Just a few of the majestic sights you’ll take in during your trip.


A day-by-day plan to guide your arctic adventure.

  • Day 1: Arrival in Greenland

    Fly from Iceland to Nuuk, Greenland's friendly capital city that also happens to be the world‘s smallest capital. After arriving you will be transferred to your hotel, and then you can spend the rest of the day exploring the town, perhaps with a walk down to the old city centre by the harbour, before enjoying an included dinner.

    Spend the next four nights in Nuuk.

  • Day 2: National Museum & Old Colonial Harbour

    Spend the next few days experiencing Nuuk and it's surroundings at your leisure! We recommend visiting the old harbour, with great views over the old part of Nuuk. There you will find the Greenland National Museum, which showcases over 4000 years of Greenlandic history, including well-preserved Inuit mummies discovered in the 1960s. If you’re interested in seeing more of the old vs. new contrasts, check out the architecturally-renowned Katuaq cultural centre that displays various contemporary works by Greenlandic artists.

    Note: We highly recommend booking optional activities well in advance with your travel consultant at Nordic Visitor. Please note that some activities are subject to a minimum number of participants along with having specific travel departure dates. Contact your travel consultant for more details.

  • Day 3: More Free Time in Nuuk

    Enjoy another day of beautiful Nuuk to explore on your own. The city is a great destination to participate in optional activities like guided hikes, city walks, bus tours and boat safaris. Note: We recommend booking optional activities in advance through your travel consultant at Nordic Visitor, though you may also book activities at your hotel in Nuuk during your stay.

  • Day 4: Discover the Hidden Gems of Nuuk

    You have the entire day to explore the city and its surroundings! You could also choose from one of the many optional excursions available from Nuuk. One option is a tour to Kangeq that brings to life the story of Hans Egede, who is considered to be the founder of Nuuk.

  • Day 5: Return to Iceland

    Today it’s time to say goodbye to this majestic island, but you still have time to do some last-minute souvenir shopping. On the return flight to Iceland, enjoy the stunning views over the rugged mountains and the Greenland ice cap.


Here’s a map of your travel route, to help put things in perspective.
