Aurora & Polar Circle Adventure

5 Day Tour, from £1895 per person

Greenland’s only inland town is one of the best places in the country to experience the northern lights, with over 300 nights of clear sky a year. A true wilderness destination, this short break in Kangerlussuaq provides the opportunity to experience nature at its most raw: reindeer and musk oxen call this region home and the mighty inland Ice Cap is just a few miles away.

Tour Itinerary

DAY 1
Fly to Kangerlussuaq
Fly from Copenhagen direct to the Greenlandic settlement of Kangerlussuaq. On arrival meet with local guide and check in to Hotel Kangerlussuaq for 4 nights. A modern hotel with 70 rooms, Hotel Kangerlussuaq is a focal point for the small settlement, and its bar, restaurant and Café Isikkivik are a hub for tourists and locals alike. (D)
DAY 2
Kangerlussuaq
With three full days to explore start with an orientation city tour and learn about the history of the settlement and the former American base, Bluie-West-8. There are a variety of optional excursions to enjoy as well – wrap-up warm and travel as the Inuits have done for centuries on an optional two hour husky sledging adventure. (D)
DAY 3
Kangerlussuaq
Kangerlussuaq’s inland location means that it is just a short drive to Greenland’s immense Ice Cap. Drive along mountain tracks through the spectacular Arctic landscape, passing former glacier valleys and the Arctic desert, along frozen rivers and over small passes, before stopping next to the 3-million cubic kilometre Ice Cap. (B, D)
DAY 4
Kangerlussuaq
Have the day free in the town or book an optional excursion such as an Arctic Nature tour to try and see musk oxen and reindeer. In the evening Kangerlussuaq is one of the best locations in the world to experience Aurora Borealis. Head out with your guide, enjoy a tasty Greenlandic coffee and watch the display unfold above you. (B, D)
DAY 5
Fly to Copenhagen
Fly back to the Danish capital. Ask your Regent Explorer about adding a city break in Copenhagen. (B)
