We go for the great breathtaking experiences on a late afternoon or evening tour. Exchange the sofa or your saily training after work with paddling in some of the world's most stunning sceneries looking for the whales! No previous experience necessary!
We start our adventure with an introduction to equipment and dressing up. All gear up we sail out of the city heading to Nuuk fjord. Our main aim is to find whales and enjoy an unforgettable experience stand up paddleboarding (SUP) with these gentle giants. Enjoy your sailing tour and help your guide to spotting whales. When we find the whales your guide will stop the boat and you will get ready to test your balance on the paddleboard. Don't worry your guide will help you and give useful advice on how to quickly learn paddle boarding!
Once on the boards, we will paddle with whales in stunning surroundings. You don't need to be afraid of the whales, even so, they are big they are very gentle animals. It is an extraordinary experience being so close to nature and enjoying the beautiful views of mountains and whales. That's an experience you will never forget!
Nature is unpredictable therefore, we cannot guarantee that we will find whales. However, if we are not so lucky and we cannot find whales we will head to Sermitsiaq waterfall and had fun while paddleboarding next to the iconic mountain!
