    Almost immediately, you will understand why the fjord is included in the tour. The fjord is known for its remarkable arctic landscape, with lakes of all sizes and shapes, sky-high mountain peaks, boisterous waterfalls, luscious valleys and spell-binding glaciers.

    It is a once in a lifetime chance, to experience Ammasalik – this is an Arctic landscape that compares to no other.

    From Ammassalik we enter the Ikasagtivaq fjord. The deep fjord will lead you to the small settlement of Tinitiqilaa. We will be stopping in Tinitiqilaa for two hours, and eat lunch by the ice fjord. The shores of the Icefjord will not only host you for lunch. Capture the countless icebergs with your camera, the icebergs create a scenery of white icebergs contrasting to the dark blue waters of the fjord.

    Tinitiqilaa means the well that dries out at low tide and is situated on a small peninsula between Sermilik and Ikkaasagitivaq fjord. The settlement has approximately 110 inhabitants and walking through the settlement will give you an insight into what life is like, in the hidden corners of Greenland.

Nearby the village, you will find an old American airbase. The airbase creates beautiful contrasts to the multicoloured tundra and its peaky mountains. The airbase was founded after WW II and were abandoned when Kulusuk Airport was established. It is quite fascinating roaming around the abandoned buildings.

    Next destination of the day, is the highlight of the day: Knud Rasmussen’s Glacier. When arriving at the glacier you will be met by a huge glacier wall and surrounding you are crystal blue icebergs.

The landscape is dotted with small colourful wooden houses, creating distinctive and picturesque scenery. Nearby the settlement are the two massive glaciers, Knud Rasmussen and Karale glacier, that creates an even more magical landscape. The glaciers are known as “the worlds largest ice machines’’, due to its calving icebergs. The glacial activity releases sediments, giving the fjord a very unique milky blue colour.
