Iceland and South Greenland

South Iceland & South Greenland Combined

In the wake of the Vikings

Viking ship in Eric's Fjord

 South Iceland & South Greenland Combined

This programme is a wake of the Vikings - Eric the Red and his son Leif Ericson when they travelled from Iceland to find the new country which Eric named "Greenland".

Included are excursions to  UNESCO Heritage sites both in Iceland and Greenland.


 

Iceland

Overnight stay in central Reykjavik with free time to explore this exciting city and maybe visit museums such as the "Saga Museum".

But the programme  also includes  the most popular and "must do" excursion, The Golden Circle, which will include a visit to UNESCO Heritage Site Thingvellir National Park where the Vikings meet for their anual "Thing" already from year 930.

                              Greenland

Narsarsuaq is the airport and gateway into South Greenland and is conveniently located in short reach of the historic sites from the Viking periode:

Qassiarsuk (Eric the Red's Farm Brattahlid) and village Igaiku (Gardar, the religious heart of 12th-century Norse Greenland).

The programme includes of course excursions to both sites.


 

   No worries 

When booking the combined Iceland and Greenland programs with G&ITS you do not have to worry about  any troubles in case of flight delays between Greenland and Iceland. Our staff at both destinations will assist, re-book the hotels and see to, that all clients are well informed and feel safe at all times.
