Stand Up Paddleboarding amongst the Icebergs | Nuuk | West Greenland

Travel the length of the spectacular Nuuk Fjord for a unique experience of stand up paddleboarding (SUP) amongst thousands of icebergs. No previous experience necessary! Our journey begins with us sailing as far as possible up the world’s second-largest fjord system - the Nuuk Fjord. Although we travel in a closed and heated boat, you will want to dress warmly so that you can spend as much time as possible out on deck for the best views of the spectacular, steep mountains that line our route. It will take us about 2-3 hours to reach the Icefjord where thousands of icebergs are cast off from several glaciers to begin their journey to the ocean. Here we will gear up with drysuits, life jackets and communication gear to ensure everyone is warm and safe, and give an introduction to paddleboarding for those who are new to the experience. Once on the boards, we will paddle between the icebergs for around 2 hours, exploring this surreal watery landscape choked with floating ice. The silence of the area is broken only by the sounds of us paddling and the cracking of the ice surrounding us - a welcome respite from the busy lives most of us lead. If you fall off your board - no worries! You’ve just added a “polar plunge” to the experiences you’ve ticked off in Greenland! Your drysuit will keep you warm and dry, and the board is easy to get back onto. The boat crew also stays very close to help you if needed. Reserve your place on this unique stand up paddleboarding experience by selecting your date of travel and clicking on Book Now. Note: there is no age minimum. However, participants must be taller than 125cm due to the sizes of drysuits available. It is not possible to do this excursion without a drysuit.

You begin your adventure at Nuuk airport where you will be greeted by your experienced pilot and taken out to the waiting helicopter.  There they will point out key elements of the aircraft, take you through a safety briefing, and let you know which mountain you will be visiting on the excursion. This latter is determined by the weather conditions and is not decided until just before the flight. Then sit back and enjoy the views as you lift off and head for the designated peak.  During the flight you will have unparalleled views of the Nuuk and the Nuuk Fjord system, and you will be able to talk to your pilot through your headset and ask questions about what you are seeing.  Landing a helicopter in the wilderness is an experience in itself, and you will likely have a bit of an adrenaline rush as your pilot searches for solid ground on which to land.  If there is snow at the summit, this can mean multiple landing attempts as your pilot compacts the snow to ensure a stable platform for the aircraft. Once the helicopter has been shut down, you will then have around 20 minutes to explore this uncharted location that is only accessible by helicopter.  Make sure you bring plenty of warm clothing and extra batteries for your camera as you will want to enjoy and capture this unique experience for as long as possible. Indulge your inner thrillseeker and combine a scenic flight with a summit landing. Reserve this unforgettable experience now by selecting your preferred departure date above.

Sailing to Karale & Knud Rasmussen Glacier | Tasiilaq | East Greenland

Sail into the wonderful wilderness of the vast east coast and experience 2 massive glaciers side by side. We’ll venture into the astonishing Arctic landscape, sailing among icebergs of incredible shapes and sizes getting as close as safely possible to the Karale and Knud Rasmussen Glacier. The journey will start with a visit to the famous Bluie East Two, in an area named Ikateq. This place is often visited by tourists and locals as it used to be an airbase during the 2nd World War. The US military used this airfield to refuel their planes and as a medical station for the wounded. They used the area to navigate for search-and-rescue operations and, very importantly, to improve weather forecasts. Today it is mostly known as an open-air museum mostly due to the abandoned facilities, fuel drums and vehicles, and has been an occasional political issue in the US, as it is basically left behind trash, however, it is still a very special insight into our history during the war. After a short tour around the wreckage we will head on to Sermiligaaq Fjord. An enchanting area of jagged mountains and two glaciers colliding. Sermiliqaaq means “The Beautiful Glacier Fjord” and certainly lives up to its name. The two glaciers Karale Glacier and Knud Rasmussen are both elegant and massive giants trying tp dominate each other. A place where you with almost certainty will see one or both glaciers calve, a an unimaginable sight, with sounds of thunder as the ice crack off and hit the ocean. The views are astonishing but the sound is like nothing else, thrilling and scary, but you will be in safe hands with the sailor’s knowledge and experience. Depending on the conditions of the ice, we will go ashore nearby the Knud Rasmussen Glacier and enjoy our packed lunch. A chance to hike around is possible before we will be heading back to Tasiilaq. Do not miss out on this authentic and mind-blowing experience! Check out the booking availability by pressing ‘Choose a date’ above and book your adventure.
