In the fall and early winter, we have some of the densest darkness and the most beautiful northern lights. This period is the least busy months, but you can still go shorter hikes, go on ice fjord cruises, fly helicopters and visit locals. Visit Ilulissat in the autumn for a very authentic Greenlandic experience, and experience the soothing darkness.

From February begins the spring season, which offers winter adventures such as dog sledding, snowmobiling and our popular Igloo Lodge.
