Remarkable Greenland - Kulusuk Day Tour

(overnight stay also possible)


Only two-hour flight from Reykjavík will take us to Greenland's beautiful East Coast, home of the Ammassalik Inuit. Kulusuk is the gateway to East Greenland and the small settlement is an excellent introduction to the way of life in a settlement in the Ammassalik area. Kulusuk lies on a small rocky island between saw-toothed mountains and extensive fjords, and it is almost always surrounded by icebergs and a glittering Arctic Ocean.

In Kulusuk you will find some of the east coast's most skillful craftsmen, whose tupilaks are of exceptional quality. Traditional hunting and fishing are still essential sources of income for many families in the settlement. Our guides will escort us the short distance from the airport to the engaging village Kulusuk where we can stroll about and meet some of the 360 local residents and view their quality crafts.

Weather permitting, we'll be treated to kayaking demonstrations and an ancient drum dance reflective of the indigenous culture. On our return flight to Reykjavík we enjoy a spectacular view over huge glaciers and floating icebergs (we recommend travelers to wear good walking boots).

 

It is possible to extend the day tour and stay overnight in a hotel in Kulusuk. See right for further information and prices.
