12D9N Greenland Summer
What kind of experience is it to be forgotten by the world? Greenland, which is deep in the Arctic Circle, can make you experience this feeling every minute. There are no human fireworks here, and there are glaciers and mysterious no man’s land everywhere. In addition to seeing the glaciers that fell to the bottom of the sea in an instant, you can also feel the villages after the disappearance of the Eskimos. The most incredible thing is the midnight in summer when the sun soars into the sky.
- Midnight Sun – A sun that never sets.
- Disko Bay – On the west coast of Greenland lies the spectacular Disko Bay, a region renowned for its imposing glaciers and glistening icebergs. The average 25m tall of icebergs is stunning to witness.
- Whale Watching – Set sail and look for as many as fifteen species of whales that hang around Disko Bay, with
humpbacks, minkes and fins being the most common sightings – the sight of a whale leaping out of
the water is unforgettable.
- Eqi Glacier – 83% of Greenland’s area is covered by ten-thousand-year ice sheets. IIn spring and summer, due to
the rising temperature and the pressure of the upstream glaciers, icebergs will disintegrate at the outlet
of the sea. The Eich Glacier is one of the most frequent iceberg calving glaciers in North Greenland!
- Ilulissat – Ilulissat is the third largest town, with a population of about 4,500. It locates 250 km north of the Arctic Circle. Ilulissat is the most popular tourist location in Greenland and is the only town in the world surrounded by Icefjord. In 2004, the Ilulissat Icefjord was inscribed as an UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Travel to the second largest ice sheet in the world - the Greenland Ice Sheet
- Today, head to the second largest ice sheet in the world – the Greenland Ice Sheet. In the past, only professional scientific expedition personnel had the opportunity to visit the Greenland ice sheet, which accounts for 83% of Greenland's area. Today, our guide takes us to this pure white world and lets us stand on many feet of ice! We took a special vehicle, passing through continuous mountains, plains, and semi-desert valleys, to the Greenland ice sheet 30 kilometers away. Here is an endless ice field, filled with crystal clear blue streams, waterfalls and lakes formed by the water from melting ice. It is also the starting point for Arctic explorers crossing the Greenland ice sheet. The return journey passes through magnificent glaciers where we have the chance to meet arctic deer and other arctic animals.

The Ilulissat Icefjord is one of the most active glaciers in the Northern Hemisphere and one of the most beautiful natural landscapes in Greenland and the world. Since 1850, humans have systematically observed changes in the Ilulissat Glacier, providing scientists with valuable information for studying global climate change. In June 2021, the Ilulissat Icefjord Center was completed and opened to the public. The Icefjord Center is integrated with the surrounding magnificent natural landscape. It is the best place for tourists, locals and climate researchers to observe the Icefjord . The Icefjord Center records the story of glaciers and the history of Greenland. The exhibition area and cinema in the center display precious films and related materials on the impact of climate change on glaciers.

- 83% of Greenland's area is covered by ten-thousand-year ice sheets. In the narrow fjords, there are many glaciers connected to the sea. In spring and summer, due to the rising temperature and the pressure of the upstream glaciers, icebergs will disintegrate at the outlet of the sea. , 80 kilometers north of Ilulissat, the Eich Glacier is one of the most frequent glacier calving icebergs in North Greenland.
