Arctic Char Ice fishing | Nuuk
Enjoy boating, hiking and ice fishing all in one day. You go in an open boat to Akia near Nuuk. After only 20 minutes of sailing, you disembark on a beach and after around 15 minutes of walking with snowshoes, you get to the frozen lake.
We have put up a large tent with and put in some heating so you can go inside and warm up or have a meal. This area is so close to Nuuk and yet you will be off-grid and experience the pure Greenlandic wilderness.
We will bring the provided fishing gear and now you can fish wherever you choose, but there is a particular spot where we have caught a whopping 43 cm long arctic char, which we can recommend.
The landscape around the lake is astonishing and worth to explore if you would like to stretch out. Often you can see eagles, polar hares and rock ptarmigans in the area.Select your preferred date and click Book Now to reserve your place.
