  • If the conditions permit, you’ll get a chance to see the stunning northern lights.

  • You’ll also explore Greenland’s West Coast. While there you might get a chance to meet local Inuit and their dogsled teams. There may even be a visit to a local hunting village, where you’ll have an opportunity to learn the art of leather tanning.
  • You trip will include the chance to see Franklin Bay’s “Smoking Hills” and the Ilulissat Icefjord, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
