Trip to the desert
You will get to see a different landscape altogether in the desert.
It contains so much sulphur and iron that the land is yellow. This entails a 2½ hour boat trip during which you will have the chance to see whales and icebergs.
Trip to the Great Qarajaq Glacier
We will be sailing more than 60 km from Uummannaq to the Great Qarajaq glacier on board our fast, safe and luxurious boat, the Targa.
On the way, we will have a great chance to see whales such as fin whales, humpback whales and minke. However, we will also be navigating our way through a labyrinth of massive icebergs that come from Qarajaq. There will also be time to hear how trappers and the Inuits lived in Qarajaq.
Trip to Talerua
You will have the opportunity to go exploring with us. We will be sailing for a good half hour to reach Talerua where we will tell you about how the Inuits lived in the past.
Along the way, you will have a good chance to see whales and we will be sailing among icebergs.
