Experience tundra safaris, see musk oxen, snow hares and reindeer, and take a look around point 660 – the protected ice sheet – because Kangerlussuaq is the only place in Greenland where you can walk directly to the ice.

Staying at Polar Lodge or Old Camp gives you the opportunity to experience an area and nature that doesn’ t dress up for guests, but is beautiful and raw at the same time. Nature is right here. Whether we visit it or. The feeling seems to creep up on you with the tours we have organized.

End your journey by being overwhelmed by the sight of the majestic Russel Glacier towering into the sky.

Accommodation in Kangerlussuaq.

With accommodation at either Polar Lodge or Old Camp, you have quick access to the airport. From here it’s easy to explore the local wildlife, hike in the area or visit the nearby ice cap.

Sightseeing Kangerlussuaq, historical roots and close to the Greenlandic sled dog.

On a guided drive, you’ll experience Kangerlussuaq’s distinctive character, learn about the life of the locals and the region’s role in world history. You’ll hear about how the area was used during World War II and later during the Cold War.
You’ll pass viewpoints of the fjord, visit Kelly Ville – a research station, and see the old base area.
Last but not least, you’ll meet the Greenlandic sled dog with a visit to the village dog kennel.

Tundra safari – flora, rivers and wildlife.

Is anything moving? Instinctively watch out for musk oxen, snow hares, reindeer and foxes from the windows of the Arctic-adapted buses as you travel through the beautiful tundra landscape of the most extensive ice-free area in Greenland.
Kangerlussuaq is known for having one of the longest ice-free periods in Greenland, making it an important home for various animal species, which helps to provide a relatively rich flora compared to other regions in Greenland.
Out here there are rocky outcrops, valleys, rivers, and you want to reach out, touch, even that which is far away, yet seems so close because the clear air allows you to see further than your eyes are used to.

The guide will bring binoculars to spot animals along the way. On the tour there will be an opportunity to “stretch your legs”, enjoy the silence and the view.

Ice sheet point 660 – ice, ice, ice, as far as the eye can see.

Imagine a view of endless white. The horizon meets a panorama of ice and snow – this is the realm of silence, interrupted only by the sound of your own breathing and the crunch of snow underfoot.
Point 660 is known as a starting point for hiking on the Inland Ice, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with an area covering 80% of Greenland’s surface. The ice at point 660 is thousands of years old and the landscape is constantly changing with ice moving and creating new shapes in the terrain.
Kangerlussuaq is the only place in Greenland where you can drive to the ice sheet, and it’s a beautiful drive through the magnificent landscape, with views of mountains, valleys and rivers.

A hiking route awaits you once the car is parked. Some parts of the route will be hilly. For some, this will require hiking poles and possibly adding studded soles/skid protection under their boots. Ask before your trip.

The Russel Glacier – and icebergs being born.

The Russel Glacier is one of the most impressive natural sceneries you can experience in Greenland. Its ice walls rise majestically, in some places up to 60 meters in height.
It “feels wild” to stand in front of a giant wall of ice stretching up to the sky, listening to the jarring sound of ice moving, and maybe even witnessing one of the moments of ice calving – a natural phenomenon where large blocks of ice break off and crash into the water with a bang.

The 1.5-hour drive in a four-wheel drive tundra bus to reach the glacier is an experience in itself, crossing the Arctic landscape with the chance to see wildlife such as musk oxen and reindeer.

The simplicity gave me a sense of slowing down. My family and I took in the impressions, stopped, and were just right here.
