Greenlandic Adventure

Day 1
Arriving in Kulusuk you are picked up at the airport and walk 20 min down to the boat. The transfer takes about 1 hour. We will arrive in Tasiilaq, the main town of the Eastcoast of Greenland. You will stay in a house with bedrooms, shared kitchen-living room and shower, very nice standard. We will then go to the shop to buy food for breakfast and lunch, you can choose what you would like. Dinner will be served every evening through the whole trip.
Rest of the day is free to have a look arround.

Day 2
Pick up at the harbor in Tasiilaq at 9 am. We set off towards the Ammassalik fjord where you, depending on the time of the year, may see whales and icebergs along the way. The first stop will be the Ikateq base. Depending on the tide we will go ashore at Ikateq at this point or we will do it on the way back. At the Ikateq base you can see many old trucks and the old, yet intact, runway. These are the remains from the American presences in Greenland from 1942 to 1948. After the stop in Ikateq, we continue, by boat, up to the Knud Rasmussen Glacier, where we go ashore and enjoy a nice lunch. There will be time to wander around in the area.

After one and a half hour we go for lunch. Just 10 minuts away from the settelment, right by an old winter settelment (old earth huts) with a view of big icebergs and these historic earth huts, we will have lunch. When finished, we will go cruiseing down through the Icefjord, passing big icebergs all the way out to the open Atlantic. We will go around the island back to Tasiilaq.
