Visit the beautiful Qoornoq Island by booking this 4-hour boat trip! This tour is for those who would like to experience one of Nuuk Fjords, most interesting destinations of incredible nature and Greenlandic history.  This experience should not be missed those visitors of Greenland's capital, Nuuk, who are passionate about the country's history and spectacular nature. 

Your tour starts at the colonial harbour, not far from the city centre, where you will be welcomed aboard our closed cabin boat. Your experienced captain will seat you, and pair you with a life jacket.  Once you are ready the captain will set the course towards the first highlight of the day. 

Sailing into Nuuk's complicated fjord system, we will pass the iconic Sermitsiaq Mountain, which from the leftover snow from winter creates a beautiful waterfall down the mountainside. It's a spectacular sight to see the waterfall tumbling down the side of the mountain. En route to Qooqrnoq, you might be able to spot one of the many sea creatures inhabiting the seas of the fjord,  humpback whales and seals are common!

By the settlement, you will go ashore.  After a walk between the few houses and surrounding tundra, we will continue our journey to the other side of the island. This is where we will be met by a breathtaking waterfall, where we will stay and listen to the sound of the running water and enjoy the stunning view of the fjord. We will then head towards some old Norse ruins where you will be told about the living conditions thousands of years ago.

Put on your warmest hat, and join this marvelous journey through the complex fjord system around Nuuk. See availability by pressing 'Choose a date' and book your tour today.
