Whale Watching and Iceberg Safari | Tasiilaq | East Greenland

Join an evening cruise and go looking for whales, a unique experience surrounded by icebergs in all shapes and sizes! Just moments after taking off from the harbour you'll see the very first icebergs in the fjord! While you enjoy the scenery, the captain will be scouting for whales of all kinds. As soon as you reach the open sea there are good chances of spotting Humpbacks, Minkes and the enormous Fin whales. If we're extremely lucky we might even see the infamous Killer whales(Orcas)!The humpback whales are wonderful to find as they aren't as shy and will often show their white-spotted tail as they dive. As it can grow up to 18 meters it is a big whale, but it is also the most acrobatic of the large whales. The humpback can leap completely out of the water, a rare and incredible sight for the lucky few.Many of the whales come here for the large schools of capelin, a small fish similar to herring. These fish provide an excellent food source for both whales and the local people. A local delicacy is to dry them in the sun and eat them whole. The orcas, however, are looking for young whale calves that aren't yet strong enough to defend themselves, and there are plenty of seals to come by as well.As we have set out in the evening we get to enjoy the sunset colours from it setting behind Greenland, a wonderful sight, sometimes with incredible colours.We can never guarantee to see whales but it is one of the best areas in Greenland to find them, If this sounds like the tour for you then go ahead and click 'Choose a date' above, and find a day that suits your next whale watching adventure!

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!
