such a beautiful country
The trip was amazing, I really enjoyed my time in Greenland, such a beautiful country. Thanks to Greenland tours for making this trip possible and for helping me with the planning as well as questions I raised during the process. I cannot wait to come back to Greenland and would not hesitate to recommend GT to my friends and relatives.
Es war einfach der Hammer!
Grönland ist schon mal sehr beeindruckend. Die Organisation vor der Reise und Kontakt war perfekt. Die Tour mit dem Kajak war großartig, der guide aus Spanien, leider habe ich seinen Namen vergessen, war sehr professionell, wir hatten großen Spaß, vielen Dank nochmal! Der Flughafen ist zwar nur 3 km von Ilulissat entfernt, aber eine Abholung von dort zum Hostel wäre auch schön gewesen. Sollte man optional noch anbieten. Die Reise war ganz große Klasse, eine meiner besten Unternehmungen! Es war einfach der Hammer!
