Visit the beautiful Qoornoq Island by booking this 4-hour boat trip! This tour is for those who would like to experience one of Nuuk Fjords, most interesting destinations of incredible nature and Greenlandic history.  This experience should not be missed those visitors of Greenland's capital, Nuuk, who are passionate about the country's history and spectacular nature.

Your tour starts at the colonial harbour, not far from the city centre, where you will be welcomed aboard our closed cabin boat. Your experienced captain will seat you, and pair you with a life jacket.  Once you are ready the captain will set the course towards the first highlight of the day. 

Sailing into Nuuk's complicated fjord system, we will pass the iconic Sermitsiaq Mountain, which from the leftover snow from winter creates a beautiful waterfall down the mountainside. It's a spectacular sight to see the waterfall tumbling down the side of the mountain. 

By the settlement, you will go ashore.  After a walk between the few houses and surrounding tundra, we will continue our journey to the other side of the island. This is where we will be met by a breathtaking waterfall, where we will stay and listen to the sound of the running water and enjoy the stunning view of the fjord. We will then head towards some old Norse ruins where you will be told about the living conditions thousands of years ago.

    What a great trip! The view through the fjords was incredible. We stopped on the way to have a look at the icebergs from up close. W even saw eagles and seals. The guide was very friendly and answered all the questions. I’d definitely recommend this trip.

    Incredible day trip to this little settlement! We were able to get off the boat and walk around the old Cod factory while the guide told us stories about its history and her own personal stories as a kid visiting the island. There were TONS of little icebergs on the shore which were amazing to see! Super unique trip, and not to mention the views throughout the fjord were spectacular!
