It is important to note that transfers between land and yacht is facilitated by zodiac boats, as there are no harbors available throughout the Scoresby Sound area.

    Temperatures in the area typically range between 2 and 12°C (35-54°F), with minimal rainfall. While it can be windy at times, clear and calm days can bring forth strong sunlight. The prevailing high-pressure systems over Greenland often result in calm weather conditions.
  • Will we use a lot of sails?
    Due to the calm weather conditions, narrow fjords, and numerous icebergs in the area, we primarily rely on the engine for propulsion when navigating through the fjord system. However, whenever possible and time permits, we will raise the sails.

    If you have concerns about seasickness, it is advisable to take precautions. While we cannot guarantee that you won't experience seasickness, it's better to be prepared and take preventative measures, especially if you haven't been at sea before. It's important to note that the sea in Scoresby Sound fjord is generally very calm, reducing the likelihood of experiencing seasickness.
