Close to the ice on boat tour
Get close enough to reach the glacier giants and icebergs with guided boat tours through the fjords. Even the shortest boat trips allow you to navigate through the floating icebergs on the sea. Also in summer the East Greenland stream, the largest ice stream of the world,
carries huge floating ice sheets from the arctic sea and North Pole along Greenland’s east coast into the south, where you can see countless icebergs in all sizes, shapes and colours. During any trip there is always the chance to see whales and seals.
Within easy reach of the ice giants – an unforgettable experience.
Picnic on an ice floe
The longer tours bring you to the glacier fronts which directly calve into the sea. You also can circumnavigate Ammassalik Island within one full day along steeply breaking rocky cliffs which rise vertically from the sea. You have the option to climb an ice floe or even an iceberg and float in the fjord. You can be sure that our skippers - all experienced Greenlanders – choose the right ice floe or iceberg where you then can enjoy a tea or coffee.
Please contact the local Red House office to find out about the best tour options. We offer various day trips around the island and in the surrounding fjords, to the inland ice and to the giant glacier front of Rasmussen glacier. Furthermore, transfers to Kulusuk or to your individual expedition or trekking tour starting points are also possible. All tours are arranged from day to day on the spot.

Whale watching in the arctic ice
East Greenland is one of the few regions in the world where you can watch whales in the drift ice. Depending on the season you can spot orcas, finback, humpback whale, narwhale or sei whale and seals. The best season is in the summer months from July to September when the pack ice is breaking and the whale can easily come to the surface to breath.
