ILULISSAT KAYAKING MORNING
Paddle in a kayak and witness the overwhelming beauty of icebergs coming from the Ilulissat Icefjord.
Kayaking in Ilulissat is a unique activity for two reasons. The first one is very obvious, kayaking is possibly the best way to experience the Ilulissat Icefjord (UNESCO World Heritage Site). Being at the sea level, without any sound and just using your own body to sail among icebergs, makes it very special.
The second one, perhaps not that known among people visiting us, is that 4,000 years ago, people already used “qajaat” (traditional kayaks) for travelling and hunting here in Ilulissat.
Our experienced and certified kayaking guides, modern expedition equipment and safety protocols make it possible for you to kayak among icebergs, even if you have never been on a kayak before. Besides, they will introduce you to the fascinating world of the original kayak “qajaq”, invented in Greenland and made out of drifting wood and animal skin.
We start meeting at PGI Greenland office and gearing up. After a short walk to the charming historic center of Ilulissat, we will start our activity, which embraces all the wonders from this destination.
Join us in a unique experience in Ilulissat!
