Arctic Fishing with a Dashing Dane
This area of Greenland has been inhabited for over four millennia and some things haven't changed too drastically--like fishing for your dinner. Far up in the arctic circle you'll find the ruggedly handsome Bo Lings, a local who runs Sirius Greenland. His company offers a variety of commercial and small-group adventures. I climbed onboard the boat for a half-day fishing excursion along the icy waters of Sisimiut. Bo--and some technology--located a school of cod, which we reeled in with animalistic glee. (Having never hunted or even fished before, this oddly awakened an unknown satisfaction in catching your own food.) Our captain gutted and cleaned the catch and cooked it up in a simple sauce of salt and butter. I've never had a fresher dish. This experience is singular, as is Bo's knowledge of Greenland, the commercial fishing industry and climate change. Go, if for no other reason, than to get the real deal from a true Arctic insider.
