  • Day 2: Nuuk at your Leisure

    Spend the day experiencing Nuuk and its 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 showcases various contemporary works by Greenlandic artists.

    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 3: More Free Time in Nuuk

    Enjoy another day to explore on your own. Nuuk is a great destination to participate in optional activities like guided hikes, city walks, bus tours and boat safaris. One such option is a tour to Kangeq that brings to life the story of Hans Egede, who is considered to be the founder of Nuuk. In the evening, enjoy an included dinner.

Reviews

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

Wonderful

In September, hiking in Ice fiord area is wonderful. The area turned from green to reddish colours within two weeks. A lot of wild berries lied along the undulating hillside. On the far hillside, we saw the first snow and winter was round the corner.

Beyond our expectation

My husband and I have travelled to over 40 countries mostly self planned but some with booking assistance and a few tours. We found the services of Nordic Visitor beyond our expectation. The thoroughness and quality of service was the finest we have ever encountered. We received the ease of having our essential needs planned with the freedom to personally choose our activities along the way. Quality, efficiency, reliability -- words that apply to Nordic Visitor.

Good value for money

The accommodation was always good, breakfasts were excellent, I was very happy with the overall package and felt I got very good value for money.

Accommodation

Sleep soundly, in the accommodation type of your choice, and wake up ready to enjoy another day of exploration.

Comfort

Standard rooms with private shower and WC, TV, hairdryer, telephone, armchair seating area, and coffee or tea making facilities at..
