A Taste Of Greenland | Evening in Oqaatsut | Ilulissat
Get a taste of Greenland with this extraordinary small settlement experience, departing from Ilulissat. This tour is the perfect introduction to Greenland’s food culture, as well as the gifts that Greenlandic nature has to offer. This tour takes you out of town, to the small settlement of Oqaatsut. Oqaatsut is located around 20 kilometers north of Ilulissat, approximately a 30-minute boat trip. Upon arrival in Oqaatsut, we will do a guided settlement tour. Oqaatsut was originally called ‘Rodebay’, named after dutch whalers, who established the small settlement as a trading station in the 18th century. After a guided tour of the settlement, you will have some free time to explore on your own. After exploring Oqaatsut we will visit H8 restaurant where you will enjoy a 3-course dinner with a view of the bay. The food is made from local ingredients which helps you to find the taste of Greenland. The Greenlandic people have always lived in coherence with nature, and have always been dependent on nature’s gifts, such as fish, caribou, berries, Arctic thyme, Arctic Angelica, Qajaasat (Labrador Tea), mushrooms, harebell, etc. Oqaatsut is surrounded by endless miles of Arctic tundra and sea, with perfect conditions for Greenlandic herbs to grow undisturbed by pollution and Greenlandic wildlife to flourish. After dinner, we will jump back in the boat and head back to Ilulissat! Do not hesitate to book this extraordinary dining experience, as you will get to spend a full day in nature, eating delicious food, and immerse yourself in Greenlandic culture and history.
