Description

Hop aboard this 8-hour boat tour, taking yours through the East Greenlandic Icefjord, Sermilik to the beautiful charming village of Tiniteqilaaq. This is a great opportunity to uncover the hidden gems of East Greenland!

Your tour starts by Tasiilaq Harbour, from where you will be heading north of the Ammassalik Island.  You will be sailing through breathtaking landscapes of the countless iceberg and sky-high mountains circumscribing the fjord.  After an hour or two of sailing, we will arrive at the tiny settlement. Tiniteqilaaq means “The place that runs dry at low tide”.

From the small settlement, you can see Sermilik Icefjord –  a truly mesmerizing sight, with its colossal icebergs and the Greenland ice sheet blending into the horizon. We will go on land and explore the settlement. Tinit is quite small and has approximately 110 inhabitants. You will quickly get an impression of the daily lives of Greenlandic families living in smaller communities on the coast. 

After a short settlement walk, we will return to the boat and continue our journey through Sermilik ice fjord. Further in the fjord, we will stop the boat to get a well-deserved lunch in the presence of icebergs and hopefully, humpback whales. 

Put on a warm beanie and bring your best pair of hiking boots for this adventure! Check the availability by pressing ”Choose a date” above.
