Nuuk — 2 nights

Home to a quarter of the nation's population, Nuuk represents the nation's cultural and economic center and holds the title as the world's smallest and northernmost capital.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Katuaq Cultural Centre. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Greenland National Museum and Archives and Nuuk Art Museum. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Hans Egedes hus and Prince Christian Sound. There's still lots to do: make a trip to Qornok and take in the architecture and design of University of Greenland.

Quickly create a custom-made itinerary for Nuuk using our trip planner.

San Diego, USA to Nuuk is an approximately 25-hour flight. You'll lose 5 hours traveling from San Diego to Nuuk due to the time zone difference. Traveling from San Diego in June, expect Nuuk to be much colder, temps between 48°F and 36°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Sat) so you can fly to Ilulissat.

Specialty Museums · Geologic Formations · Nature & Parks
An autonomous Danish territory, Greenland combines the power of Mother Nature with some of the most stunning scenery in the world. A trip to Greenland takes you to the planet's largest non-continental island, with the sparsest population in the world. Don't let that stop you from choosing a holiday in Greenland, the perfect chance to discover small towns and photogenic villages known for their colorful wooden cottages. The improving tourist network includes many hotels and hostels, as well as a slew of tour operators providing exiting outdoor activities.
