Ikateq Village by Boat

Price on request
5 hours Year round


Traveling southward, guests on this excursion make their way through the frigid waters along Greenland’s coast to the entrance of the vast and often ice-filled Sermilik fjord.

Here, three different glaciers reach down towards the waters, releasing pieces of ancient ice to float as bergs out to sea. The traditional village of Ikateq is found here, standing alongside some of the area’s most impressive icebergs.

Remains of earlier stone and turf houses stand beside the colourful wooden dwellings of today and a charming church, also the town’s schoolhouse, makes its humble presence known in the midst of these houses.

Summer travellers will travel here by boat and whales are often spotted en route, while those arriving in winter will come overland by dogsled.

Please note that this excursion is subject to pack ice, weather conditions and may require minimum numbers to operate. For these reasons we are not able to pre-book the excursion before you travel. All activities must be booked and paid for locally.
