Sailing with Blue Ice

The best way to travel around South Greenland is definitely by boat. There are no roads or railways connecting the towns in Greenland, so sailing and flying are the only means of transport. But travelling by boat is so much more than just a way to get from A to B. It is a great opportunity to experience the amazing landscape that surrounds you. Compared to even less densely populated parts of the island farther north, the distances in South Greenland are relatively short, so you can travel quickly and easily between towns and villages.

For travellers who only need boat tickets between towns in South Greenland, please refer to Disko Line’s website, where it is possible to book tickets for the regular service online.

If you need to get to other destinations in South Greenland, such as settlements and sheep farms, or at times that do not fit with the Disko Line’s scheduled plan, please feel free to contact us. Blue Ice sails almost daily between Narsarsuaq, Qassiarsuk, Itilleq (Igaliku) and Sillisit during the summer, and often to the towns of Narsaq and Qaqortoq.
We set the exact departure times 1-2 weeks before departure based on our bookings.
