Maybe one of the best ways to expiereince arctic! Hike from Ilulissat to Oqaatsut, kayak among the icebergs and visit small settelment up north in one trip!
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 and stories 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, metamorphosed rocks polished by the action of glaciers. Once in Oqaatsut we settle down in our rooms and have a traditional dinner, with free time to walk around the settlement.Next day, after breakfast, we all meet to go out kayaking. Our experienced and certified kayaking guides, modern expedition equipment and safety protocols make it possible for you to kayak in the beautiful surroundings of Oqaatsut, full of nature and with a unique peacefuln atmosphere.
