Fishing For Acadian Redfish | Nuuk
Do you want to do like the locals? Then join on this fishing trip and try to catch your own dinner!
As locals we know the fjord around Nuuk very well and know exactly where to take you for a good catch of "Redfish". We will sail out from Nuuk and into the fjord towards Qooqqut. This place is known as "the Redfish hole" and is the best place to catch exactly this delicious fish.
Fishing is a very important part of the Greenlandic culture and fish plays a big role in the traditional diet. Today many people have their own boat and go out to fish to sustain their families or just for fun. Fishing is a great activity, you both get the excitement when you feel something nibbling your bait. At the same time it is very relaxing as you get to enjoy the surrounding nature, wildlife and feel the fresh arctic wind in your hair. The area around Qooqqut is very beautiful with its grass covered mountains, so the eyes will not get bored from enjoying the view of the landscape.
The Redfish can get quite big and it can get very exciting from the moment you feel it on the hook to you finally have it on-board the boat. You both have to be quick but also careful that you do not loose it again. If we do not catch anything within the first couple of minutes we will sail to another spot to try our luck.
The sailing time makes up around 2,5 hours of the tripe leaving 1,5 hour for fishing. We will sail north from Nuuk passing the beautiful Sermitsiaq island with its iconic mountain tops.
