Highlights of Iceland & Greenland

7 nights around Iceland and Greenland

What's included:

Discover South Iceland’s most iconic attractions, including Gullfoss waterfall and Geysir hot springs, during a 4-night stay in Iceland’s capital. Then, bathe in the famous Blue Lagoon for a holiday of extreme contrasts and explore Reykjavik, Iceland’s cosmopolitan capital city. We offer both a 3-star and a 4-star hotel option in Reykjavík.

A 4-day visit to Greenland brings you to a world of giant icebergs, hauling husky dogs and fascinating Inuit culture. Stay three nights in Ilulissat, West Greenland, which is popular for visitors searching for an ideal mix of authentic Inuit culture and a modern society that pulses under the magical light of the midnight sun. Located on the west coast of Greenland, above the Arctic Circle, Greenland’s famous Ilulissat Icefiord is the sea mouth of Sermeq Kujalleq, one of the many glaciers through which the Greenland ice cap reaches the sea.

What you'll do

Day 1: Welcome to Iceland

Individual transfer by Flybus shuttle bus from Keflavík International Airport to your accommodation in Reykjavík, where you spend two nights. Today you may explore Iceland’s capital city on your own if time allows.

Overnight location:
Fosshótel Barón (3*) / Fosshótel Reykjavík (4*) or similar hotels, Reykjavík. Dinner is on your own.

Day 2: The Golden Circle

Iceland is spectacular, and so is the Golden Circle Route. The first stop is Thingvellir National Park, the beautiful site of Iceland’s first parliament and the place where the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates meet and move apart. There is a widening fissure in the ground where the planet opens up. The next stop is the Gullfoss waterfall that tumbles 34 meters into the Hvítá river. Nearby we explore the Geysir geothermal fields with a variety of hot springs and bubbling pools. The sheer power of water and steam erupting from the ground makes you realise how alive the ground is beneath our feet. Trip duration: 8 hours

Overnight location:
Fosshótel Barón (3*) / Fosshótel Reykjavík (4*) or similar hotels, Reykjavík.
Meals included: Breakfast

Day 3: Reykjavik - Ilulissat, city walk in Ilulisat & sunset cruise in the Icefiord

Private airport transfer to Keflavík International Airport for your 3-hour flight to Ilulissat, Greenland. Transfer to 4-star Hotel Arctic. After the welcome meeting with your local guide, enjoy a guided city walk of Ilulissat. Afterwards, you have some time to explore the town, visit the local museum and observe Greenlandic life at the always busy harbour. Welcome dinner (2-course) is included at Hotel Arctic.

Around 22:00, depart for a sunset cruise to the famous Ilulissat Icefiord, the world’s largest ice sculpture park. The experience is overwhelming; the lights and colours constantly change. Enjoy a late drink on “the real rocks”. The tour duration is about 3 hours. Dress warmly.

(Note: The season for midnight sun is approx. May 22-Jul 24. Outside this season, the excursion is operated as an evening cruise with the beautiful sunset reflecting over the icebergs).

Overnight location:
Hotel Arctic (4*), Ilulissat.
Meals included: Breakfast & welcome dinner

Day 4: Boat trip to Eqi - the calving glacier & Rodebay - hunter's village

Breakfast at the hotel. Early morning departure for the one-day boat trip to Eqi – the calving glacier. The Eqi glacier runs into the fjord 80 km north of Ilulissat and is one of the most beautiful places in Greenland. It is possible to get very close to the 5-km wide glacier front and experience huge pieces of ice breaking off. The sound of an active calving glacier is quite remarkable, while the sight of icebergs toppling into the water is breathtaking. Afterwards, we continue to the small settlement of Oqaatsut/Rodebay. The local population of about 40 people is dependent on fishing and hunting. You experience an entirely different world compared to the nearby town of Ilulissat. Guided walk through the village before enjoying a local meal at the old trading station. For hundreds of years, Oqaatsut/Rodebay was a stopover place for Dutch whalers, who dragged the huge whales onto land here in the old village. The village, which lies in a beautiful natural setting just 15 km north of Ilulissat, has its school, church, shop and a single restaurant, “H8”, which serves excellent meals in the old colonial building. Tour duration: about 7-8 hours.

Overnight location:
Hotel Arctic (4*), Ilulissat.
Meals included: Breakfast & lunch/dinner

Day 5: Inuit Settlement at the Ilulissat Icefiord

Breakfast at the hotel. By bus as far as the road goes. Guided walking tour to the old Inuit settlement Sermermiut located on the famous Ilulissat Icefiord inscribed on the UNESCO’s world heritage list in 2004. The ancient settlement of Sermermiut, 1.5 km south of the town, is surrounded by Ilulissat’s beautiful icebergs. Various Inuit cultures have lived here over the past 4,000 years, and you can still see remains from ancient times. Learn about local history and customs before Europeans arrived. See plots settled for thousands of years and admire the views across the majestic icebergs. Please wear proper boots or hiking boots. The hiking distance is about 3 km (1,9 mls) round-trip; hiking time is about 1 hour. Terrain: mainly track bridge and a bit of uneven nature and rocky trail. The tour duration is about 3 hours.

The rest of the day is free at leisure to hike along the Icefiord and explore the town of Ilulissat.
