Camp overnight on the Greenland Ice Cap

Destination Arctic Circle

© Sam Alive

Destination Arctic Circle holds Greenland's most important airport - the airport in Kangerlussuaq. The former U.S. Air Force base serves as a hub offering many connections to the smaller airports spread out across Greenland. There are hardly any roads in Greenland but here a 25 km dirt road connects Kangerlussuaq with the mighty ice cap. Nowhere else in Greenland there is easier access to the Greenland ice cap.

The region offers a vast backland with mountains, secluded lakes and the perfect possibility to see musk oxen and other arctic animals, like reindeer and arctic hare, up close.
