Info:

Enjoy three days exploring beautiful East Greenland. The highlights of this tour include helicopter rides with majestic views over granite mountains, glaciers and icebergs, and a stay in the village of Ammassalik – which many is consider one of Greenland’s most scenic villages. Many exciting excursions are available locally, such as iceberg cruises, guided walks and helicopter rides. Ammassalik, known to local residents as Tasiilaq, is a village of about 1,400 residents, making it the largest village in East Greenland. Ammassalik is only a 10-minute helicopter ride from Kulusuk, but this short flight is one of the most spectacular expeditions imaginable, as you cross the ice-filled sea separating these two mountainous islands. The town of Ammassalik lies just south of the Arctic Circle and boasts long hours of daylight in the summer. Kulusuk island is situated west of the entrance to the stunning Ammassalik fjord. In the area around the fjord is the main settlement of the Ammassalik Inuit, who were unknown to the rest of the world until 1884. Now more than 2,000 Greenlanders live in the Ammassalik district, earning their living by fishing and seal hunting.
