A day in East Greenland
If you can only squeeze one day into your schedule for Greenland it’s still better than not going at all! You can experience a bit of Inuit Greenland on a one day excursion to Kulusuk.
This all starts with a two hour flight from Reykjavik to the east coast of Greenland. Once on the ground at Kulusuk, you’ll have a guided walking tour to the village of Kulusuk on Cap Dan. The one day tour is great for clients who are in Iceland for other activities.
Kulusuk Classic One-day tour includes flights, (with a light meal served both ways) a guided tour of the fishing village of Cap Dan with some time for independent exploration of this village of 360 souls. Weather permitting there is a demonstration of the traditional arts of kayaking and drum dancing.
