Go on the only tour of its kind in Uummannaq, combining both whale safari and roaming for the big musk oxen to the north.

You will go on a 126 km journey north, sailing in the waters of Fin whales, Humpbacks, Minkes and Seals. The voyage north will take about 3 hours to the land of Umiivik, a place well known for its population of musk oxen. The Greenlandic name of Musk Oxen is Umimmak, which loosely translates to the "big-bearded one", which, if you're lucky enough to come across them, you'll understand fully as you see their thick fur. The Captain is well trained in spotting these big animals, which hopefully will result in finding them before you even reach land. Having arrived you will spend a couple of hours there, enjoying the included lunch before heading back south.

Please note that the price is for chartering the whole boat for this excursion. This will include one to six passengers. When booking you will register one person and following choose how many extra passengers are on the trip. It is important for the Captain to know how many people you will be on the trip and that you fill in the names on the passenger list.
