winter Five-Day Tour - Ilulissat and Disko Bay, in March 2023. The itinerary and the organisation of the overall trip was very good. Inesa our travel contact with Guide to Greenland was excellent. Well organised, flexible and professional, she always provided prompt, friendly and helpful responses to any queries we had. Greenland in winter is stunning and it is well worth noting that the tour was entirely "do-able", even for older people.

We knew that we had shared accommodation during our stay in Ilulissat. Our guest house however, was very comfortable and the facilities were very good. And the views were splendid. We were also extremely fortunate to have shared the house with two of the nicest people we could ask for. In saying that, at our ages we would not consider shared accommodation again. We were lucky there were just four of us as the guest house accommodates six. We would certainly not take the risk of sharing again, and opt for hotel accommodation in Ilulissat. We acknowledge however, that others would be happy to share with four other people.

We were somewhat disappointed that we were not picked up for any of the day tours we were booked on, and had to make our own way there. In some instances, it was difficult to know where to meet with our tour providers. There were available taxis but in very cold and snowy winter conditions, they were often difficult to find and the agent really should have provided a pick-up service.

Overall however, we thoroughly enjoyed our tour and would highly recommend Greenland as a delightful winter destination.

This was a fabulous and very fun day out with Thorlak, a wonderful and kind guide. I recommend this trip to anyone who likes a good vertical challenge and is physically fit.
