Itinerary Details

Upon your arrival at colorful Nuuk, you will be greeted by a Rahhalah representative who will accompany you to the hotel.

Nuuk is the capital and largest city of Greenland, home to one-third of the country’s population. It is so remote and isolated that the other large cities in the proximity – Iqaluit and St. John's in Canada and Reykjavík in Iceland – are outside Greenland’s territory. "Nuuk" is the Kalaallisut word for "cape", and the city has adopted this name because of its position at the end of the Nuup Kangerlua fjord on the eastern shore of the Labrador Sea. Its latitude makes it the world's northernmost capital, only a few kilometers farther north than the Icelandic capital Reykjavík.

Enjoy the rest of the day at leisure, exploring the town at your own pace, before the group re-assembles in the afternoon for a briefing meeting and the welcome dinner at a local restaurant.

Accommodation: Hotel Hans Egede or similar.

Despite its small size, Nuuk occupies its own place in the unfolding of the regional events, and it is a place worth exploring to understand the local culture better. So, after breakfast, you will embark on a 3-hour guided walking tour around the city, stopping, among other sites, at the National Museum, the old colonial harbor, and a private house to get a glimpse of the local life.

Lunch at Inuk Café with scenic views over the fjord. 

In the afternoon, you will go for a short hike on the nearby mountains to enjoy panoramic views of the city. The day will end with a delicious barbeque dinner in the open air.

Accommodation: Hotel Hans Egede or similar.

After breakfast, you will take a sailing boat through the fjord to reach the starting point of your hiking trail. The trip itself is part of the adventure, as you will be surrounded by ancient, towering mountains and otherworldly landscapes (sailing time: approx. 1.5 hours).

The hiking trail will take you through the stunning landscapes of a remote valley, with various picturesque stops, and a longer lunch break amidst mountains, water and wildlife.

The hike will end at a small, isolated restaurant – the only in the entire fjord. It is well known by the locals as a get-away for the inhabitants of the urban centers. There, the chef will share details about the local ingredients he uses and how life unfolds so far away from civilization. After dinner, you will return to the city by boat, passing through waterfalls and scenic mountains.

Hiking details: elevation gain: 300 m; hiking time: 4-5 hours.

Accommodation: Hotel Hans Egede or similar.

After breakfast, you will check-out from the hotel, heading to the countryside and your glamping adventure.

Once again, you will take a boat to reach the camping site. The cruise is about 80-km long and goes deep into the world's second-largest fjord formation. Along the way, you will scout for humpback whales that often traverse these waters.

Upon arrival at the camp, you will go on a short hike to a beautiful waterfall nearby, before settling in your tents, surrounded by silence and comfort.

Our luxury adventure camp is set in an exclusive and remote destination, deep into the majestic Nuuk fjord. Despite its seclusion, it offers modern amenities and facilities.
Each tent (double sharing) is very large with ample space to stand; it comes with 2 single beds fully lined, a small table with chairs, a wood stove, with eco-toilet, and hot shower facilities.
You will also be able to relax your muscles in the outdoor Hot Tub and the Sauna of the campsite.
A dedicated chef will prepare traditional, fresh food which will be served in the relaxing lounge/dining tent.
This is a place to disconnect from the modern world and reconnect with yourself and nature.

Overnight stay at the luxury camp.

In the morning, you will take a boat cruise to the Kapisillit area: a notorious Greenlandic Salmon breeding spot. Prepare to fish with your bare hands or with traditional rods, and then enjoy lunch next to the river.

From there, you will walk to the Kapisillit settlement to explore the village and interact with some of its 50 inhabitants, especially while sharing coffee with them in a simple private home. The Inuit tribe that inhabits the isolated regions of the Arctic, Greenland, and Canada, shares a fascinating culture, full of daily routines, rituals, challenges, and opportunities. It is a privilege to discover many of these details through your interaction with the locals, while listening at the stories they will be happy to share with you.

Sailing further into the fjord, you will reach the starting point of a hiking trail that will take you directly to the shore of the ice fjord. The moment the ice fjord emerges at the horizon is an unforgettable memory that may become one of the highlights of the trip.

You will then sail back to the camp to enjoy a delicious dinner prepared by the chef.

Hiking details: 1-1,5 hours each way (so, total, 2-3 hours).

In the afternoon, you will sail back to the camp where a warm dinner and a hot tub will await for you after a long day out in the open. Enjoy the last gourmet dinner prepared by the chef, and the final night of your glamping adventure, surrounded by silence, serenity, and meditative peace.
