City Sightseeing – Icefiord Boat Tour
Greenland’s capital Nuuk is a city of vitality, surrounded by immense nature and filled with vibrant Greenlanders leading fascinating lives of old traditions, modern twists, and diverse influences.
Home to gourmet restaurants, fashion boutiques, and the Northern Lights inspired Katuaq Cultural Center, Nuuk is the center of modern Greenland. However, a stroll through the picturesque Old Harbor shows that history and traditions remain strong in this growing city.
Nuuk lies in the mouth of the Nuup Kangerlua Fiord – the second largest fiord system in the world. This gives fantastic boating opportunities which will be a central part of the trip.
