Explore the Greenlandic Nature the Traditional Way

For more than 4,000 years, the Inuit have used the “qajaat” (traditional kayaks) for travelling and hunting in Greenland. Our experienced guide will explain you about the amazing nature, the old military base Kangerlussuaq and the fascinating story of the original kayak, which was made from sealskin and wood.

Thanks to our certified kayak-guides, modern equipment and safety protocols, we make it possible for you to kayak in this incredible landscape, even if you have never been kayaking before. For many of our guests it’s their first time in a kayak and we take pride in providing a safe and comfortable experience for everybody. We use double kayaks which are more stable in the water than single kayaks.

During the tour, your guide will take photos of you, while you paddle in this incredible scenery. The photos are included in the price and will be ready for download shortly after the tour.
