Greenland Icecap & Blue Lakes | Kangerlussuaq
Go for spectacular sightseeing to the Ice Cap and Glaciers by plane, at the head of the fantastic Kangerlussuaq fjord. On this tour we will give you the opportunity to see the Ice Cap up close, and the joy of watching the amazing wildlife surrounding Kangerlussuaq.
The flight starts from former US military airport (Bluie west 8), which now is Greenland's biggest international airport - Kangerlussuaq Airport, also known as "Søndre Strømfjord". Before departure, you will be briefed by Air Zafari's skilled pilot. The pilot will orientate you about the planned route, flight conditions and the possibilities to see reindeers or herds of musk oxes.
Regardless of where you are seated, there is a guarantee of great views from the large windows of the plane . Well onboard the pilot goes through the safety instructions and asks you to put on your headset, through which you can communicate.
Immediately after take-off, you will see Greenland from one of the very best angles. We are now heading for the amazing Icecap east of Kangerlussuaq, where we on our tour will slide over the fantastic fauna of the inland of Greenland. On the way to the Icecap you will be able to see giant gorges made by the retracting Icecap, and one or two moraines. On the tour you will be able to enjoy the various wildlife beneath you, and before long experience the enormous Ice Cap. On the way back to Kangerlussuaq we fly over "Paradise Valley", an amazing area.
