      Ilulissat in Late September

      Greenland Aug 5, 2016 at 11:56 PM

      My wife and I will go to Ilulissat at the end of September this year. When we looked at the website of World of Greenland previously, it mentioned that the day tour to Eqip will be last to the end of September. Then we bought the air-tickets and book the accommodation which we will arrive Ilulissat from Copenhagen on 26/9 and fly back on 30/9. However, when I email to WoG to ask the details, they mentioned that the day tour to Eqip will end a little bit earlier. I have also sent emails to few other companies, their replies are similar. After that, I have browsed a lot of travel notes and travel blogs of other travelers who went Ilulissat these few years, they mentioned that they joined this tour even when they traveled Ilulissat in late September or even mid October. Anyone know how we can join the day tour to Eqip between 27/9-29/9. Many thanks in advance. I also checked with Ilulisaat Water Taxi, it is possible to book a private water taxi for 9900dkk for maximum 6 people. Any one interest to join?

      A day-trip from Reykjavik to Kulusuk in Greenland. Booking beforehand or not?

      Kulusuk May 19, 2015 at 8:04 AM

      Hi Everybody,
      I will travel to Iceland, Reykjavik the last week in August, and I would like to take a day-trip from Reykjavik to Kulusuk in Greenland. Does anybody know if I need to book the trip long time beforehand, or if there will be enough availability if I book it once I am in Reykjavik for the next day? I am a bit worried about the weather, and think it is safer to book the trip after having checked the weather forecast.
      Thank you in advance for your answers:-D

      Hi fellows!
      We live in Barcelona. Our idea is to visit Faroe Islands the end of May (23 to 3 June), flying to Faroe via Copenhague . I should like to visit Greeland, perhaps 3 days, flying again from Copenhagen, but I am not sure if to stay in Kangerlus o Nuuk or other place. The fligths arrive first in Kanger.
      Any case the experience don't seem very exciting, but Greenland is an iconic island.
      May you advise me, please.
      My name in TAdv. is " Llampec "

    • Weather in late-Feb/early-March

      Greenland Aug 7, 2014 at 2:12 AM

      Will Disko Bay be frozen at this time or will iceberg cruises be possible? And how many hours of daylight will there be?

      We would prefer to travel in winter, but are wondering if late-Feb is too early (although it is difficult for us to travel later than end-Feb or perhaps early March).

      Hello, I am visiting Nuuk for the first time next week for two days. I won't be leaving the city. I was wondering if anyone had any advice with regards to clothing? Should I take a big heavy arctic coat and waterproof walking boots? Or do the locals move around fine with a normal jacket and shoes? Thanks!

      Hi Guys,

      I am planning a trip to greenland, can anyone recommend a good guide book?

      I have tried in vain to get the lonely planet greenland and arctic guidebook published in 2005, but they are too expensive second hand.

      Perhaps someone can recommend an alternative, or maybe has a copy of the LP guide they would be willing to sell?

      Thanks in advance for your help,

    • Visiting Nuuk and Nanortalik at the beginning of September, 2011

      Greenland May 3, 2011 at 12:35 PM

      Sorry,this is a repeat, I posted it in another forum by mistake.

      Cruising to Nuuk and Nanortalik, GreenlandPosted: Mon May 2, 2011 09:00 PM EDT Hi,
      My friends and I will be cruising to these 2 cities at the beginning of September. As you can imagine, I have a lot of questions as to what to expect. I am very excited about visiting Greenland, so any info about either of these ports would be greatly appreciated.

      We will be spending 9AM to 6PM in Nuuk. Any suggestions as to how to get around, and if there are other interesting things to see out of the city. Can you get private tours with a taxi or van? How about shopping? And what special things should I look for to purchase (I love to shop on my vacations to find special items that represent the country i am visiting.)

      We will be visiting Nanortalik from 7AM to 4PM. I understand that there are no tours available from our ship and that the towns people present programs for the visitors. Once again, is there something I should see outside of the city that I would be able to get to easily. I love to look at scenery and special points of interest.

      Any information or help that you could give me I would truly appreciate. I know weather is unpredictable, but should I bring a winter jacket and gloves?

      Thanks-you so much. Linda
