About the voyage
- Departure: Ilulissat
- Arrival: Ilulissat
- Duration: 2 nights
- Ship: Sarfaq Ittuk
Uummannaq and its surrounding fjord is a photographer’s paradise that completely changes character but loses none of its grandeur as the seasons change. During summer in Uummannaq, sailing trips will take you to where the Qilakitsoq mummies (Greenland’s oldest mummies) were discovered, to the brilliantly yellow “Arctic Desert” with rocks more than 1.5 billion years old, to nearby settlements, impossibly steep bird cliffs, actively calving glacier faces and past icebergs that are at least as big as those found in Ilulissat.
A chorus of Greenlandic sled dogs at the base of the heart-shaped mountain calls you to adventure amidst the enormous icebergs of the Uummannaq Fjord.Read more
Excursions included this voyage
Location: Parabolen, Uummannaq Meat from marine mammals, game, birds, and fish has been the main ingredient in Greenlandic food for generations. The high meat content in the diet provided energy and nourishment all year round for a physically demanding existence where the harsh Arctic winter could seriously tax one’s energy reserves. The Greenlandic culinary culture is also closely tied to the old hunting community’s strong social solidarity, where vital necessities depended on the catch being shared. Today food and mealtimes remain a central part of Greenlanders’ characteristic hospitality.
