A glamorous camping site for the people who really want to revel in Greenlandic nature, away from any type of connection but with world-class comfort! The tour departs from the colonial harbor next to the National Museum and then heads toward the Nuuk Icefiord. We’ll stop among some of the icebergs before going all the way to the camp. Upon arrival, you will be greeted by our guides at the camp, who will give you a quick tour around the area and give you all the relevant information for your stay. Dinner will be served between 18-20 in our large tent, which can be enjoyed inside or out on the platform with a view. The following morning breakfast can be enjoyed between 08-09, with enough choices to pack a lunch in case you’d like to go for a longer hike. During your stay, it’s also possible to go out on a paddleboard or kayak tour; you could go fishing or on one of our suggested hikes. There are several viewpoints from which you can see the ice fiord.
After 24 hours within the fjords of Nuuk, make the most out of our 3-hour tight time in Nuuk by enjoying a dinner in a local restaurant. Transfer between ship and restaurant included. The restaurant varies in every rotation, and food includes local ingredients and a glass of wine, beer, or soda.
