Up on the Ice Sheet: The Ice Sheet is perhaps the most important landscape feature in Greenland and a world-class attraction.
Kangerlussuaq is a good starting point from which to experience the ice due to the fact that, unusually for Greenland, a road leads directly from Kangerlussuaq to the edge of the ice.
Enjoy a trip that enables you to hike on the Ice Sheet itself.
Camp ice cap: Albatros Arctic Circle offers an overnight tour exploring the ice-sculptured surroundings of Kangerlussuaq.
You will drive through Greenlandic tundra and moraine valley landscapes before following the footsteps of famous explorers by setting up camp by the Greenland Ice Sheet.
The next day, hike on the ice towards the famous Russell Glacier.
Do-it-yourself: It is possible to stay at the simple ‘Old Camp’ hostel or other options in Greenland and create your own tailored adventure from there. Opt for a visit to the local museum located next to the airport, or go hiking, biking, or even hunting for rubies nearby Greenland’s longest fjord, Kangerlussuaq.
