Day 3 - Best Of Nuuk Fjord


5-Day Package | Nuuk In The Winter | West Greenland


Today you'll have the rare opportunity to go on a sailing adventure to the fishing and hunting village of Kapisillit.

Your day starts by you hopping on board our boat, that will transfer you to Kapisillit. Sailing Nuuk fjord, is quite special. It is not only one of the largest fjords in the world, but it also holds some of the worlds oldest mountains. The mountains of the fjord, are sky high and circumscribe the veins of water, creating an unbelievable breathtaking landscape.

Once you have arrived at today's first destination, you will go on a guided walk in the charming village and meet the locals. Kapisillit is located at the bottom of the fjord, near the Narsap Sermia Glacier and its surrounding ice fjord. Kapisillit is quite different from Nuuk, as the inhabitants practice a more traditional lifestyle of fishing and hunting.

Once you are done with your guided settlement tour, hop on board - we are setting the sails toward Qoornoq! En route, we will pass Uummannaq island, a heart-shaped island, keep an eye out for caribou, as they are known to occupy the island in the winter. Qoornoq is located near the Nuuk Icefjord, and therefore we will make a quick stop, so you can enjoy your lunch among the huge azures of ice. It may not be possible to get off the boat and explore the village because of ice and snow conditions, but we will get as close as the ice allows.

When returning to Nuuk, we will sail by the frozen waterfall by the iconic Sermitsiaq mountain. The frozen waterfall will rise high above you and will leave you with amazement. The tour starts a 9 o'clock.


Day 4 - Optional Tours & Northern Lights Boat Tour

You can also choose to rent skis instead, to go skiing in the hills.

Please note, that these tours are optional. 

To wrap the adventure up is a 2-hour included northern lights boat tour. We will be sailing out of Nuuk, to get away from the city lights, so you can enjoy the Aurora Borealis in peace. It is quite magnificent to see the arctic phenomenon, as all colours dance across the star-filled sky.
