Want to travel the entire length of the Nuuk Icefjord to witness the incredible Narsap Sermia glacier spilling down off the massive Greenland Icesheet? Make your glacier experience even more adventurous by doing so in a small open boat designed specifically for the Greenlandic environment.

Rug up and sit under the open sky as your experienced captain sets a course that will take you past many of the impressive mountains that shape the Nuuk Fjord. The Greenlandic hunters often travel in exactly this way, allowing them to range further afield while still experiencing the raw environment.

Enjoy the spectacular scenery as you cruise past the icebergs that have broken off the glacier and are now making their way down towards Nuuk.  Some of them will make it the whole way and survive to see the city. Others will not.

The highlight of this excursion is to stand before the mighty Narsap Sermia glacier and marvel at its beautiful white and crystal blue face. Your captain will take you as close as possible while still keeping you safe, and you can sip on hot tea and coffee while you drink in the sight of one of Greenland’s many endangered glaciers.  

Pack your warmest clothes, your camera, and your binoculars, and reserve your place on this extensive boat tour up the Nuuk Fjord by selecting your preferred date above.
