Greenland is the world’s largest island, a destination for travelers with a love of nature and a sense of adventure. A visit to Greenland is a fascinating and rewarding experience never to be forgotten for those prepared for the adventure. Accommodations are basic but comfortable and weather can be unpredictable.

Gigantic glaciers slide down from the Greenland ice-cap, breaking into majestic icebergs that float away down the still waters of the fjords. Deep valleys and sheltered inlets are covered with the varied and vividly colored vegetation of the Arctic.

Greenland can be a destination itself, or as flights are most often routed through Copenhagen or Reykjavik, combined with Denmark or Iceland, or other countries in northern Europe.

Lakani World Tours can create a travel itinerary best suited for you – depending on your time, interests, and budget. Here are just some recommendations:

  •  Southern Greenland

This area is considered the island’s garden spot with lush valleys in the summer. Visit Narsarsuaq, the gateway to southern Greenland, where Viking sagas come to life in the ruins, fjords and villages. Take a fjord cruise to see the blue icebergs that are prominent here in the south. Experience the modern town of Narsaq mixing modern living with ancient traditions. In Qaqortoq, the biggest town in the south, there is a lively atmosphere and the only central square in the country with a fountain. Travel by boat to Igaliku, the oldest sheep farming settlement in Greenland, rolling valleys surrounded by tall mountain peaks provide a beautiful setting with historic sandstone houses that look quite different from the wooden style seen elsewhere in Greenland.

  •  Nuuk

The capital region surrounds this city, the northernmost capital in the world. The heart of the nation, Nuuk, is a center of culture and modern living mixed with old traditions reflecting history. See expressions of the Inuit culture at the Nuuk Art Museum, learn more about the history at the Greenland National Museum, enjoy the natural scenery, perhaps sight a whale from shore and learn about local cuisine focused very much on the natural bounty.

  •  North Greenland

As the location of the UNESCO World Heritage site, Ilulissat Icefjord, Ilulissat and Disko Bay are probably the most well-known locations in north Greenland, but the thousands of miles of coastline are home to small communities based on hunting and fishing. The Icefjord is a sculpture gallery and the sounds of icebergs cracking and rumbling can be heard all over town even when out of sight. Summer whale watching can be spectacular here with the iceberg backdrop; dog sledding a favorite past time in winter.

Hotel accommodations will be based on your specific travel program, dates, budget and availability at time of booking. Hotels in Greenland are comfortable but basic.
