Nuuk Icefjord | Nuuk
Want to travel the entire length of the Nuuk Icefjord to witness the incredible Narsap Sermia glacier spilling down off the massive Greenland Ice sheet? This tour is for you, who would like to experience the wonders of the Arctic from icebergs to massive glacier moraines.
By the colonial harbor in Nuuk, you will be welcome aboard our closed boat. Rug up and sit under the open sky or in the heated closed cabin, as your experienced captain sets a course that will take you past many of the impressive mountains that shape Nuuk Fjord.
Enjoy the spectacular scenery as you cruise past the icebergs that have broken off the glacier and are now making their way down towards Nuuk. Some of them will make it the whole way and survive to see the city. Others will not.
If the ice conditions allow, you can be standing in front of the mighty Narsap Sermia glacier and marvel at its beautiful white and crystal blue face. Your captain will take you as close as possible while still keeping you safe, and you can sip on hot tea and coffee while you drink in the sight of one of Greenland’s many endangered glaciers.
