Do you only have a few hours to get out on the water near Nuuk? Exploring the Nuuk Fjord is one of the “must do” activities while visiting Greenland’s capital, so don’t miss out with this ½-day trip that takes you around the iconic Sermitsiaq mountain.

Your experienced captain and wilderness guide will be waiting for you at the departure point to welcome you on board for your trip into the world’s second-biggest fjord system.  You can sip on tea or coffee and enjoy the comfort of the heated cabin while watching the scenery slip past through large windows. Or rug up and head outside for unobstructed views of the incredible landscape around Nuuk.  

Some of the most spectacular scenery of the Nuuk fjord can be found quite close to the city, and this 4-hour excursion will take you on a complete circuit around Sermitsiaq with views even further into the fjord.  A highlight is seeing the enormous Sermitsiaq waterfall that cascades over the back of the mountain. Even when it is frozen solid during the winter, it is still an impressive sight!

Depending on the time of year, you may be lucky and see icebergs or whales during the journey. And, if time permits, you can even throw a couple of hand-lines for a bit of fishing!

Seeing the Colonial Harbor and the colorful houses of Nuuk from the water makes for the perfect end to your trip into the Nuuk Fjord, so reserve your place now by selecting your preferred departure date above.
