Fjord safari & Fishing | Nuuk | West Greenland
Combine two adventures in one trip: enjoy the beautiful Nuuk fjord and try fishing in Greenland!
Enjoy beautiful views of snowy mountains, birds, and if we are lucky seals or whales. The weather conditions determine the exact sailing plan and the captain will decide where it is best to try your luck with the fish. But no matter where you stop, you'll have a breathtaking view of the Nuuk Fjord.
Fishing is a way of life here in Greenland and the locals love to catch and eat fish in all its many forms. However, if you don't have any fishing experience, that's not a problem. The captain and guide will set you up, show you what to do and take care of the fish once you've caught them. All you have to do is reel them in. And don't worry about returning empty-handed! There are loads of fish along the Greenland coast.
Once you've finished catching fish, lean back and enjoy the journey home through the spectacular fjord system and its impressive mountains. There will be time for a famous "Polar plunge", so if you are feeling brave don't forget your towel!
