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.
We recommend that all travelers wear good walking boots (this tour requires around 3 km/1.8 miles walk). Bring warm clothes, you will find that the weather's changeableness can be quite charming when visiting Greenland.
