Explore one of the most spectacular parts of the world’s second-largest fjord system on this 2 hour Nuuk Fjord adventure.

Leaving from the Colonial Harbour in the historic area of Nuuk, we will pass a multitude of colourful houses lined up along the shores of the Fjord as we sail North towards the iconic mountain, Sermitsiaq.  Your captain will be on the lookout for seals, whales and other wildlife, and will plot a course to visit any large nearby icebergs en route.

Our adventure takes us around the back-side of Sermitsiaq where an enormous waterfall (frozen solid during the winter) cascades down from the mountain top, and tall mountains further in the fjord come into view.  The shape of the mountain and the views of the fjord as we navigate all the way around Sermitsiaq Island change considerably, so make sure you bring spare batteries and plenty of space on your camera.

Although this tour will take place in a closed, heated boat, we encourage you to dress very warmly as you will want to spend as much time out on deck as possible. This is where you will have the best views. There will also be tea and coffee waiting inside if you need to warm up.

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 :)
