Greenland cannot be expressed in words. Iceland is much more earthly but our itinerary makes sure you get to experience a more remote Iceland of the West and the North. We could indeed have done this without Greenland, but then going so close to feeling heaven and not feeling it is not what we want to be a part of.

The troll like Hvitserkur rock formation and the fortress of Borgarvirki are also sights to wonder at. Blonduoss literally means the mouth of the river Blanda. It is an ideal place to enjoy a quiet lunch after which we will drive ip north to the peninsula of Siglufjordur. This drive gets as remote as it can in Iceland and on a clear day, you could find icebergs, which have floated all the way from East Greenland. We will arrive in Akureyri for dinner. Akureyri is the second biggest city in Iceland and the capital of the North of Iceland. Our hotel here has facilities which are in sharing.

We will start our morning leisurely with a drive on the highway 1 which is also called the ring road. Our first stop is one of the most spectacular waterfalls in Iceland, Godafoss.

There are direct flights from Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland, to Ilulissat in Greenland and a town which is not reachable from anywhere in EU. We experience the Ice and snow in Greenland as it is much more raw than in Iceland.
To the town of Ilulissat, only 80 people can fly per day. This makes the hotels and other services in this town very exclusively available and therefore expensive. The flight to and from Ilulissat is 1.5 - 2 lakh and more.
June - August is the best time to go here as the waterfalls of Iceland are free-flowing and the glacier arms of Greenland break up into icebergs and are seen floating in front of your hotel in Ilulissat.
This tour needs some amount of physical fitness. A daily walk of 1 - 2 km is expected. Most of the times however the walk is on an uneven path in beautiful locations.
