Why not experience all the highlights of South Greenland in one tour?

Sailing with Qaqortoq Water Taxi is a nice and easy way to get to some of the top attractions in the Kujalleq area. You book the trip and Water Taxi will pick you up on one of two spots on the harbor - just like a Yellow Cab.

With this tour you will experience all the best of South Greenland - the Ice Cap, norse ruins, settlements, icebergs, green mountains and might even whales!

We will cruise through the big fiord system, that is carving its way through the beautiful landscape. We are starting off by visiting the edge of the Greenlandic Ice Cap. This is a truly unique experience, where you will see a little bite of the vast ice sheet that is covering most of Greenlands surface.

The tour continues to the cozy sheep-farming settlement of Qassiarsuk, which is close to Brattalid, an old settlement founded by Eric the Red in 982. Here we will go ashore for a walk and visit the old norse ruins.

The last stop on the tour will be at the Qooroq Glacier. This is where some of the icebergs in the fiord start their journey to the sea. With an explosion-like sound huge chunks of ice break off the glacier and create all kinds of beautiful ice-sculptures.

Through the whole tour we will be on the lookout for whales, as these huge marine mammals like to come into these areas. Who knows, we might be lucky!
