Become a fisherman for a day and hop on board, this tour takes you around the surrounding seas of the capital! Greenland is known for its unbelievably stunning nature and vast and rich seas, but Nuuk offers extraordinary opportunities for sailing and fishing.

Greenland's largest income comes from the fishing industry, and on this tour, you will understand why! Even though, the lives of the modern Inuit are dominated by a modern lifestyle, being in nature is still an essential necessity for the Greenlandic people. Fishing is enjoyed by all ages, from small children to the elderly. And we promise you will love it, just as much! You will not only come home with an extraordinary experience, but you will also come home with your freshly caught fish.

The captain knows the surrounding seas of the capital, like the palm of his own hands. So it is on forehand promised, that you will be fishing in the richest waters. Experienced or not, deep fishing is for all. The captain and guide will bring the gear and take care of your freshly caught cod or Acadian redfish.

In between catching fish and sailing, there will be time to enjoy the majestic nature of Nuuk fjord with a hot cup of coffee! During the tour, the guide will tell you all about the fjord and if you are lucky, you might meet one of the many icebergs, calving from the Narsap Sermia Glacier. The icebergs are amazingly beautiful with their white and blue colours - the boat will stop at the most beautiful iceberg,  so you can capture it through your camera lens!

The sea doesn’t freeze in the winter and there is enough fish all year round, so this tour is available at any time! Bring your warmest hat and your camera. Press "Choose a date" above and book your tour today.
