    The traditional ice fishing ‘lesson’ was taken actually in Kangerlussuaq, still with this Company, and Polar Lodge hotel. It was led by a very kind girl, and we had a lady and 2 kids also as a companion. The kids behaved really well, and we 3 had fun discussions. However we didn’t see fish, had a great time on the ice. The weather and the scenery was fantastic, as well our discussions and mood. It is a really unique experience in the harbor area and overall… I learnt about the place, the people, Greenland and the language also a lot. As well about the tech of the ice fishing, how to work with the equipment. We just used artificial baits, and shiny but empty hooks. Generally they work, but could have been considered to use real bait too.. Nevertheless, that may be a good idea for other visitors, to try that too, by that way.
