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!

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!
