Nuuk (Godthåb - Neu Herrenhut) the capital of Greenland, has a population of about 15,000. An excursion should include a visit to the museum which has a remarkable collection of Inuit mummies, dating from the 15th Century, which were found near Uummannaq, further to the north. The Cultural Center of Nuuk, which each year has an exhibition of the work of a Greenlandic artist, is also worth visiting. The waters to the west of the town are a good place to see humpback whale and blue whale.
Sail past Flade Isblink and keep a lookout for humpback whale and minke whale. Later, the ship may sail past Pamiut into Kuanersoq (Kvanefjord) to the island of Qeqertaq at the head of the fjord, and make a landing at Ivnarssup qava, an accessible and beautiful lake.
In Ivittuut walk along the remains of a Cryolite mine and around a small cemetery connected with it. In this area see musk oxen, which were introduced into the area in the last century. Some way into the fjord you can admire the beautiful Fox Waterfall, and at the head of the fjord, you may see the front of the Arsuk Glacier. Then, the ship may sail into the Ika Fjord, where from the zodiac we can see the phantastic underwater columns of calcium carbonate hexahydrate.
Today sail to the beautiful glacier fronts of Qaleralik Sermia, where you will have some zodiac excursions and make some landings near the glacier. Deeper into Bredefjord at Qoornooq, land in an area with beautiful remains of houses from the Thule culture.
Reach Lichtenau, a lovely but nearly deserted Greenlandic village, where the Herrnhuters had a mission in the 18th Century, and where still some of their large buildings remain. Try to get to Uunartoq, where you can bathe in a large hot spring surrounded by icebergs. Close to it is Igdlorpait, another abandoned Moravian Mission.

Kate was great to work with in the planning stage. She was prompt, helpful, and efficient. Our tour guide, Edwin, was knowledgeable and passionate. We were very happy to have traveled with Adventure Life, it made the trip easy and a true pleasure. We could concentrate on enjoying the experience rather than the details of travel.
