  • Day 1: From Reykjavik to Ilulissat

    Board your flight from Iceland to the Arctic village of Ilulissat. If it's a sunny day, you can enjoy wonderful views over the Greenland ice cap from the plane.

    On arrival, you will be transferred to your accommodation where you will meet a representative and hear more about optional day trips available. You will also have the choice of going on a city walk with your representative to become familiar with the town and learn about the community.

    After a day of travel and sightseeing, enjoy an included 2-course dinner and relax at your accommodation.

  • Day 2: Choose Your Own Adventure

    Today you have the entire day at your leisure. You can choose to relax around town and enjoy the beautiful landscape of endless ice and tremendous icebergs floating by off shore. Or you could opt to get a different—or closer—view of the icebergs by boat, land or air with one of the many optional guided activities available today.

    Return to town and enjoy the evening at your leisure.  

    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 passengers along with having specific travel departure dates. Contact your travel consultant for more information.  

  • Day 3: Return to Iceland

    Before saying goodbye to this majestic island, you still have the entire morning to join a short optional excursion or do some last-minute souvenir shopping. You'll board your overnight return flight to Iceland later today. With the midnight sun, you might have another chance to enjoy the stunning views over the Icefjord and the rugged landscape from the plane.


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


We don’t like to brag, so we’ll let our happy customers do it for us.

Truly memorable and treasured trip

Because it was necessary to change the dates of the Extra Services (cultural walks/boat trips/etc) of our prepaid tour; we were not adequately dressed for the boat trip thru the icebergs. This was only due to time limitations after arriving from our Iceland flight. Otherwise, everything was wonderful; especially our beautiful view at Hotel Artic!!!!! Erlas Sonja was very nice to work with; we had no issues with any vouchers. Many thanks for making our adventure to Greenland a truly memorable and treasured trip. Our experience was a very positive one. Got your contact from an article in International Travel News written by someone we had met on a trip to Svalbard with several years earlier.

Happy to deal with Nordic Visitor
