Welcome to Sisimiut! Your transfer from the airport to Hotel SØMA is arranged and you can enjoy the view over the harbour and the mountains during the drive to Sisimiut. Today you will check in and receive the program for your stay. The rest of the day is at your leisure. 

Day 2: Sailing to the abandoned village

Your captain will be welcoming you onboard at the local harbour. From here you will embark on a unique journey to the abandoned settlement of Assaqutaq, located on an island 13 km east of Sisimiut. Your captain will be your guide and will tell you all about this mysterious place as you explore the abandoned buildings. Sailing takes about 30 minutes and if you are lucky, whales or seals will keep you company.

You will stroll through the historical town, the harbour and visit places where the locals sell their catch of the day and where the Greenlandic sled dogs are situated.
