Whale watching in Ilulissat and Oqaatsut
North Greenland Adventure will take you to the area north of the settlement of Oqaatsut to go seal and whale watching.
On the way, you can enjoy a cup of coffee or tea in a warm blanket and enjoy the view of enormous icebergs that come in all shapes, sizes and colours.
If the skipper catches a seal, he will bring it back so that you can taste it. Prepare to see fin whales, humpback whales, Greenland whales and minke whales.
Boat trips in Ilulissat
Explore Greenland by sea. You can, for example, go on a one-day or evening trip on the Icefjord and get right up close to some gigantic icebergs that are found in all sorts of shapes and colors.
The evening trip, in particular, offers you an unforgettable experience, when the evening sun bathes the icebergs in warm and lustrous hues.
Take the trip from Ilulissat to Oqaatsut and back, and take a closer look at the settlement which has fewer than 50 inhabitants.
You can go on a historical tour of the area and enjoy a delicious dinner at the local restaurant H8.

Kayaking in Oqaatsut
The sea at Oqaatsut is wonderful with spectacular views.The settlement nestles by the bay overlooking a seascape of icebergs. Remember to bring warm clothing and a packed lunch.
We recommend that more experienced walkers go on a hike lasting a week or more to Ataa Sund or Eqi or around Arveprinsens Eilande. The more experienced can hike all the way to Uummannaq.
This is an extraordinarily picturesque route and the natural surroundings are unforgettable.
North Greenland Adventure hires out kayaks for the day or per hour and provides you with any equipment you might need.
