Detailed itinerary

Day 1: Kangerlussuaq - Point 660 - ice cap

The tour starts in Kangerlussuaq, just north of the Polar Circle. In our 4x4 vehicles we drive though tundra and moraine valleys to Point 660. With a little lucky, we might spot some musk oxen, arctic foxes or Greenlandic reindeers on the way. After a two hour hike through the spectacular glacial landscape we will arrive at the camp in the middle of the ice. If conditions allow, we will go on a short evening hike. The sight of the ice cap is absolutely spectacular. We will spend the night in a tent in a warm and comfortable sleeping bag.

Day 2: Ice cap - Kangerlussuaq

After breakfast we venture out onto the ice and explore the amazing glacial landscape. If the weather allows, we will hike towards Russell Glacier. We will get a great impression of the huge crevasses which created the calving glacier. In the afternoon we pack up our camp and drive back to Kangerlussuaq where we spend the night.

Day 3: End of trip

Today this trip ends in Kangerlussuaq.

Remark

The Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon, thus we cannot guarantee that you will see them during your trip. However, if you are traveling in Greenland from end of August to end of March, chances are good that you will be able to observe them, but best deep in the winter (from mid November to mid March). If you travel in April it is unlikely to see the Northern Lights as days are already to bright.
