Join this marvellous trip combining kayaking with a cultural visit to the charming hunting village Oqaatsut. If you always have wanted to experience Greenland along with visiting Ilulissat, then this is something for you. As you will sail the arctic ocean from Ilulissat to the little settlement of Oqaatsut among humongous icebergs with the beautiful nuances of blue and white.

When you have arrived in the village you will be joined by an experienced kayaking instructor who will take you through the basics and help you along the journey. As you will go through the safety instructions, you will get the best introduction of how to operate a kayak. Shortly after you will head onto the water. With your fellow explorers, you will get the thrilling experience of strolling across the water surface as you will get to sail among icebergs and get up close to the giants of the sea.

If you are lucky you might even get to sail in the company of humpback whales. Curious and gentle creatures that are often spotted in the Greenlandic seas. From whales to a traditional village where you will get to see local hunters go out or come back from a hunt, but usually in the summer, they catch huge numbers of fish.

After paddling through the bay of the Oqaatsut, we will make a stop and take a small hike to the lakes and waterfall in the backcountry.

You will also get to enjoy lunch in H8 restaurant made from local fish and meat and get the full experience as you will get to see the beautiful decorations on the walls and the cosy feeling. Tag along on this adventure just outside of Ilulissat and experience kayaking in the fjord of Oqaatsut. Reserve your adventure by pressing on ‘Book Now’ above.

    That was the hilight of my trip to Greenland!
    We sailed to Oqaatsut (which was so cute small place with no roads), changed over there and have kayaking tour over there. It was sooo silence, I never experienced that. People we meet was so friendly as well as small puppies running around. Definitely recommend as it is really different from Ilulissat!
