Trip to see Northern Lights in tiny Inuit villages
At the end of August, the daylight hours are reducing in Greenland,  and dark nights bring the most spectacular and brilliant phenomenon of nature, the Northen Lights.
We will make some routes by boat and on foot in the remote East Greenland coast through the biggest fjords of Angmagssalik. Easy hiking on tundra, along lakes and the Great Greenland polar icecap, the second biggest ice mass on Earth. Visit tiny villages almost uninhabited. Chances of sighting whales, seals, polar bears and other arctic wildlife.
Route through stunning glaciers sailing inside the Blue Diamond Bay flooded with bright cobalt blue icebergs. Probably one of the most complete and varied trip you can make in Greenland nowadays.
