Is it your dream to sail past icebergs and stand before one of Greenland’s many impressive glaciers? Travel the full length of one of the world’s largest fjord systems to marvel at the Narsap Sermia glacier on this full-day adventure into the Nuuk Icefjord.  

Leaving the harbour, your journey begins by sailing almost all the way around the city of Nuuk.  The colorful buildings soon give way to the impressive Sermitsiaq mountain as you make your way along one of the longest waterways in Greenland.  Sit back in the open boat, relax, and feel the cool arctic air surround you as you glide past the innumerable mountains that separate the different arms of the fjord.

As you get closer to the end of the fjord and the glacier, you will start to sail past icebergs of all different sizes. This is where they are born - cast adrift by the melting glacier face to make their way along the currents and tides towards Nuuk.

Your captain will bring you as close to the glacier as possible while still ensuring your safety, and from there you will bear witness to the world’s second largest icefield and one of its numerous glaciers that drain down to the sea.  Enjoy a cup of tea or coffee while you watch and listen to the silence in a truly remote setting.
