Whale Watching and Iceberg Safari | Tasiilaq | East Greenland

Join an evening cruise and go looking for whales, a unique experience surrounded by icebergs in all shapes and sizes!  Just moments after taking off from the harbour you'll see the very first icebergs in the fjord! While you enjoy the scenery, the captain will be scouting for whales of all kinds.  As soon as you reach the open sea there are good chances of spotting Humpbacks, Minkes and the enormous Fin whales. If we're extremely lucky we might even see the infamous Killer whales(Orcas)! The humpback whales are wonderful to find as they aren't as shy and will often show their white-spotted tail as they dive. As it can grow up to 18 meters it is a big whale, but it is also the most acrobatic of the large whales. The humpback can leap completely out of the water, a rare and incredible sight for the lucky few. Many of the whales come here for the large schools of capelin, a small fish similar to herring. These fish provide an excellent food source for both whales and the local people. A local delicacy is to dry them in the sun and eat them whole.  The orcas, however, are looking for young whale calves that aren't yet strong enough to defend themselves, and there are plenty of seals to come by as well. As we have set out in the evening we get to enjoy the sunset colours from it setting behind Greenland, a wonderful sight, sometimes with incredible colours. We can never guarantee to see whales but it is one of the best areas in Greenland to find them, If this sounds like the tour for you then go ahead and click 'Choose a date' above, and find a day that suits your next whale watching adventure!

Go on a boat tour to the beautiful Sermilik Icefjord, and experience the incredible Hann Glacier.  The journey will begin at Tasiilaq harbour and sail towards the southern part of Ammassalik Island where we'll slowly enter the Sermilik Fjord. A beautiful and breathtaking journey among icebergs of all shapes and sizes. Sermilik means “Icefjord” in Greenlandic, and the fjord certainly lives up to its name. Behind every corner you will find an iceberg bigger than the previous, giving every passing-by traveller the feeling of how small we are compared to the impressive giants of the sea. After about an hour into the journey, we will see the abandoned settlement Ikkatteq, situated on a small island. You will have the opportunity to go on shore and explore the village and take a sneak peek into the building where the school and church are joined. The small classroom with books and notes and the church are still neatly left behind. The view from the abandoned village overlooking the water is a breathtaking sight, imagine how the people in this settlement must have lived. Living off nature and very limited resources, both very fulfilling but also very difficult. The trip will shortly continue after the shortstop, heading north to Johan Pedersen Fjord. From what you have experienced up until this point, it will be nothing compared to what you are about to experience. The enchanting landscape is an astonishing and thrilling sight of ice sculptures, light blue water, and most importantly the Hann glacier. With the possibility of witnessing huge chunks of ice falling from the grand Greenland Ice Sheet. We will head ashore and enjoy our packed lunch while overlooking the front of the glacier, and a chance to hike around the area. After approximately two hours we will head back the way we came and head back to town. This grand adventure is waiting for you, all you have to do is pull on your warmest hat and bring your binoculars for this adventure!

Whale Watching and Iceberg Safari | Tasiilaq | East Greenland

Join an evening cruise and go looking for whales, a unique experience surrounded by icebergs in all shapes and sizes!  Just moments after taking off from the harbour you'll see the very first icebergs in the fjord! While you enjoy the scenery, the captain will be scouting for whales of all kinds.  As soon as you reach the open sea there are good chances of spotting Humpbacks, Minkes and the enormous Fin whales. If we're extremely lucky we might even see the infamous Killer whales(Orcas)! The humpback whales are wonderful to find as they aren't as shy and will often show their white-spotted tail as they dive. As it can grow up to 18 meters it is a big whale, but it is also the most acrobatic of the large whales. The humpback can leap completely out of the water, a rare and incredible sight for the lucky few. Many of the whales come here for the large schools of capelin, a small fish similar to herring. These fish provide an excellent food source for both whales and the local people. A local delicacy is to dry them in the sun and eat them whole.  The orcas, however, are looking for young whale calves that aren't yet strong enough to defend themselves, and there are plenty of seals to come by as well. As we have set out in the evening we get to enjoy the sunset colours from it setting behind Greenland, a wonderful sight, sometimes with incredible colours. We can never guarantee to see whales but it is one of the best areas in Greenland to find them, If this sounds like the tour for you then go ahead and click 'Choose a date' above, and find a day that suits your next whale watching adventure!

They used the area to navigate for search-and-rescue operations and, very importantly, to improve weather forecasts. Today it is mostly known as an open-air museum mostly due to the abandoned facilities, fuel drums and vehicles, and has been an occasional political issue in the US, as it is basically left behind trash, however, it is still a very special insight into our history during the war. After a short tour around the wreckage we will head on to Sermiligaaq Fjord. An enchanting area of jagged mountains and two glaciers colliding.
