Visit the northernmost natural settlement on our planet, Siorapaluk.  Inuit have lived in this area for over 4000 years, sustaining themselves in the Arctic nature.

Our boat trip goes past icebergs, and lands on a white-sand beach in front of a small cluster of houses.  The population of Siorapaluk is around 40.  Children may be at the playground or the beach, and you will meet locals in front of the store.  A river of clear, cold glacier melt runs through the settlement.   It is a beautiful walk along the coast in either direction.   The hills behind the houses is a nice place to go too, and you might spot some arctic hare if it’s early summer.

A half an hour walk or 5 minute boat ride will take you to where thousands of little auk nest.  There is a glacier at the bottom of the fiord, where you might spot some seals.  You can also take a hike, or explore the next fiord to the south.  Would like to spend your time around the settlement?  Or do you want to explore the fiord?  Discuss plans with your local guide and enjoy the summer day!
