Greenland Destination Guide



A traditional and more intimate way to explore.

Greenland is known as the birthplace of the word “kayak”, so it’s not surprising that one of the most popular activities you’ll have the opportunity to participate in is kayaking. Traditional kayaks were made of drift wood, animal skin and bones. You can experience kayaking in Greenland by taking a more contemporary kayak out; professional guides will show you all the nooks and crannies of this wondrous land and steer you around immeasurable icebergs. A kayak demonstration will show Eskimo rolls amongst other tricks.

Feel an extreme nearness to nature as you kayak around massive fjords, gliding over crystal-clear waters along the rugged coastline that has been paddled by the Inuit for thousands of years. Hear the sounds of Greenland—the calls of seabirds, the crunch of the ice and sounds of the abundant wildlife—from the surface of the sea. Did You Know? There is a rich history of kayaking in Greenland, a cultural symbol of its people and its birthplace.
