Chase the dancing Northern Lights and explore every corner of Greenland's capital city on this 2-hour nighttime tour in Nuuk. Join us as we drive you to the darkest places in the city for panoramic views of one of the highlights of the Arctic winter. During the tour, your local guide will tell you a little about Nuuk and the Northern Lights, and is always happy to answer your questions about Greenland. Unavoidable fact: it is likely to be chilly. It is the Arctic winter after all! Our transportation is heated and you can always retreat inside if you get too cold, but make sure you bring heavy outer layers, a woollen hat, scarf, and gloves/mittens so you can stay outside as much as possible. We will also warm you up with a hot chocolate during the tour. It is important to remember that the Northern lights are unpredictable and may not appear during the tour. If you are unlucky and don't get to see them on the tour, we will rebook you on another night for FREE!
