Two Air Zafari planes flying over the Greenland Ice Sheet near Kangerlussuaq, Greenland

Scenic Flights

Flying much lower than a commercial plane, flightseeing (a dedicated scenic flight) is the ultimate way to experience a destination and gain a unique perspective of the area you are visiting.

In the Arctic Circle region, scenic flights from Kangerlussuaq range from 25 minutes to 2.5 hours and take in several key attractions which may include: the town of Kangerlussuaq, Russell Glacier, Point 660, the Greenland Ice Sheet, Navigator’s Rock, Desert Valley, Paradise Valley, and spotting musk oxen and reindeer from the air.

Flights generally operate as low as legally allowed (in some areas, below the level of the mountain tops), and every passenger has a window seat for a clear view. Treat yourself to a birds-eye view of arctic tundra and Ice Cap.
