    The tour starts from the Old Colonial harbor of Nuuk, and from here we make our way into the fiord. We will be sailing in a Targa cabin boat, with heated cabin and seatings for all guests ind the cabin. The mountains provide a beautiful scenery, and as we get closer to them you might feel them connect with your soul. You must come to the office at the Old Colonial harbor 15 minutes prior to your tour. When you are going on an adventure/excursion, then it is highly recommended to bring both camera and binoculars. It is also advisable to bring warm clothes. On this boat, there is a cabin, but prepare and bring clothes that keep you warm.

My final of 3 trips and I loved it as much as the first. Captain Inuk is a real King. I had a real blast with Nuuk Water Taxi and got to explore two different areas to the north and south and appreciate the beautiful fjords. Great staff. What more can you ask for? 5/5

We booked this tour to our journey in August 2018 and we didn't know what is going to this boat tour. After it we were so happy what we saw:
Wonderful water, very interesting landscape, icebergs, waterfalls and lots of other things. Many thanks to our guide and these unforgettable moments. Marc, Pia und Klaus

Great time on the adventure! Everyone from the person handling the arrangements to the boat Captain was extremely helpful and friendly. They made the extra effort to ensure we had a great time. We had scheduled our tour for a Friday and received a call on Thursday morning letting us know the weather was projected to be bad on Friday and asked if we would like to go on Thursday instead. We changed to Thursday and had an extremely good experience. The beauty was breathtaking!

We were in Nuuk for 3 days and decided to book a tour on the 1st day. All tours were booked, including this one. However, since they knew we were leaving in a couple of days, they were kind enough to book us a private boat fjord tour after their regular business hours. They were so very accommodating and offered life suits to place over our winter gear. They also provided tea to warm us up. This tour was like being inside a painting. The beauty we witnessed was insane.
