Paradise Valley, nestled far behind one of the deepest fjords, this landscape was part of the rich hunting grounds the Inuits used as larders back in the 15th and 16th centuries. During a millennia of hunting, Paradise Valley has been an important part the rich Greenlandic hunting traditions and cultural landscape. The Inuits were drawn to the area from far and wide, coming to pursue reindeer and other wildlife, while the Europeans came along later on in the 17th century mainly for the quest for whales in the area between Sisimiut and the southern coast of Disko Island. Paradise Valley also became a base for trading of prey and hunting accessories between the Europeans and the local Inuit hunters.
Paradise Valley is a must see and has become our most beloved tour out of our Kangerlussuaq base, for its shear beauty and rich historical meaning. Flying through the deep valley and staying below the top of the mountains on the side, we take you through the twist and turns instructed by the valley itself. Passing along vigorous waterfalls and rock slides to the side, we start the journey from the narrow entrance to the valley and move towards the inland ice where we witness how the valley broadens up.
