Private Glacier and Settlement Tour | Uummannaq | North Greenland
Would you like to know more about how climate change has affected North Greenland? Then join this 4-hour boat trip to the settlement of Saattut, north of Uummannaq!
In Saattut, you will meet and talk with local hunters, where the guide will ask and translate their stories, about how much has changed just in the past 2 decades, and how it has affected their daily lives.
After a few conversations, you will go Northwest to the glaciers in Itilliarsuup Kangerlua, where you clearly can see how the ice has retracted and left a bare rock surface.
It is an endearing tour that'll awe you in its beauty and give you a deeper understanding of life in the Arctic and how the changing climate is affecting real lives.
Please note that the price is for chartering the whole boat for this excursion.Immerse yourself in the consequences of climate change by studying Greenlandic culture and visiting the retracting icecap in the North Greenland region, by selecting your date of travel and clicking on Book Now.
