It gets cold at sea, so take extra warm cloth on. Use the multi-layer system, so you can adjust your body temperature.

Later afternoon or early evening we will head of searching for Northern light. Your guide will tell you about the myths and histories, and give you insight in a life in darkness by the edge of the world.
Day 3, wednesday in October – Sermermiut UNESCO hike and sauna visit
After breakfast we will hike up and into the Sermemiut Valley, which probably will be one of the most beautiful hikes you will ever experience. It is not hard, it is not long, but the views over Kangia Icefjord is a sight to behold! The place is on the UNESCO list of world heritage sites, and it is here where you can experience with your own ice, the “emptying” of ice into the ocean from the Ice Cap. 10% of all ice coming from the ice cap, goes through this narrow straight. On our way to the fjord, we will come across very old Inuit settlements.
Lunch on your own in town or at the guesthouse.
Upon your return we will heat up the sauna for you to get the heat back in your body and enjoy some relaxing time from our panoramic sauna and enjoy the sunset from the guesthouse.
