Visit to Settlement

Visit to Settlement

The boat tour to Ilimanaq is an opportunity to visit an old and almost untouched Inuit settlement and, at the same time, sail among the massive icebergs that lay at the mouth of the Ilulissat icefjord.
The boat leaves Ilulissat harbour at 10 am with direction Ilimanaq. Before reaching the village the boat will cross the famous Ilulissat Icefjord with it´s massive icebergs. In Ilimanaq you will have a couple of hours where you can visit the village in particular the little church that was built in 1904.

In Ilimanaq is possible to arrange lunch at a local Greenlandic family. The family will cook the traditional Greenlandic dish called Suasast – a soup with rice, vegetables and meat (usually seal) or fish. During lunch Regine will tell you stories and fact about the village the way it was and the way it is.

On request we can also arrange with Regine a traditional caffe-mik – a greenlandic buffet based of dry and smoked fish and seal, cakes and biscuits and, of course, coffee. At 2pm the boat will sail back to Ilulissat crossing the icefjord again. Arrival in Ilulissat is around 4pm.
