About Us - Greenland Is Our Playground

We are experts on all things Greenland and know the country from north to south. Every village and town. Every mountain peak and fjord. When traveling to Greenland, our attention to detail and understanding of a complex travel destination make us the greatest travel partner for the adventurous traveler. We know the culture inside and out, and we care about the community and support social programs.

Purchasing a vacation is a question of trust, and we are doing everything we can to ensure that you have a pleasant experience. We keep in touch with our Greenlandic partners and stay current on lodging standards and product development to always give you the finest recommendations. In addition, when creating new tours, we consider input from former clients, tour guides, and test trips.

Your Security

We are a Danish Travel Agency Association member and an IATA agent, which is your guarantee for a serious and reliable travel agency. So naturally, we are also a member of the Danish Travel Guarantee Fund.


Arctic Excursions is a member of IATA (International Air Transport Association) through Greenland Travel. As a certified IATA agent, the agency must comply with financial requirements regarding solvency and liquidity and strict training requirements for our staff. In addition, membership means that Greenland Travel is authorized to issue tickets to most airlines globally.

The Danish Travel Agency Association

Naturally, we are a Danish Travel Agency Association (DRF) member. To become a Danish Travel Agency Association member, we must meet several criteria for professional skills and finances. Therefore, it is a quality stamp for you as a consumer to know that your travel agency is a member of DRF. As a member, we have, among other things, taken out compulsory extended liability insurance, which ensures that you as a consumer receive a compensation sum paid out if you have incurred an injury for which the organizer/agency is responsible. Furthermore, membership of the DRF means that we are obliged to fulfill orders from the Appeals Board for Package trips in Denmark (Pakkerejse-Ankenævnet) if we have not been able to agree with you about a complaint. Naturally, we strive to ensure that this does not happen.

We are part of a unique value chain: Air Greenland Group. In addition to Air Greenland and Greenland Travel, the Air Greenland Group consists of Hotel Arctic in Ilulissat, World of Greenland, and Arctic Excursions.
