Get up close to the icebergs
Sail around Nanortalik to look for the amazing floating Greenlandic wonders.
Nanortalik is surrounded by icebergs all year around. Every year in spring the drift ice from the east coast comes down to the southwest coast, with them comes the animals too. So, the ice was very important for the Inuits survival. Meet the local guide who grew up in the town that always have icebergs, the guide will tell you more about the importance of the ice right underneath the beautiful mountains of Nanortalik.
Not only can you enjoy the view of the icebergs, you can also touch one as soon as the local and the skilled captain finds an iceberg that is safe to get very close to.
The guide will provide a beverage with thousands of years old ice from the icecap.
Remember to keep watch for whales and seals on the tour, you might see one. The captain and the guide will also be on a look out as well.
