Ptarmigan hunt in the Nuuk fiord

On ptarmigan hunts we like to sail out into the fiord where we believe there might be good chances for a catch.

This may change from time to time, depending on the weather too.

This tour is mostly on your own but our guide or captain won’t mind joining if it’s your first time hunting ptarmigan.

Normally we like to set people off in smaller groups on several different locations, so it’s pretty flexible

We try as best as possible to go to a new area on every tour

The sailing itself will usually last between 30 min and can get up to 2 hours as we get later in the season and seek deeper into the fiord.

We always make sure we sail back in time to be home at 5 pm.


To rent snowshoes you can just click 'add more tickets' and then find 'snowshoes' under the 'activities' list. Make sure that you book snowshoes for the same date as your ptarmigan hunt.

Food and drinks are your own responsibility but there will be coffee and tea aboard the boat.

Please Note: To hunt you need to have your own riffel and hunting license, you can read more about it here
