Sea Fishing | Private tour | Ilulissat | Disko Bay
Fishing always has been and still is a big part of the Greenlandic way of life. So if you want an authentic experience for any age and experience level - join us and catch your own fresh fish from the cold arctic waters.
Depending on the season, it varies what fish you will be able to catch. In June "Ammassatter", also called capelin and they are caught by net, late the summer season trout and cod is very likely to be inhabiting the seas. Some fishing gear will be provided, but you are more than welcome to bring your own equipment.
