The gate to East Greenland starts at the scenic Kulusuk airport. Probably, one of the world’s most scenic airports.
This is how it looks from above as we approach Kulusuk:
From the airport, you don’t have to go too far to get good views. Just step outside the airport and you can see icebergs scattered all around you. All these pictures below are near the airport:
Air Iceland flight from Reykjavik. Most of the people on the flight were just on a day tour to Kulusuk, which Air Iceland organizes. I would strongly recommend going to Tasiilaq. How can you return from here? 🙂
Local Boat Transfer from Kulusuk Airport to Tasiilaq:
There are only two ways to go from Kulusuk to Tasiilaq – heicopter or boat. You can book the helicopter through Air Greenland website. But if you are looking for a boat transfer from Kulusuk to Tasiilaq, then you could either ask the accommodation/hotel you are staying in Tasiilaq and ask them to arrange the transfer or you can ask a local fisherman in Kulusuk. I tried the 2nd option and luckily I met someone at Kulusuk airport, who agreed to take me to to Tasiilaq for 400 dkk.
P.S – Remember there are no helicopter services on Sunday.
