2013 Tour Program: June - September from Tasiilaq

Iceberg boat cruise

An impressive sailing trip into the Pack-ice. The ice is tough sea-ice deriving from countless winters in the Polar Ocean and often 10 meters or more thick. The ice from the Polar Ocean flows mainly outwards between Spitsbergen and East Greenland. Amongst the Pack-ice are enormous icebergs, pieces of inland ice often criss-crossed by blue and green stripes where melt water from the glaciers has run into crevasses in the many thousand year-old ice. A "must" for photographers! Duration: about 2 hours 
Price: DKK 445

 

Ikateq village by boat

Sailing southwards we arrive at the entrance of the vast, often ice-filled Sermilik fjord (3 glaciers disgorge bergs into the head of this fjord) and a typical Greenland village. Remains of earlier simple stone and turf houses stand beside the colourful small wooden dwelling, and a tiny, charming church, which is also the schoolhouse. One arrives here in the summer by boat, and in winter, overland by dogsled! The sailing route may give the bonus of a whale sighting. Duration: about 5 hours. Basic meal on board. 
Price: DKK 695

 

Mittivakkat Glacier by helicopter

This sightseeing flight takes us up over Ammassalik Island with views across mountains, glaciers and fjords and lands us at over 1000 meters altitude on Mitivagkat Glaciers, an original part and the ancient Greenland Ice Cap. A stunning view all around, with the Sermilik fjord below us and the mainland opposite. The purity of the arctic air greatly increases visibility such that we can see in excess of 200 kilometers along the coast. 25 min stop to take photos and enjoy the silence, before the return flight. Duration: 1 Hour 
Price: DKK 1595

 

Valley of flowers

This ramble takes visitors out of Ammassalik "town" into a luxuriant valley where one sees the arctic summer flora and landscape. The lakes and rivers coursing through this valley often have jumping char fish. We follow a rough track (in the early summer with snow pockets) but the terrain is not difficult. At a leisurely pace, we have time to examine the tiny but beautiful flowers of which there are a surprising variety. Duration: 1-2 Hours 
Price: DKK 175
