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 actually on a small island between rugged shaped mountains and long fjords, and is almost always surrounded by icebergs and bright Arctic Ocean. You will find some of the east coast's most skillful craftsmen, whose tupilaks are of exceptional quality. Hunting and fishing tradition are still the main source for livelihood for many families in the area.

 

You will see huge glaciers and floating icebergs. You can stroll about the village and meet some of the 250 local residents and view their quality crafts.

In the tiny village of Kulusuk you will get a good glimpse of the everyday life on the east coast of Greenland. You can visit a private museum that presents many of the arctic traditions used by the pioneers that inhabited this remote area, visit the beautiful church of Kulusuk, the unforgettable cemetery and if the weather allows see the traditional Inuit drum-dancing show. All in all, a rich presentation of modern life in a remote arctic village on the east coast of Greenland characerized by its Inuit traditions.

On your return flight to Reykjavík you can enjoy a spectacular view over huge glaciers and floating icebergs.

 

Ammassalik is the largest town in East Greenland with about 1,400 residents. It lies just south of the Arctic Circle, boasting long hours of daylight in summer and the splendor of the Northern Lights in winter.

 

The town is beautifully situated in a protective fjord with high mountains on all sides. It is split in two by a river, which flows through the valley of flowers behind the town. This valley has a unique variety of Arctic flora, and is an ideal place for walks of all lengths.

 

Ammassalik is only a 10-minute helicopter ride from Kulusuk, but this short flight is one of the most scenic expeditions imaginable as you cross the ice-filled sea separating these two mountainous islands.

 

Sometimes Ammassalik (or Angmagssalik to use the old Greenland spelling) is called Tasiilaq.  The last one is the original East Greenlandic name for the town.
