It is, in fact, the record holder for the most amount of sunny days in a year, time and time again.On this tour, you’ll be driven around the area to different interesting viewpoints whilst listening to the guide tell about the history of everything in between certain buildings to the earliest inhabitants that arrived more than 4000 years ago and lay the grounds for a nearby area becoming a part of the highly noted UNESCO World Heritage Sites.The settlement as it is now is actually a product of the 2nd world war, starting off as an airbase for Americans in 1941. Kangerlussuaq served as a midway point for military personnel and airplanes as crossing the Atlantic in one flight wasn’t viable at the time. As time passed and the necessity for a midway point became less and less needed, the Americans eventually sold the airport to Greenland for 1 dkk, as long as they always had a right to land at the airport. This suddenly gave Greenland an international airport, and an extensive roadway system, unlike anywhere else in Greenland. This, as well as its incredible weather stability and numerous wildlife,  has made Kangerlussuaq a hub for tourists, researchers, and adventurers.In just 2 hours we’ll show you all the interesting sights, where you’ll learn about the Greenlandic culture and their ability to adapt to life in the Arctic.
