Fjord Excursion | Powerboat Ride | Nuuk
Would you like to experience the wonderful and exceptionally beautiful Nuuk fjord? Come along and join this fjord cruise on our RIB boat!
Nature is great in Greenland, and Nuuk fjord is no exception. Nuuk fjord is famous for its sky-high mountains, mythical wilderness, and unbeatable beauty. This tour will show you the very best of the spellbinding fjord!
Your adventure starts with you venturing out on the neighboring seas of Nuuk. We will sail along the shore, where you can enjoy the colorful Nuuk from the seaside. We set course towards Sermitsiaq to visit a local gem, hiding on the mountainside. Once you arrive at Sermitsiaq will be met by a largr waterfall, sliding down the mountainside from Sermitsiaq’s very own glacier.
From here we sail further into Nuuk fjord. Every summer and spring Icebergs make their journey out of Nuuk fjord from the Narsap Sermia glacier, and if we are lucky we will meet an iceberg on its journey into the Atlantic ocean! We sail around Bear island and enter the Qoornoq fjord. The fjords water is circumscribed by towering mountains in all sizes and shapes. The area is a well-known summer residence of the humpback whale, so keep an eye out for the giant sea creatures playing hide and seek between the waves!
Distances are greater than the eye immediately believes. It is therefore advantageous to sail at high speed if you want to get around and experience as much as possible in a short period of time, and the fast RIB boat reaches far. If you think it's going too fast, the captain adjusts the speed so everyone feels comfortable. There is no guarantee of seeing a whale, but we guarantee a great experience by sailing in the Nuuk fjord, surrounded by beautiful mountains.

Frederik Levi Munthe –
Absolutely wild experience! Think we sailed at almost 100 km / h. A great way to experience the Greenlandic nature in an exciting and fun way.
Yahoo!! It felt like flying low above the waves. A totally unique experience. I never tried sailing like this before, but this was not the last time.
