Discover Greenland’s history and culture small group tours for seniors

Our Discover Greenland’s history and culture small group tours for seniors  lets travellers experience one of the world's most picturesque lands. Greenland is the largest island in the world, with the vast majority of its landmass lying above the Arctic Circle.  Few places are quite so difficult to reach. Discover Greenland is a short tour. We have been at great pains to ensure that our travellers get to experience this breathtaking island.  On this short tour, travellers receive the most comprehensive overview of this vast landmass, an autonomous region of Denmark. To maximise the learning experience and to Discover Greenland’s history and culture, the tour includes a visit to the astonishingly picturesque towns of Kulusuk and Tasiilaq. We experience amazing views from helicopter, the best method of transport to access these difficult to reach but marvellous locations. We visit during the summer months and can thus experience the burst of seasonal flora that caused the early voyagers to name it Greenland.
