Day 1

Arrival and guided city tour

After you’ve settled in at your hotel you’ll be going on a guided city tour on either a bus or car, which will explore the most interesting sights of Nuuk in about an hour and a half, after which, you can go explore on your own, maybe checking out the gastronomic opportunities or just the old part of town to see the cathedral and the statue of the mother of the sea.

You can also opt to take an extra tour, to go on a boat ride into the fjord to a remote little restaurant, about an hour of sailing away. On our way there we might be so lucky as to see whales or seals, but we’ll definitely try and catch some fish which we can hand over to the chefs at the restaurant which in turn will cook them immediately. It literally doesn’t get fresher than this, or tastier. They are excellent cooks with several things to try while you’re there. This tour would take about 3 hours in total.

Day 2

Icefiord cruise

Today you’ll be going on a true nature and wildlife adventure! We’ll be heading out to the icefjord of Nuuk which several glaciers fill with icebergs of all shapes and sizes. We’ll try and get as close to one of the glaciers as possible to enjoy lunch with a view to it, this very much depends on the amount of ice in the fjord though! There is a deafening silence out here only broken by the occasional cracks of the ice. After lunch we’ll head over to a former fishing village now used a summer resort by the locals, explore that for a bit before heading back towards Nuuk passing waterfalls and tall peaks. The tour ends around 3 p.m.

Today you can choose to add an extra experience of visiting a local home to go for coffee and cakes which we call ‘kaffemik’! Kaffemik has existed since coffee was imported to Greenland, it quickly became the signature of any celebration to gather your friends and family and drink coffee together as well as often cakes or local delicacies. This is a super cozy experience which will give you insights to the everyday life of locals and possibly even hear some interesting stories from their life here in Greenland.

Day 3

Farewell

It’s time to say Goodbye, or Takuss as we like to say in Greenlandic, which means ‘see you again soon’, we hope you’ve had the time of your life and we truly hope to see you again.

Depending on your flight you might have the time to go on a small hike or even play a game of golf! They are available as extras in the booking process. If not you can at least do some last minute shopping.
