A gourmet get-away is what to be explored on this 6-hour catch 'n' eat excursion to the settlement of Qooqqut. You will be catching your own dinner and eat your self-caught fish at a four-star restaurant!

Qooqqut Nuan is a four-star restaurant, located deep into Nuuk fjord, in an abandoned settlement. The restaurant is a must-do when visiting Nuuk, and is cherished among locals for its delicious sea-food dishes. 

Your extraordinary dining experience starts at the colonial harbour and takes you to Qooqqut. You will be welcomed onboard our closed cabin boat, and get equipped with a lifejacket. Once you are seated, the captain will set the course towards Qooqqut Bay. 

In Qooqqut you will try your luck with longline fishing, and if you are new to the sport - your captain will give you a hand. It is possible to catch Acadian redfish, cod, trout and salmon. While you master the art of longline fishing, you will be surrounded by the unspoiled nature of towering mountains and luscious Arctic tundra. Once you are done fishing, the captain will take you ashore and bring you to the restaurant.

Get involved in the process of cleaning, fillet, roasting, steaming and boiling, or leave it in the hands of professional chefs, while exploring. Qooqqut is rich on Greenlandic herbs and geology, the grounds are speckled with garden angelica, arctic thyme and berries. You can also find ancient ruins of the Thule Eskimos and Norse settlers.

Get dressed for this extraordinary dining experience and bring your binoculars for this adventure! Check the booking availability by pressing 'Choose a date' above.

We did a round tour of Nuuk fjord, where we first visited the Narsap Sermia glacier and Uummanaq island for whale watching. The last stop of the day was Qooqqut, where we did some fishing in the neighboring waters, and ended the day with a lovely dinner at Qooqqut Nuan. Nuuk Water Taxi fulfilled our day with the best service imaginable, providing smiles, laughter and an excellent cruise through Nuuk Fjord's waters!
