East Greenland holidays

Tasiilaq, East, Greenland
Anders-Stenbakken, Visit Greenland

Settlements in this sparsely inhabited region are almost entirely limited to the Tasiilaq (Ammassalik) area. Tasiilaq is the largest community and the administration centre.

Reached by helicopter transfer from Kulusuk (flights from Iceland arrive/depart from here), it has become the centre for dog sledging trips in early spring. Huskies are often tethered outside the colourful wooden homes of the local people and their howls leave no doubt as to what part of the world you are in.

In both Tasiilaq and Kulusuk, as well as in the outlying settlements, traditional fishing, hunting and carving methods are still used. The scenery is, in a word, stunning, whether you choose to visit in the spring or in summer when the pack ice has melted and the fjords are filled with icebergs of all shapes and sizes. Easily reached by air from Iceland, a visit to East Greenland makes an excellent add-on to an Iceland holiday. It is also a splendid destination in its own right, with excursions available by boat, jeep and helicopter, as well as an array of hiking possibilities.
