This morning, transfer to the old heliport from where you take a private hike to the shores of the Ice Fjord and the Eskimo Ruins at Sermermiut. The pre-colonial history of Sermermiut was pieced together by a series of archaeological excavations during the twentieth century. The area became an area of archaeological interest at the start of the century, although the results were not well documented. A 1953 dig identified that Sermermiut had been used by Saqqaq, Early Dorset and Thule cultures. Another dig in 1983 dated the start of the Early Dorset settlement at around 600–200 BCE. Sermermiut was abandoned in 1850 when the last resident moved to nearby Jakobshavn (now Ilulissat).
Go for lunch at Restaurant Mamartut. Later, meet a local hunter and his dog team; you’ll learn about dog sledding in the winter and you can watch them feed the dogs.
In the afternoon, go for a 1 hour scenic flight where you will get an amazing aerial view of the ice fjord and glacier. Transfer back to hotel.
