Go chase the northern lights just outside the capital! You’ll never know when and where the northern lights appear, but you can assume that it might show up at any moment in the evening when there sky is clear. After the midnight sun in the summer, the winter evenings are dark, and in the Nuuk area it’ll get dark early and the daylight will come late in the morning. This only means the winter is here and you've started looking up to the sky, for there may be dancing northern lights! You’ll be welcomed by an experienced captain and a well-organized guide. During the trip, the professional guide will tell you a little about Greenlandic culture and the local perception of the Northern Lights. There are hundreds of fjords throughout the Greenlandic coast, each with their own unique characteristics. Near Nuuk is the second largest fjord system in the world with great opportunities for sailing adventures! There are many optional activities in the fjord all year round. The captain will start the venture out to find northern lights, you have to get away from the city so you can enjoy watching the northern lights without being disturbed by light pollution.

So join this 2-hour winter sailing to chase the Northern Lights and take your warmest clothes on! Hats, mittens, trousers, etc., cause the boat stops so you can go outside when you no longer can see the city. After (hopefully) seeing the Northern Lights and having heard what the guide had to tell, it's time to head home again and on the way back to Nuuk you will be inside the boat where you get some tea or coffee, it cannot get more cozy!
