The Hunter’s Settlement – Rodebay

from £188
6 hours Year round

Introduction

Travelling by boat to the small settlement of Oqaitsut/Rodebay, this tour takes visitors to a traditional hunter’s settlement.

With a population of only 80 people, life here is very different than even in the nearby town of Ilulissat and life is entirely dependent on the hunting and fishing that takes place here.

A traditional past time in the north where the brief growing season and rugged tundra prevented agriculture taking hold, hunting has sustained the people of Greenland since they first settled here over a millenium ago.

Still a vital aspect of their lifestyle, they hunt the area’s marine and land animals sustainably and their sustenance is entirely dependent upon this skill. A guided walking tour will take you through the village itself where you can witness this way of life first hand and you will enjoy lunch at the old trading station before your return. Includes lunch.

Please note that this excursion is subject to pack ice and 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.

Duration: 6 hours (approximately)
Price: from £188 per person, including lunch
