Sail deep into the fiord of Nuuk and hike to the wonderful ice fiord

We sail for about 2,5 hours right to the edge of the fiord from which it’s only about a 45 min hike on flat terrain to see the ice fiord.

We’ll bring sandwiches with us on the hike so that we can grab a bite when we reach the ice fiord. The icebergs vary greatly in size and numbers depending greatly on the activity of the 3 large glaciers that feed the ice fiord deeper down than what we can see from here.

On the boat ride there it’s possible to experience a variety of wildlife such as whales, seals, and eagles. Although with no guarantee.

Kapisillit has become home to the northernmost sheep farm in the world which means we’re likely to find a couple of sheep roaming around, but also local wildlife such as reindeer, foxes, and hares have been known to cross by this area.

The hike itself isn’t difficult, but there is no trail and it’s important to wear good hiking boots as we might pass by some marshland.

The hike is not appropriate if you have any difficulty with hiking. But if you don’t then you’ll be rewarded with great views and a delicious meal before it’s time to head back.

The guide has extensive knowledge about the area so feel free to ask any question you might have.

We invite you to join us for an experience of a lifetime on this Kapisillit Icefiord hike from Nuuk.
