Iceland and East Greenland

Depart:
Hosted Tour
7 Days/ 6 Nights

June-August

Experience the capital of Iceland, Reykjavik, a modern metropolis with amazing nature on its doorstep. A rough landscape in grayish and dark greenish colors. Only 2 hours flying time west of Iceland on the edge of the gigantic Greenland Inland Ice Cap the tiny settlements of Kulusuk and Ammassalik witness the ability of the Eskimo population to adjust to the arctic climate. East Greenland is a great experience of Arctic nature and is totally a different world from Reykjavik and the Icelandic landscape. The perfect combination.
