Day Tour To Kulusuk, East Greenland

Less than two hour flight from Reykjavík will take us to Greenland's beautiful East Coast, home of the Ammassalik Inuit.

Kulusuk is the gateway to East Greenland and the small settlement is an excellent introduction to the way of life in a settlement in the Ammassalik area. Kulusuk lies on a small rocky island between saw-toothed mountains and extensive fjords, and it is almost always surrounded by icebergs and a glittering Arctic Ocean.

In Kulusuk you will find some of the east coast's most skilful craftsmen, whose tupilaks are of exceptional quality. Traditional hunting and fishing are still essential sources of income for many families in the settlement.
