We fly low into Qaqortoq fiord to experience how the landscape becomes greener for every mile, fly past the agricultural research- and education center of Upernaviarsuk and continue towards the foot of a 3000 foot granite wall, where the best preserved ruins of Norse church and agricultural area lies.
During the 30 minute landing, you can walk into the old stone buildings and follow the trails between others, preserved to easily visualize the old way of life of the mysterious Vikings.
On the way back, we fly past –and depending on weather- above the dramatic mountain range of Killavaat, a comb-shaped, knife-sharp, 4500 feet high ridgeline before descending easily back to Qaqortoq, while we gaze at the glaciers and icebergs in the distance.
We booked them independently when we came on August 28, 2019 on the Caribbean Princess. When no one (at Princess or other local operators) wouldn’t answer my emails, Sermeq always did, and usually within an hour of mine being sent, including prompt Monday morning responses to weekend emails. Pilu was amazing, and quoted us a very reasonable price for a helicopter tour for the two places we asked for (Hvalsey and ice cap). When other vendors left us hanging, Pilu always replied and that was always appreciated. The tour itself exceeded all superlatives. We started at the ice cap. Seeing it from above and then landing on it was without doubt the most profound experience I have ever had travelling (and I’m well-traveled). Spectacular breathtaking, amazing. Hvalsey was really neat as well, and a nice experience to think about the mysteries of the Vikings (Norse). The trips on the helicopter itself cannot be overlooked. Probably nearly an hour of flight (combining the legs) of spectacular views of fjords, ice sheets, glaciers, ice bergs, inlets, steep mountains carved valleys, and the beauty that is Greenland. For me, it was a 2 hour trip that I will remember forever. I cannot think of a better return on the money.
