Experience the icy wilderness of Greenland with our range of tours
Wedged between North America and Europe, the remote frontier of Greenland is a once-in-a-lifetime travel destination. Mostly uninhabited and practically untouched by mankind, it's an island of majestic landscapes forged by ice with rugged mountains and spectacular glaciers, which in turn give rise to remarkable fjords and jaw-dropping icebergs. Despite the remoteness and lack of commercialism, there's a veritable smorgasbord of activities and unique experiences to enjoy by sea, land and air. Here you can take a cruise to the icefjords under the midnight sun, head out into the countryside in search of the Northern Lights and take to the skies for a scenic flight to remember.Read More
