A photographers dream
Whether you are a photographer or just love nature, birds or small communities, this tour is for you.
On this trip we will sail through many icebergs; big and small ones, and of course, we will stop in each one of them.
In the Uummannaq fjord we have many bird cliffs (steep cliffs with numerous
small shelves which
serve as nesting locations for bird colonies) that stand up vertically in the air. Some of them are more than 1,000 meters high!
The Uummannaq fjord is also known for being rich in minerals and having
ferrous mountains. One of them is known for looking like
a lunar landscape. This mountain is full of colors, mainly red and yellow. We will bring you ashore and you will be
able to experience the moon landscape on a very close hand.
The Uummannaq fjord is characterized by, among other things, it’s glaciers. One of them is located at the bottom of the fjord and is called Sermilik, which means “the place with ice”. In Sermilik we will turn off the engine to be able to hear and appreciate the majestic sounds that come from inside the ice sheet.
The glaciers, specially this one, are rich in wildlife; you can spot seals,
whales, various bird species and a good stock of halibut. Here they have great
find food, that’s why is an attractive place for the fisherman too. In this place, while we appreciate nature, we will enjoy an amazing local lunch. Do you imagine a better place to have lunch at?
After this, we will head towards one of the nearby settlements, called Ikerasak. Ikerasak means “the area that comes after the fjord”. In this area we can find more than one island. In Ikerasak, a local family will be waiting for us, ready with a delicious coffee. After the coffee break we will visit the village and explore all its surroundings.
In the late afternoon, we will head towards Paarnat, which means “the place
with blackberries”. In Paarnat you will find two fishing huts that have
been used for many decades. On top of the island there’s also a very nice waterfall, which emerges from a glacier. Here, we will be able to hear the
roar of the mighty waterfall.
