Huge icebergs will gently flow by us, as we travel up the Sermilik Ice fjord. After about two hours of saiing we will reach the small settlement of Tiniteqilaaq, which in Greenladic mens “The strait that runs dry at low tide”. The small settlement has a spectacular view of the icefjord with its colossal icebergs and the enormous Ice Sheet dominating the horizon.

Once you are finished exploring the settlement, we will then board the boat and travel further north in the fjord where we will enjoy a packed lunch on the water, enjoying the majestic icebergs that surround us.
After lunch the skipper will start steering south for our return journey through the fjord. The boat will sail southwards the length of the fjord and then navigate the edges of the polar sea as we round the south of the Ammassalik island and through the King Oscar fjord to return to Tasiilaq.
