Whale watching in Greenland

We advise to spend time and go whale watching in Greenland. On a whale watching tour you are likely to spot humpback whales, fin whales, and minke whales. But even rarer species can be seen in Greenland like beluga whales and narwhals, and for part of the year also blue whales and orcas.

While we offer whale watching tours in Disko Bay, Nuuk and Tasiilaq, it is the longer sea voyages and kayak expeditions which offer the most personal encounter with these gentle giants. Seeing whales in Greenland and hearing the breathtaking sound of them exhaling at the water’s surface is something you will never forget.
