Day 1: Copenhagen | Ilulissat

Begin your journey from Copenhagen, located on the islands of Zealand and Amager, at the southern end of The Sound. It is the city's historic center, contains Frederiksstaden, an 18th-century rococo district, home to the royal family’s Amalienborg Palace. Start heading to Ilulissat.

Day 2: World Heritage Icefjord | Northern Lights

After you start your hike at the old heliport, you will be heading to the UNESCO-area by the wooden trail. Afterward, you will continue your voyage to the ruins of Sermermiut. For over 4,000 years, various groups of Inuit individuals settled in Sermermiut, a place known for the huge amount of wildlife in its terrain, and since the entire area is protected by high hills, this region in Greenland was the perfect place for them to set up a long-term dwelling.

Day 3: Oqaatsut

  • 1 Lunch
Oqaatsut, formerly Rodebay or Rodebaai, is a settlement in Avannaata municipality, in western Greenland. The modern name of the settlement is Kalaallisut for "Cormorants". The village is served by the communal all-purpose Pilersuisoq store.

Experience a day tour to Oqaatsut by boat. Enjoy a short hiking around Oqaatsut and their lunch pack.

Day 4: Sermermiut | Icefjord Hiking

Hike to Sermermiut and Icefjord. Sermermiut is an Inuit settlement in the Disko Bay, Greenland. The location is now part of the Ilulissat Icefjord World Heritage Site. The pre-colonial history of Sermermiut was pieced together by a series of archaeological excavations during the twentieth century. On your way, you will see the stone ruins of the old turf houses, which are located on top of the small hills in the area - all with a view to the icefjord. More than 250 Inuits lived in Sermermiut at its peak, and the last Inuits left the settlement around year 1850.

Day 5: Greenland Ice Sheet | Point 660

  • 1 Dinner
From Ilulissat, take a journey to Kangerlussuaq. The Greenland Ice Sheet is a breathtaking natural formation that has shaped and grown over millions of years as layers of compacted snow and ice, gases, dust, and water accumulated and developed. Although its topography is nearly always uniform and unchanging, the Ice Sheet is always active; it's like a living, breathing, evolving organism.

In the evening,enjoy your dinner in this relaxed atmosphere of Restaurant Roklubben while enjoying the surroundings and sample some of the best fares that Greenlandic cuisine has to offer.

Day 6: Kangerlussuaq | Return Home

After breakfast, you can take your flight back to Copenhagen to conclude your journey.

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
