Get up close to the icebergs

Sail around Nanortalik to explore the amazing floating wonders of Greenland. This short yet worthwhile excursion is the perfect choice for those who want to get up close to the icebergs.


Nanortalik is surrounded by icebergs throughout the year. Each spring, drift ice from the north eastern part of Greenland makes its way to the southwest coast, bringing with it various animals. Therefore, icebergs have been crucial for the survival of the Inuit people. Meet your local guide and captain, who grew up in a town always surrounded by icebergs. Your guide will share insights into the importance of ice while situated beneath the beautiful mountains of Nanortalik.


Not only can you enjoy the view of the icebergs, you can also touch one as soon as your skilled captain finds an iceberg that is safe to get very close to. 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.
