Sea Safari | Sisimiut | North Greenland
Come along on an adventure by sea, which is paired with wildlife scouting and sailing! Combining the two activities always make for great adventures in Greenland. This tour is for anyone looking to discover the wonders of the arctic - from the archipelago paradise to the humpback whales playing hide and seek between the waves!
The sea has always been a very important part of the Greenlandic identity. In myths and legend, the sea is a massive power that permeates lifestyle and the understanding of the whole world. It has also provided the primary source of food up to this day, where fishing is the primary source of income in Greenland. On this tour you will get a totally different picture of what Greenland is all about - you will be bearing witness to the forces of nature that the Greenlandic people have overcome to survive.
Learn about the massive teamwork that is required for example caching a whale, how much effort and manpower it takes not only to hunt it but also to cut it straight after the kill. Afterwards, the meat is divided into the families who helped with the hunting.
You will be sailing in the Archipelago and the fjords around Sisimiut, where you also will get to see the spectacular Mount Nasaasaaq. Along the trip will be great chances to spot the many species of birds around the Sisimiut area. If you are lucky you might even get to see the majestic whales or curious seals along your journey.
In the winter season, you will be able to sail among breathtaking ice sculptures and to top it of, experience the northern lights whilst on the sea. A once an a lifetime experience.
