Meals: Dinner

Day 2: Qeqertarsuaq.

The small town of Qeqertarsuaq is on the south side of the Disco Island. The Danish name of the settlement is godhavn, which translates to “Good Harbour”. The name is due to the favorable location and abundance of whales attributed to the bay.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Day 3: Uummannaq.

Uummannaq is considered one of the most beautiful towns in Greenland. Located on a small island about 300 miles (483 km) north of the Arctic Circle, this tiny, picturesque village lies at the foot of a heart-shaped mountain.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Day 4: Ilulissat.

Our next stop is Ilulissat, which means “iceberg” in Greenlandic. And with good reason, as the town is located at the mouth of the iceberg-filled Ilulissat Ice Fjord. Delight in the thunderous spectacle when icebergs break off from Sermeq Kujalleq glacier and plunge into the fjord.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Day 5: Sisimiut.

With approximately 5,600 inhabitants, Sisimiut is the second largest town in Greenland. It is a modern settlement that maintains ancient traditions. The fishing industry still plays an important role.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Day 6: Nuuk.

Nuuk is the capital of Greenland and its oldest town. Founded in 1728 by Danish-Norwegian missionary Hans Egede, the city combines Arctic traditions and European urbanity. With around 16,000 inhabitants, Nuuk is considered a modern, bustling metropolis compared to the rest of Greenland. Visit the city sights on a walking tour that ends at the National Museum, which exhibits the famous mummies of Qilakitsoq.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Day 7: Ikka Fjord.

The underwater world is like no other, it contains a forest of remarkable mineral columns growing on the seabed. The columns formed over 10,000 years ago of the extremely rare mineral Ikait.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Day 8: Prince Christian Sound.

When conditions are favorable, we travel along the Prince Christian Sound. In this narrow, often ice choked channel, we come so close to icebergs you can almost reach out and touch them.

There are vast green valleys and deep fjords with newly calved icebergs dropping off the ice cap into the sea. Tasiiilaq, the largest town in East Greenland, is located on Ammassalik Island. With its population of approximately 2,000 people, the town is the gateway to explore East Greenland.
