Go on a beautiful sailing tour to the incredible Apusiaajik glacier, where we might be lucky enough to see it calve, sending icebergs out into the fjord.

Starting from the harbour in Tasiilaq we’ll sail north of Kulusuk to the glacier front itself. We’ll spend a little time here listening to sounds of the glacier that might turn into a thundering roar if it suddenly calves. From here we’ll move on to the settlement of Kuummiit, where we’ll get off so you can it explore it on your own. Kuummiit translates to “the people from the river”. The settlement only has about 300 inhabitants, so you can get a good impression of the village in a short while.

From Kuummiit we’ll continue sailing into a narrow fjord known as Ikaasaluaq. Sailing along this fjord makes you feel tiny with the high mountain peaks on each side with several glaciers creeping down the valleys. We’ll sail close to another glacier known as Apuseerajik and go ashore to enjoy lunch with the most incredible views. We’ll spend about 2 hours here before it’s time to head back to Tasiilaq.

Whenever we’re sailing it’s a good idea to keep a lookout for the wildlife in the area, you can find seals and several species of whales if we’re lucky.
