Run by: Regent Holidays

Reference number: ITN_GRE_011

From: £1250.00

Fly from Reykjavik to Kulusuk and take a helicopter flight on this 2 night short break to East Greenland. Located just south of the Arctic Circle lies Tasiilaq, formerly known as Ammassalik. With around 1,800 inhabitants, Tasiilaq is the only town of any size on Greenland's rugged and isolated East Coast. The town is located in an isolated fjord, only a 12 minute helicopter ride from Kulusuk, but this short flight is one of the most scenic flights imaginable. Fly over the ice-filled sea, rugged mountainous islands, sweeping glaciers and ice-filled fjords. Like many towns in Greenland. Tasiilaq is characterised by its small wooden houses painted in various colours and where old Inuit traditions of hunting and fishing are still maintained.
