We are offering visitors the opportunity to visit one of the most beautiful villages in Greenland, Ilimanaq (formerly known as Claushavn).
The settlement is located south of Ilulissat Icefjord and overlooks Disko Bay, thereby providing a stunning view of the gigantic icebergs floating in the water.
The sail takes approximately 1.5 hours (depending on the amount of ice in the fjord) from Ilulissat to Ilimanaq. Along the way, we will pass huge icebergs at the mouth of the Ilulissat Icefjord, which in 2004 was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
A local and experienced guide will give you a tour of the small settlement, which has just under one-hundred inhabitants and a small school for the ten to fifteen school children who haven’t reached eighth grade yet. While touring the small settlement takes a short amount of time, it is possible to explore the surrounding area and take a stroll along the beautiful coastline. We can also arrange for you to have lunch with a local family (price DKK 150, -), before heading back to Ilulissat. On the return journey, the chances of spotting whales are good, meaning you can tick this off your bucket-list as well.
Please note there is a minimum of eight persons required for the activity to go ahead.
