This was something unplanned. Since I had saved some money from the Sermilik boat trip and accommodation, I thought of treating myself with an helicopter ride from Tasiilaq to Kulusuk.
This is the definitely the best way to enjoy the aerial views of the icebergs. I had never been on an helicopter before and was very excited about this. And it didn’t disappoint. The views were spectacular and those massive icebergs looked like tiny pieces of ice from above.
Some pictures from the ride:
You can book this flight through the Air Greenland website. Air Greenland has a tendency of rescheduling your flights and especially these helicopter rides. My ride was preponed by an hour and luckily I got to know it because I checked my e-mail a day before. But I don’t think most of us will be using internet in Greenland considering how expensive they are (30 kr – 1/2 hr, 50 kr – 1 hr @Travellodge). I mentioned this to the Air Greenland staff and they said it wasn’t a big deal; they would have adjusted me in the next ride. But it is a little risky especially when you have another flight to catch from Kulusuk.
