Ilulissat Tourist Nature works with local families in Ilulissat who welcome visitors into their homes for a kaffemik – the traditional Greenlandic social event where the people eat, drink and socialise in a casual setting.

Step inside a Greenlandic home, take a closer look at the beautiful national costume and find out more about everyday life in the far north. The families will be only too pleased to answer your questions and will probably be curious to find out something about you too.

You can also try feeding the dogs when they come back after a hard day of sledding. There are up to 4,000 dogs in Ilulissat, and an hour spent with a local fisherman will give you a unique insight into fishing traditions and the many subtleties of dog sledding.
