It is also possible to take a guided hike to the Garnet Rock where you clearly will see the many pieces of Garnet (minerals) in the mountain. With a hammer and chisel you will have plenty of time to try to get your own piece of rock to bring home. So far, no one has gone home empty-handed.

Adventure.Having purchased the excursion package, today you will go on a tour of the tundra and the Kangerlussuaq area. Kangerlussuaq offers an incredibly beautiful nature and is home to the massive musk oxen. We will drive through the tundra landscapes in a four-wheel driven truck, and the guide will tell us all about the varied wildlife in this area. If we are lucky, we will get the chance to spot musk oxen and learn more about these incredible creatures. The musk ox lives wildly in the area around Kangerlussuaq and, therefore, it is really difficult to predict whether we will get close to them or observe them from a distance. The guide will bring binoculars, so there is a good chance of seeing these musk oxen and possibly other wildlife.
In the early evening it’s time for you to back to Iceland and maybe enjoy a weekend in Iceland. Remember that Reykjavik is well-known for its pulsating nightlife!
