Norse history

In the year 982 the Norse settlers, led by Erik the Red, set foot in South Greenland. They disappeared just as suddenly in the middle of the 15th century. Visit Brattahlid (Erik the Red’s farm) or Gardar (the Norse settlers’ Episcopal residence).

Meet locals

We have good contacts with sheep farms and can organize stays and visits with them. Stay overnight at a sheep farm and get an insight into the everyday life of a modern Greenlandic family. Kaffemik is a traditional Greenlandic social custom. Visit sheep farming families who open their homes to guests and invite them in for tea, coffee and cakes.

Blue Ice Café

Blue Ice Café is not just a café. Here you can buy maps, books, postcards and souvenirs and find most local tourist information. There’s also good Internet access and a small library where you can read and borrow books about the local area and the history of Greenland.

Boat trips

Blue Ice Explorer has nine boats and lots of trips in South Greenland. We are always happy to put together your trip depending on your wishes and preferences.

Northern Lights

An old legend says that the northern lights appear when the dead souls in heaven play football with a walrus skull. You can experience the phenomenon in South Greenland from the middle of August.

Icebergs

Icebergs are like unique works of art in nature. Get close to these wonders of nature with Blue Ice Explorer.

The ice Sheet

The ice sheet has covered large parts of Greenland during the last 2-3 million years. Active glaciers and constant melting ensure that new ice continues to appear. You can hike, sail or fly by helicopter to the Ice Sheet with Blue Ice Explorer from Narsarsuaq.

Fishing

Go on a daytrip to fishing spots or longer package tours with overnight stays at hotels or hostels.

Trophy hunting

Blue Ice Explorer collaborates with Lax-á travel agency, which has established a first-class wilderness camp close to the Ice Sheet west of Narsaq.
