Sail with the Coastal Ship in Greenland

The Ocean is Greenland’s highway connecting towns on the west coast and to experience Greenland from the seaside is something out of the ordinary. Greenlanders have always had a special relationship with the sea; survival came through the sea and they live in the middle of this amazing and unspoilt nature.

The coastal ship Sarfaq Ittuk sails along the west coast and is a safe and comfortable ship. It is smaller than most cruisers and is therefore able to dock at very small settlements and can navigate very close to whales and icebergs.
