ERIK THE RED'S VIKING RUINS | 3 HOURS
We cross Erik's Fjord by boat and go ashore at the sheep breeding settlement Qassiarsuk, situated on the very spot where Erik the Red settled in 985 AD and named his farm "Brattahlið". We visit the ruins of Erik's farm and Thorhildur's church; the first Christian church on the American continent. This tour is guided.

QOOROQ ICE FJORD | 3 HOURS
The Greenland Ice Cap produces 250 millions tons of ice every year when icebergs break off the glaciers. Close to Narsarsuaq the Qooroq Glacier fills up the fjord with beautiful icebergs. We cruise between the icebergs and go as close to the calving glacier as possible. Here we turn off the engine to enjoy the silence only disturbed by the creaking ice. Guide service and light refreshments included.
