A Northern Lights boat tour in Nuuk is the perfect way to experience The Aurora Borealis.

It has always been fascinating for the people of the arctic, the pioneering people.

Join us on this brand new excursion where we set up when other boats tug in for the night. We go explore in the cold arctic night in search of the amazing lights.

The tour will depart from the old colonial harbour or the tidewater stairs (from the 1st of oct.) and head towards an area named Akia – from here we have a wonderful view of the city’s skyline and we have no disturbing lights. We continue to cruise very slowly towards the vast fiord system, making multiple stops where we silence the boat and enjoy the setting in the sky.

The Northern Lights is a result of particles from the Sun interfering with the atmosphere of the Earth at the magnetic poles.

Coffee, Tea or Hot chocolate are always complimentary on these cruises.

Price includes around 3 hours of sailing, with guidance along the way – Coffee, Hot Chocolate and Tea are complimentary.
