Just over one hour and a half by flight from Reykjavik lies Greenland's beautiful remote east coast, home of the Ammassalik Inuit. Kulusuk is the gateway to East Greenland located on a small rocky island between jagged mountains and an extensive fjord system. It is almost always surrounded by icebergs and ice sheets floating on the Arctic Ocean. In Kulusuk traditional hunting and fishing are still essential sources of income for the 360 residents of this enchanting village. Weather permitting; it may be possible to see an ancient drum dance reflective of the indigenous culture.
The total length of stop in Greenland is about 4 hours. We recommend wearing good walking boots as walking distance is around 4 miles.
Fly to Kulusuk from Reykjavik Domestic Airport located in the city centre. On arrival meet your local Greenland guide and walk from the airport to the centre of the village (approximately 3km). Whilst the walk is not particularly strenuous it is undulating so sturdy shoes are recommended.
On arrival into the village visit the small museum to learn about the local culture and customs and stroll around the town, speaking with the locals and then visit the beautiful church. You can visit the harbour from where fishing and hunting expeditions are launched and you may see the traditional Greenlandic drum dance. Walk back to the airport for the flight back to Reykjiavik.
