Ilulissat is a town of beauty for the body and soul, and is North Greenland’s centre of culture, transport and administration. Every town has a claim to fame, and in Ilulissat it is the icebergs, without a doubt.

It’s enterprising and inviting, traditional and modern, in addition to which the area is blessed by scenery that can take the breath away of even the most seasoned traveller. The Arctic explorer Knud Rasmussen was born and bred in Ilulissat, he’s famous for courage and determination that characterised his perilous expeditions.

Ilulissat is really lively and the people seem to be happy. The town is both pleasant and active: Museums, life at the harbour, the church and urban life with cafés, restaurants and a disco.

Greenland’s capital Nuuk is a city of vitality, surrounded by immense nature and filled with vibrant Greenlanders leading fascinating lives of old traditions, modern twists, and diverse influences.

The nature that surrounds Nuuk is characterized by the sun spreading life and nourishment during summer, and the green northern lights dancing across Arctic sky, giving renewed energy during the dark winter evenings.

Nuuk is a vibrant city where the traditional and modern are mixed. The downtown buzzes with cozy cafes, boutiques and the striking Katuaq Cultural Center, while the Old Harbour area shows the city’s traditional side with colorful houses and historical attractions.

Birmingham is a fantastic city to explore, full of culture. Excellent restaurants, great shopping, exciting nightlife and an architectural icon give an epic perceptions of the city. Last but not least, the landscape that inspired J.R.R. Tolkien to write "The Lord of the Rings."

A stroll is a great way to discover Birmingham. There’s so much to see. The city is full of open and inviting pedestrianised areas. So it’s easy to take a relaxed saunter around the compact centre with attractions, shops and places to eat and drink.

Birmingham is home to many past and present rock bands including Ocean Colour Scene, Duran Duran, ELO, Dodgy, UB40, and Black Sabbath.

London is a diverse and exciting city with some of the world's best sights, attractions and activities. For all that is changing, London has retained the classic elements that set it apart from every other city in the world.

It's a city that makes it very easy to connect, sit down, talk to people and get back in touch with them immediately. The follow-up with people who live in London is superior to just about anywhere else in the world, it’s also the most culturally diverse city in the world.

On every street corner, there's different food, different nationalities and different people. From ancient icons like the Tower of London to more recent phenomena like Adele, this sprawling wonder of humanity has a near endless string of attractions.

The charm of this city is that, despite being the largest in northern France, it doesn’t behave like a grand French city. Lille is a prosperous place, with a quaint old core filled with chic boutiques, luxury food shops and superior restaurants specialising in northern French cuisine.

The outdoor cafés of its central “places” are all time buzzing, while the slow-moving traffic is patient. The town is also home to the Palais des Beaux-Arts, widely touted in France as second only to the Louvre.

Thanks to the Eurostar and the TGV, Lille makes an easy, environmentally sustainable weekend destination from London, Paris, Brussels.
