Ice Fishing Adventure
The tour begins at the old quarry Stenbruddet, where your local guide will be waiting to for you. After putting on some winter coveralls, you will traverse the tundra of Store Akinnaq on a snow scooter, allowing for marvellous views of the winter landscape. Across the vast rough terrain we continue until we reach the frozen fjord of Sikuiuitsoq. Here we'll harness up the dogs on the sled for them to pull us over the last stretch of ice to the fishing site.
The longline has been cast out, and to prepare lunch we'll take the first fish to be drawn forth form the depths off the hook, just as local fishermen do. A tent has been set up in case we're in need of shelter, and here we can warm up with a cup of coffee or tea. Once all hooks have been drawn up and the catch has been taken care of, we'll embark for the trip back to town.
This is a fantastic opportunity to experience the daily life as it still is for many Greenlanders up close.
The trip the the fishing spot is hard and uneven terrain so a strong back and good mobility is essential on this tour.
Even when wearing coveralls it may be chilly on a long day outside. Please bring extra clothes, preferably more layers.
On this tour only the guide drives the snowmobile.
