This is the ideal opportunity for enthusiastic hikers to get out into the real Greenlandic wilderness, and experience trekking in Arctic nature up close and personal.

Upon reaching the picturesque village Oqaatsut, enjoy a delicious lunch at the beautiful H8 Restaurant, a lovingly restored former trading post which serves authentic Greenlandic food prepared using local ingredients.

From here, you will be driven back to Ilulissat with a local boat captain, past the huge icebergs which characterize Disko Bay.
