We take the flight to Kulusuk airport-Kulusuk village-The Island- In the Ammassalik fjord in south east Greenland. Kulusuk means “The chest of a Black Guillemot.

Boat tour in Ammassalik fjord – Ikasagtivaq fjord
The landscape of the Ammassalik district is exceptionally beautiful and is like no other in the entire arctic. The district is full of lakes, large and steep mountains, waterfalls, green valleys, long rivers and huge glaciers. The area is largely uninhabited and breathtaking in its purity.
The boat tour starts at 9am from the harbour and we will sail along the Ammassalik fjord and from there through the deep fjord Ikasagtivaq to the settlement Tinit (Tinitiqilaaq)
Here we stop for 2 hours and have lunch on the shore of the icefjord.
Sail back to Tasiilaq.
– Knud Rasmussen glacier
We leave at 9 am to Ikateq a deserted village where nearby you find a rusty old American base that creates a contrast to the beautiful wilderness scenery surrounding it. From Ikateq we sail to Knud Rasmussen glacier where we stop for about 2 hours.
“In the Ikateq Fjord connecting Sermiligaaq and Kuummiut you’ll find the abandoned American airbase, founded shortly after World War II. When the Airport was moved to Kulusuk everything was left behind, and despite the fact that a lot of “souvenirs” have been collected in the past years, the place is still worth a visit.”
Sermiliqaq has a population of appr. 220 people. The wooden houses in the village are small and colorful and give the village a very distinctive and fun look. In the bottom of the fjord and about 20 km from Sermiliqaq there are two large glaciers, Knud Rasmussen glacier and Karale glacier. There are two other glaciers in the area and together they are sometimes called “the world’s largest ice machine”. Because of the glacier activities, the Sermiliqaq Fjord is colored with sediments, giving it a very distinctive milky blue color. The place is beautiful and perfect for capturing photos.
