This tour is for travelers who love the thrill of an exiting longer boat ride and scenic wonders of Greenland
The boat ride to Kapisillit takes approx. 2.5 hours and takes us through the eastern part of the Nuuk Fjord system. The mountains flanking the fjord are some of the oldest in the world and provide precious material for local artists. Take in the vastness of the fjord while keeping a lookout for whales, seals and white-tailed eagles. This is Kapisillit Settlement Visit.
Upon arriving at Kapisillit you will be able to walk the settlement and seeing the iconic church, with a spectacular view of the fiord. This is the place around 70 people call home every year.
Local school children are edcuated via Skype connection to Nuuk, and so they can maintain a high level of education even here.
On the way heading back to Nuuk, we will stop by Qoornoq, an abandoned settlement that today serves as a summer retreat area for locals from Nuuk. Qoornoq was abandoned in the 70s as the fish factory shut down and modern commodities where shut down.
Price includes: Sailing with guidance along the way – Coffe and tea are also complimentary
