Private Glacier Cruise XL | Nuuk

With the glacier cruise XL, you will get the luxury of visiting an abandoned settlement, only inhabited by the locals of Nuuk in the summer.

Sailing through a ice filled waters, is an action packed ride, as you sail between the majestic ice azures. Stand on deck and enjoy the mesmerizing nature in the presence of arctic wild life, while the arctic winds play with your hair. Nuuk water taxi strives to take you and your fellow explorers as close to the glacier, as safety allows. The stunning glacier, is where the icebergs passing Nuuk, originates from. It is a must to see, when visiting Nuuk, and maybe the last standing chance to see a real life glacier, as the environment change with global warming. Enjoy a well-deserved coffee when overlooking the white and chrystal blue nuanced glacier, while listening to its enchanting soaring. 

The abandoned settlement of Qoornoq provides balm for the soul, as it stands in complete silence. Walk in the foot steps of ancient Inuits and explore the ruins of their homes, be sure to visit the newly restored church. If visiting in the summer, chat with a summer resident and be on the look out for arctic wild life.
