Perfect trip for travelers who love nature and Greenlandic culture. You are going to hike with a local guide to small settlment up north from Ilulissat and spend day there enjoying calm Inuit village life.
On the first day of our program, we invite you to walk with us, accompanied by our local guide and take you through the fauna, flora andstories of this untouched landscape: a bay full of blue icebergs, rivers where fish run up for migration, Arctic flowers in the middle of tundra fields, or metamorphosed rocks polished by the action of glaciers.Once in Oqaatsut we will settle down in our rooms and have a traditional dinner, with free time to walk around the settlement.On the next day, we go on a small walk and tell you about the everyday life of the village’s inhabitants. We then join some local activities, tasks that the locals do in their everyday life. The activity we will do is subject to the season and the activities that local people do, such as learning how to cook and smoke fish, how to cut and dry it for storage, collecting wild plants and flowers to make tea, feed the sled dogs with their musher, repair a fishing net, or build a sled.Our local English speaking guide will translate, so you understand and learn about the Greenlandic reality.
