Visit the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage Listed Ilulissat Icefjord and understand it’s historical significance on a walk through the Sermermiut Valley - the site of ancient settlements reaching back 4000 years.

After a short transfer out to the edge of Ilulissat, we head off on an easy hike along the boardwalk through the Sermermiut Valley towards the Ilulissat Icefjord.

Along the way we will explain the special characteristics of this area and why it has been inhabited for such a long time. We will also tell stories about the ancient Inuit way of life and how Greenlanders lived before the Europeans arrived, and point out the remains of some of the settlement structures that can be seen from our route (they aren’t obvious if you don’t know what to look for).

The views of icebergs become more and more spectacular as we approach the furthest point on our short hike - the viewpoint of Nakkaavik (literally ‘The place to fall’). There we will enjoy hot tea and coffee overlooking the expanse of the Icefjord before retracing our steps to our transfer vehicle.

    Great hiking trip! We visited Sermermiut valley during the winter time and the landscapes were wonderful! When we got a break, we shared coffee, tea and biscuits. I would love to have the same tour during the summer time on my next trip to Ilulissat.

    This was our first activity in Ilulissat and the perfect introduction to this beautiful place and it’s history. The short and scenic walk was wonderful, our guide was very knowledgeable, and the view of the icefjord at the end was spectacular! Highly recommend.
