Travelling in a boat towards the massive icebergs is an exciting experience. They are all shapes and sizes and indeed colours. As the sun sets some of the bergs turned pink in the light and seemed so unreal. This is a wonderful experience, but wear...More

These massive icebergs are floating in water with most of them below the water. However, the part above water are also massive. They glisten in bright sunlight. The texture and colors are unimaginable. Every one of them are unique. Large whales make these waters their...More

One of the most beautiful places on earth. I recommend the hike to the UNESCO heritage site, sit on the bedrocks and breath in and out. The views are “hard to descripe” beautiful! A place to zero yourself, a place to see the beauty of...More

Wow. Just wow. Had the best time out on a boat for 3 hours, we did it in the winter, was fascinating. Not sure I'd like to be there in the summer when those massive iceburgs are cracking and rolling over tho!! Stunning. Just amazing.

The walk is wonderful. As I was there in winter, I was the only person with the guide from the tourist office. It was so peaceful and quiet.

We enjoyed our visit here, except we were disappointed in the colors. It's called Greenland, but it's frozen with ice so everything is white. Also, you have to be able to punch your way past all the polar bears, which my husband Frank was able...More

A must do! But, if you are taking this tour in fall/winter be aware that the temperature out in the sea can drop up to 6/7 degrees and when the average temperature on land fluctuates already between -10 and -15 there is really no "warm...More

This is a very easy walk from the town. Even in the snow – although I was lucky that someone had walked it before. The board walk abruptly ends at the location of Sermermiut, and unfortunately I couldn’t find a path to the benches on...More

I am not sure which boat you will be on, but it could be a fisherman's boat. When we were there we had to climb down a latter to get on board. So it could be a bit tricky for you.
