About this activity
The day starts sailing towards Oqaatsut, a small Inuit village where 37 people live all year round. In Greenland, unlike most of the places of

the world, the boat is the main mean of transport. 

Once in the settlement, we go on a small walk and tell you about the everyday life of its inhabitants. We then do some local activities, traditionalfrom the village with the assistance of its inhabitants. The activity we do is subject to the season and the activities that local people do, such as learning how to cook and smoke fish, how to cut and dry it for storage, collecting wild plants and flowers to make tea, feed the sled dogs with their musher, repair a fishing net, build a sled, etc. Our local English speaking guide will translate so you understand and learn about the Greenlandic reality.

The day in the settlement will finish with a visit to a local family and a traditional lunch made with local ingredients. After a lovely meal, we

sail back to Ilulissat.
