Why should you travel to Greenland with us?

Wild, unexplored, and once home to the famous Norse explorer, Erik the Red

Greenland really is one of the world’s last remaining frontiers; a playground of intrepid explorers where, in the heart of a true wilderness, you can go for miles without seeing another soul. A journey as much as a destination, a tailormade vacation in Greenland opens up epic Arctic adventures like snowmobiling, fjord sailing, and polar bear tracking. Our Travel Expert Rob has also been busy locating the most remote, idyllic hideaways on the continent, like that of Ilimanaq Lodge in Disko Bay where the cabins blend in with the natural surroundings. It’s easily our best-kept secret.

Moody, sensitive and enormous, Greenland – with its seas of jagged ice, stately mountains, and desolate landscapes – is the ultimate destination for those who want to channel their inner explorer and get very Jack London with nature. Traverse this unimaginable land by snowmobile, take a hearty lunch on an iceberg, and summit unnamed mountains in search of the heart of Greenlandic culture.

Unsurprisingly, Greenland’s offering of hotels isn’t by any means ordinary. But that, for the adventurous among you, is its biggest calling card. Isolated villages, glacial boutique hotels, and mountainous lodges are the order of the day, including the panoramic views offered by the incomparable Ilimanaq Lodge – where you can literally watch whales pirouetting in the waters beneath you.

For those who want to do their honeymoon differently, Greenland is the obvious – albeit challenging – choice. Forget lounging in the sun and indulging yourself in silver service restaurants. This is all about pushing yourself, whether dining on a slab of iceberg or slowly, surely, tracking polar bears across the frigid ice. We don’t hold back on the comforts, but this is a far cry from faraway St. Tropez.

Top Locations in Greenland

If we were asked to choose our top three places in Greenland, we’d go for these.
Nuuk, Greenland

Nuuk

Greenland’s up-and-coming capital.

A chic hub just in the country’s southwest, here you’ll find a city full of gourmet seafood restaurants, avant-garde architecture, and edgy boutiques – as well as a heavy dose of Greenlandic culture. We’ll hook you up with a local guide who’ll take you on a private tour of the city, uncovering the history and culture of Nuuk, photographing the colorful buildings of Nuutoqaq, and sampling Nordic cuisine at one of our favorite restaurants, Nipisa.

Holidays in Greenland

Disko Bay

Quaint villages, glistening glaciers, and a mecca for whale watching.

Located on the west coast of Greenland, Disko Bay is a stunning region scattered with epic ice formations, which of course lends itself well to many Arctic adventures. The highlight? Ilimanaq Lodge. After a 30-minute boat transfer from Ilulissat, passing the UNESCO Ilulissat Icefjord en route, you’ll wind up at the chic cabins perched cliff-side on an Arctic Fjord. Boasting a wall-sized window for optimum bay-views and a private terrace for whale watching, intimate dining a la deux is just the icing on the cake.

Hiking in Greenland

Kangerlussuaq

A springboard to the second-largest ice sheet in the world

Sitting at the end of a deep blue fjord, Kangerlussuaq town in western Greenland is home to just 508 people. And whilst it may seem like a stepping-stone for some travelers, there’s more than meets the eye. With 300 days of clear sky a year, Kangerlussuaq is one of the best spots in Greenland to see the Northern Lights, but it also paves the way to explore the vast Greenland Ice Cap. Covering almost 80% of the country’s surface and under constant review by scientists, our local guide Ivalu will take you hiking on top to explore the sheer scale of it.
