Iceland and Ilulissat

Greenland & Iceland Travel Service

Iceland & Ilulissat Combined

Two different options - or tailor made

Iceland & Greenland combined

We operate with 2 different Iceland programs easily combined with our tours in Ilulissat, "The Golden Circle & South Greenland" tour and "The Reykjavik based & Ilulissat" tour.

 

The Golden Circle Tour

G&ITS Golden Circle Tour includes overnight stays in both Reykjavik and Geysir. The transfers between Reykjavik and Geysir are operated as guided excursions visiting the national park Thingvellir, Gullfoss Waterfalls and the Greenhouse village Hveragerdir.

 

The Geysir Area

The main attractions in the Geysir area are the Great Geysir and Strokkur (being the most active, erupting every few minutes). The whole area is a geothermal park situated on top of a vast boiling cauldron. Belching sulphurous mud pots of unusual colours, hissing steam vents, hot and cold springs, warm creeks and primitive plants can all be found here. A short distance to the west stands the small Laugarfjall mountain with a panoramic view overlooking the Geysir area.

 

Reykjavik Based

For those who wishes to stay at the same hotel all nights, to enjoy city life and explore South Iceland on day excursions from Reykjavik before going to Greenland. We offer the choice between different hotels while staying overnight in Reykjavik. Please ask for options.

 

"The Town of Icebergs"

Ilulissat is the Greenlandic word for "icebergs" and every visitor will immediately see why. All year round huge icebergs, coming from the Ilulissat glacier, strand just outside town. The glacier is the most productive one in the northern hemisphere with a yearly production of 35 km3 of ice. In 2004 the glacier and the icefjord were listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

 

The Land of the midnight sun

Ilulissat is situated 69°13′ N about 250 kilometres north of the Polar Circle which means that the sun does not go below the horizon from May 21 to July 24. Furthermore Ilulissat has very bright nights during May and start August.

 

No worries

When booking the combined Iceland and Greenland programs with G&ITS you do not have to worry about any troubles in case of flight delays between Greenland and Iceland. Our staff at both destinations will assist, re-book the hotels and see to, that all clients are well informed and feel safe at all times.

 

More nights are optional

It is of course possible to book extension nights both in Iceland and in Greenland. Please call us for assistance.
