3 days in the amazing nature of East Greenland
We arrive in Kulusuk from where a helicopter takes us on a breathtaking, scenic ride to Tasiilaq. You can spend the afternoon in the picturesque town of Tasiilaq learning about the way of life in this remote part of Greenland and hiking in the mountains around the town, where you have a breathtaking view over the area. The next morning we take a boat trip up the Ammassalik fjord with our guide (optional). With a little bit of luck we might even spot some whales deep in the fjord. The first stop on this trip is Ikatek, the fascinating, deserted American base. From there we sail further into the fjord to the Knud Rasmussen Glacier, where we will turn off the engine in order to enjoy the captivating glacier view. On the following day the helicopter will take you back to Kulusuk where your plane leaves for Reykjavík.
