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.

Our Targa boat will pick us up at the Ilulissat harbor and we will sail to the small hunter’s settlement of Ilimannaq. Here your guide will take you around the village including a visit to a local shop. Ilimanaq is located on the eastern shore of Disko Bay, just south of the mouth of the Ilulissat Ice fjord. The Old Danish name of the settlement derived from the Dutch whaler Klacs Pieterz Torp. The whalers were active in the region from 1719 to 1732, leaving a trail of names behind – the settlement of Oqaatsut to the north was originally a Dutch whaling station named “Rodebay”. Claushavn was founded in 1741, around the same time as Ilulissat.

Have lunch with a local family before sailing back to Ilulissat.

In the afternoon, go to the city center for a walk to the house of a local family which you will visit for a cup of coffee/tea and a cake, a great experience to meet up with the locals of Ilulissat.
