8 Day Tour Local life in Scoresby Sound, Greenland
Scoresby Sound in Greenland is an extremely unique place in this world. Have you ever thought you needed more time for yourself? Holidays don’t have to be packed with expensive activities. They can also be about doing absolutely nothing – that is to say, about something special.
- Arctic nature
- The Inuit way of life
- Time to relax and clear your mind of daily worries
- Northern Lights
Enjoy the endless views, check the weather and admire the ever-changing light. Watch the hunters go by on their dog sledges on their way to and from the ice-edge. Go for a walk or ski out on the ice, wait for seals to pop up or a flock of narwhals to surface. Experience a blizzard with only your (warm) clothes for protection or in warm comfort through a window pane. Ride to town on a dog sledge to do some shopping. Come in out of the cold, enjoy a simple, nourishing meal. Listen to the howling of the sledge dogs. Enjoy the Northern Lights in the winter season. Enjoy a good night’s sleep and wake up naturally with no schedule to keep the Greenlandic way. Appreciate life.
The tiny village of Uunartoq, at the mouth of Scoresby Sund at 70° north, is an ideal location to get away from it all – literarily. With only one other village in the area, Ittoqqortoormiit with fewer than 500 inhabitants, the mountainous expanse of North East Greenland, can be mind-boggling.
Life here is very basic. Its simplicity and harshness is a revelation to most people. As if to compensate for the exterior conditions, the Greenlanders are friendly and happy people that will greet even brief visitors with a smile.
As there is no hotel in Uunartoq, we offer you to stay in our home away from home with meals and packed lunches. If you prefer, we can also arrange your private hunter’s cabin nearby with self-catering, except for supper in the main house.
