Aurora & Polar Circle Adventure

5 Day Tour, from £2225 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

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.

Learn about how the lights occur and the myths surrounding them, whilst enjoying a traditional Greenlandic coffee. (B)
