Awarded the world's best Luxury Adventure Hotel by Tatler Magazine in 2019, this tipi camp is set amongst the wilderness of western Greenland, offering a true immersion into nature alongside a luxurious and exclusive experience.
On this exclusive and adventurous Western Greenland safari, you'll wake up a stones throw from rugged, misty coastlines and delve into dazzling bays and fjords complete with natural ice sculptures and Arctic wildlife. Explore this area by kayak or on foot on one of the many hikes available, photograph waterfalls, wildflowers, look out for muskox and whales, or simply gaze in awe at one of the large icebergs floating past. Camp Kiattua, only accessible by boat or helicopter, makes for the perfect base for a truly wild arctic experience, without compromising on luxury.
Upon arrival into Iceland, transfer to your accommodation and check-in. If time allows we recommend an excursion to the spectacular Blue Lagoon, where you can soak in the warm waters and enjoy your surroundings. Alternatively, you can head into the centre of Reykjavik and explore the city by foot! Get a restful night before catching your connecting flight tomorrow!
Due to the limited number of flights to Nuuk, we recommend arriving in Iceland the day before your glamping adventure begins. Connecting flights between Iceland and Nuuk operate on Monday, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday. This flight will be arranged for you but it is important to consider this when looking at possible travel dates.
Please note depending on the airline of your connecting flight, you may be departing from either the International (Keflavik) or Domestic (Reykjavik) Airport. Accommodation and transfers will be arranged accordingly.
From Nuuk, you will be met by a representative who will assist you with your luggage and take you on a tour of the smallest capital in the world! After your tour of Nuuk, your guide will take time to brief you on your upcoming adventure to Kiattua Bay. Your luggage will be repacked into waterproof duffels prior to being transferred to the boat where you begin your journey into the remote fjords and mountains. Whilst you cruise into one of the largest fjord systems in the world, keep a look out for humpback whales, which frequent these waters. As you are navigated past vast icebergs, it is time to appreciate your surroundings. Once you reach shore you will be welcomed and assisted to your tipi, which will be your home for the next four nights. The rest of the day is yours to settle in and explore, with the option to embark on a short hike to a stunning waterfall.
Overnight: Camp Kiattua (D)
Awake in your luxury tipi to the sounds of lapping water on the shore. Enjoy a hearty breakfast prepared by the chef whilst you take in your stunning surroundings. Once breakfast is finished you will be ready to enjoy the custom activities you have chosen to fill days 3 to 5 of your adventure. You are free to do as much or as little as you wish, however a few of the activities to choose from include taking a boat cruise to the Kapisillit area where you can immerse yourself into the Inuit way of life and try your hand at a spot of traditional fishing! For the slightly more adventurous there is the option to complete different hikes or scrambles – there is something to suit everyone! If you would rather take to the skies, for an additional cost, why not take a helicopter tour to the mighty ice cap and Norse ruins. However, if you plan to just kick back and relax in this unique setting then the hot tub is available. As the day draws to a close enjoy your dinner in the dining tent before retiring to your private tipi. If you are lucky you may even witness a meteor shower!
Overnight: Camp Kiattua (B, L, D)
Today signals your final day at Camp Kiattua. As the sun rises over the majestic mountains, enjoy a leisurely breakfast before your boat departs taking you back to civilisation. Just because you are on your way back to Nuuk doesn’t mean your adventure is over! It is likely you will spot some wildlife on your return journey including whales and seals. Once you have safely arrived back in Nuuk you will be transferred to either your hotel or the airport depending on your onward travel plans.
