Sailing to the settlement Oqaatsut/Rodebay

Price per person from

Small, isolated communities are very special in Greenland. They have both internet access and flatscreen TVs in the settlements, but life is lived at a different pace. Looking just one generation back most people lived in the small settlement, where as today the vast majority of the Greenlandic population lives in the towns. In the area around Ilulissat you do still have four vibrant settlements. One of these is the settlement of Oqaatsut, also known as Rodebay.

For centuries Oqaatsut was the place to go for Dutch whalers, which is where the name Rodebay comes up. Still to this day whales are being dragged in from the ocean here at the little settlement. The old settlement is located in the fantastic surroundings of great nature app. 15 km north of Ilulissat, and has around 45 inhabitants. Oqaatsut has its own school, church, grocery store, and even the small restaurant “H8”, which has been set up in one of the old colonial buildings.
