How to see puffin in Greenland?
I’ve personally travelled with Nuuk Water Taxi, and it has been a very good experience: it was just 4 passengers, we went straight to the small islet where there is a very concentrated population of puffins. We stayed there for around 1 and a half hour, plenty of time to take THOUSANDS of photography. The tour was in the evening, so in summer time it is perfect to catch the golden light of the sunset (kind of sunset, since the sun almost never set in summer).
