Sit under the sky, on this adventure into the fjords of Nuuk!

Nuuk Fjord is famous for its majestic mountains, fjord scenery, and abundant wildlife. Venture under the open sky, into the veins of the fjord and explore untouched mountain sides. Feel the arctic winds play with your hair while you enjoy the mesmerizing views.

We sail around the iconic mountain Sermitsiaq, named for the small glacier under its peak.  Glacier meltwater tumbles down its side, creating a waterfall which we will visit on the way. Let the spray touch your face, and we will see if we can get some water from thousands of years ago to drink.

The cruise around the mountain will take you to one of the best hunting and fishing grounds in the fjord. We will be on the lookout for seals, whales and eagles that frequent this area.  There are also very good chances of seeing icebergs all year round. The arctic winds and weather decide the route of the day, and the captain will choose the best experiences for the day.

This tour is on an open boat which is specially made for the Greenlandic conditions, and is one of the favorites among local hunters and fishermen.

We had such a great tour! I do not think you have experienced Nuuk properly if you haven't been on a boat tour. This tour is perfect if you have a busy schedule or just a short stay in Nuuk. It was only two hours, but we got to see some beautiful nature and the captain was really nice and telling stories about the places we saw. The tour was in an open boat, but we all got survival suits, so we could stay nice and warm. Super service! I would recommend this tour to everyone :)
