Kayaking in Ilulissat
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 in Greenland and most of the Inuit region.
Thanks to our experienced and certified kayaking guides, modern expedition equipment and safety protocols, we make it possible for you to kayak among icebergs, even if you have never been kayaking 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.
The duration of our activities includes the time to gear-up / dress-up, safety briefings and transfers to departure points. The time spent in the water paddling is 2 hours.
