Explore one of the most spectacular parts of the world’s second-largest fjord system on this 2 hour Nuuk Fjord adventure.

Leaving from the Colonial Harbour in the historic area of Nuuk, we will pass a multitude of colorful houses lined up along the shores of the Fjord as we sail North towards the iconic mountain, Sermitsiaq.  Your captain will be on the lookout for seals, whales, and other wildlife, and will plot a course to visit any large nearby icebergs en route.

Our adventure takes us around the back-side of Sermitsiaq where an enormous waterfall (frozen solid during the winter) cascades down from the mountain top, and tall mountains further in the fjord come into view.  The shape of the mountain and the views of the fjord as we navigate all the way around Sermitsiaq Island change considerably, so make sure you bring spare batteries and plenty of space on your camera.

Although this tour will take place in a closed, heated boat, we encourage you to dress very warmly as you will want to spend as much time out on deck as possible. This is where you will have the best views. There will also be tea and coffee waiting inside if you need to warm up.

    We had such a great tour! I do not think you have experienced Nuuk properly if you haven’t been on a boat tour. This tour is perfect if you have a busy schedule or just a short stay in Nuuk. It was only two hours, but we got to see some beautiful nature and the captain was really nice and telling stories about the places we saw. The tour was in an open boat, but we all got survival suits, so we could stay nice and warm. Super service! I would recommend this tour to everyone 🙂

    Vi havde en fantastisk tur! Jeg synes ikke man har oplevet Nuuk helt, hvis ikke man har været på en sejltur i fjorden. Denne tur er perfekt, hvis man har et tæt pakket program eller bare besøger byen i kort tid. Vi var på en to timers, eftermiddagstur efter arbejdstid. Selvom turen ikke var lang fik vi set utrolig flot natur og kaptajnen var virkelig flink, fortalte historier om de steder vi så og inviterede på kaffe da vi var kommet halvvejs. Turen var i en åben båd, men vi fik alle overlevelsesdragter, så vi kunne holde varmen. Super service! Jeg vil varmt anbefale denne tur til alle 🙂

    It was a wonderful experience!!! We were sailing in Nuuk Fjord, excited about the idea of exploring the area by boat, but we ended up meeting whales and sailing around icebergs. I loved it!!!

    We had an excellent time on this short tour! We visited in January 2022 and the timing of the tour was matched so there was some daylight to see the beautiful surroundings. The tour guides were great! Would definitely recommend this tour!

    I wish to advise that I had a fabulous day in Nuuk thanks to your help with the Tour Bookings . The “Fjord Safari Cruise” was spectacular. The Crew were excellent. On the cruise we witnessed an incredible Sunset, plenty of small to Large Icebergs and either one or possibly two Whales going about their normal business performing for our cameras.

    To conclude I had a memorable visit to Greenland, so wish to thank you for your help in organizing the two Tours.

    Really loved this trip. The skipper and tour guide were very friendly and knowledgeable and also very communicative before the trip, making sure we were informed of all arrangements or time changes. We saw icebergs and shipwrecks and had wonderful talks with the guide about nature and life in Greenland.

    I was underwhelmed by the experience. From all the promotional materials I expected to see much more in the way of ice burgs.
    The two fellows on the boat were very nice. Not their fault.
