Travel Guide

Kulusuk showing mountains, snow and a lake or waterhole

Stop over or stay a while at the gateway to East Greenland, where icebergs, fjords, glaciers and the resilient culture of the Greenlandic Inuit await.

Discover life on the edge of the Arctic Circle in Kulusuk, a town on an island of the same name. Plunging fjords, grassy valleys, majestic glaciers and a mosaic of icebergs make up the landscape of this remote township, offering an experience of traditional Arctic life. Embark on extreme hiking or kayaking adventures or reflect on the magnificent landscapes with breathtaking sightseeing tours. Learn about local hunting culture and spot flashes of color in the sky as the northern lights ripple overhead.

Kulusuk is a small settlement dotted with traditional Greenlandic houses looking out to the Denmark Strait. The town is ideal for basing your expedition to the remote landscapes of East Greenland. Stay a while in Kulusuk to experience local culture, including traditional storytelling and drum dancing.

Join a plane or helicopter tour and see a dazzling aerial view of Sermilik fjord and its active glaciers. Cruise past ice floes on a boat tour around the Denmark Strait and spot polar bears and Arctic birdlife. Next to the vast Sermilik fjord, explore the traditional settlement of Tiniteqilaaq and join a dog-sled expedition across the snow.

Head to Ammassalik Island to visit the largest town in this isolated region, Tasiilaq, to plan your adventure amid the island’s mountains, valleys and lakes. From here, you can embark on whale-watching tours to see migrating minke and humpback whales between July and September. Learn about life on the outposts of the Arctic Circle at the Ammassalik Museum and find out about the local customs of the region’s hunters and fishers.

Try local specialties, including dried cod and suaasat, a local variety of seal soup. In June, listen for three cannon shots that announce the festivities celebrating the first shipment of fresh fruit and vegetables for the year.

Kulusuk Airport has connections to Tasiilaq, just 10 minutes away, and Nuuk. Reykjavik Airport is 2 hours away by plane. The island is located in southeastern Greenland. Visit between June and September to enjoy longer daylight hours. Long, dark nights are common in winter, but if the conditions are right, you might see a night sky streaked with aurora borealis lights.
