Witness Greenland’s beauty at its most unique by joining this full-day tour to Nuuk Icefjord. This tour is perfect for you who are eager to discover the natural marvels of Greenland’s capital area.

This excursion starts by sailing you through one of the country’s most incredible natural marvels, Nuuk Fjord. While sailing through the fjord, you can take pleasure in the unspoiled scenery of mountains, waterfalls, and wildlife such as whales, seals, and eagles.

After 2,5 hours of sailing, you arrive in Kapisillit Kangerlua, a fjord branch of Nuuk Fjord, where your captain will anchor the boat. From here you will set out on a 45-minute hike on the Arctic tundra lands to reach the Icefjord.  The hike is medium difficulty, due to the untrailed and rugged terrain, it is necessary that you are equipped with a pair of hiking boots.

Arriving on-site, you will be rewarded with stunning panoramic views of the Icefjord and its circumscribing mountain ranges. The icebergs originate from three different glacier branches of the Greenland Ice Sheet, which are not visible from where we will be standing.  While gazing over the contrasting scenery of white icebergs and dark nuanced mountains.

After having explored one of the Greenlandic capital’s most sought-after attractions, you return to the boat and sail back to Nuuk.  Throughout your tour experience, you will be accompanied by an experienced and knowledgeable Arctic guide, who is eager to share their knowledge with you.
