Sailing to a settlement

Take your time to explore and experience Greenlandic culture. Chat with one of the 80 locals, before moving on to the next destination of the day.

Fishing for trout is an art to be mastered, as you have to have patience – fishing in Greenland does not require that you are experienced and is fun for all ages.

The last destination of the day will be a branch of the Greenland ice cap. When arriving at the glacier, you will be overwhelmed with its enormous size.

Stand in the blue and white nuanced rays of the soaring glacier, while the arctic winds long to play with your hair. It is a unique and once in a lifetime experience, that will drain you emotionally with its beauty.

Melissa Lawson –
Excellent Fjord tour! The weather was fantastic! Niya (sp?) was an excellent guide, while Aug was the perfect driver. The tour focused on the beauty of the fjord, and close up views of icebergs. We had an opportunity to stop at the glacier for a closer look on foot. Just surreal being so close. I highly recommend Guide to Greenland and this tour!
