In South Greenland you will find excellent arctic char fishing. The numerous rivers around Narsarsuaq (Tunulliarfik Fjord) are a paradise for anglers. Some of the rivers are clear and perfect for fly fishing. Others flow directly from glaciers and are clouded with fine silt. In both cases, however, you will find an abundance of fish!

Accommodation at hotel with private or shared facilities.

Breakfast included.
Dinner and lunch packets can be ordered at the hotels.
If you want to prepare your own dinner of freshly caught fish, this can be arranged at the hostel.

All fishing spots require a certain amount of walking. The maximal walk is about 1 hour through open terrain.

All our package tours are self-guided. This means that you are not a part of a bigger group with a tour leader to guide you around.
We will send you very detailed information about the tour before you arrive in Greenland.

Tour season
The season for fishing in the rivers is from mid-July to the end of September. You can start this tour every day of the week and are free to choose your own pace and what to see and do each day. Just let us know which date/flight you will arrive with and we will book the tour for you as desired.

Day 1
Arrival in Narsarsuaq. Info at our office at the Blue Ice Café.
Accommodation Narsarsuaq for 5 nights.

Day 2
Boat transfer to Ilua River and fishing for one day. Ilua is one of the best clear-water rivers in the area. The river is about 4 km long and ends in a 3 km long lake. The river has both strong currents and areas with clear pools, so you can use a spinner and engage in fly fishing. Furthermore, you can fish at both ends of the lake. You must walk for about one hour from the place where the boat drops you off.

Day 3
Boat transfer to Qinngua River and fishing for one day. The river is fed with meltwater from the big glaciers north of Narsarsuaq. Our experience is that this is the place where you catch the biggest char (up to 5 kg) and there is a good chance, that you can catch a glimpse of white-tailed eagles soaring overhead. The fishing spot is about a half an hour’s walk along the river from where the boat drops you off.

Day 4 and 5
Free choice of fishing (not included). Qinngua River, Qorlortoq River, Narsarsuaq River or other locations. Qorlortoq River is a minor river with a pool and a waterfall, where you can actually see the char jump as they work their way upstream! Narsarsuaq River consists of meltwater from the nearby glacier mixed with some clear-water creeks. You will find excellent fishing conditions at these spots.

Day 6
Free choice of fishing in the morning (not included) or boat trip to the Qooroq Ice Fjord (not included). You can spend the rest of your stay enjoying a cup of coffee at the cosy Blue Ice Café and/or visiting the museum in Narsarsuaq. Departure Narsarsuaq.

Please note! The itinerary of this package is subject to change due to weather and water conditions in the rivers.
