Trips to Sisimiut/Ilulissat
Sisimiut is an inviting town with picturesque colored houses. It is located on the west coast of Greenland and offers boat tours to the icebergs and with a little bit of luck you can observe whales and seals. In the mountains close to the city there are great hiking opportunities and the vicinity to the ocean promises breathtaking views. To get to Sisimiut you require a short flight from Kangerlussuaq or you combine your trip with a dog sled trip in the winter season.
Ilulissat is one of the most famous cities in Greenland. It is located at the mouth of the 60 km long ice fjord which was declared a UNESCO-World heritage site in 2004. The close ice and the beautiful Disco-bay make it one of the most visited towns of Greenland. The Disco-bay is one of Greenland’s largest bays and its deep blue color and many icebergs offer a breathtaking experience all year around. Boat trips to the ice are definitely recommended but also fishing tours in the rich waters can be organized. Sometimes you can already observe seals and whales from your hotel window.
