B4RKV: South Greenland Explorer / 4 days
Departures from Reykjavik Dom. Airport

A wonderful introduction to South Greenland. Experience the quaint town of Narsaq before you travel to Narsarsuaq which borders an area which has recently been awarded UNESCO World Heritage status. There is plenty to see; from hikes to the Inland Ice Cap to remains from both the Inuit and Viking settlers that once lived in the area.

Narsaq

Narsaq (meaning The Plain in Greenlandic) is a charming town known for its colourful wooden houses, where modern living is mixed with ancient traditions. It is the youngest town in Greenland, founded as late as in 1959. 

It is an area of great geological and historic interest; several interesting minerals can be found only a short hike from the town in the Kvanefjæld area as well as the Viking ruins of Dyrnæs and the Landnamsgård which are among the oldest Norsemen ruins found in South Greenland dating back to AD 1000.

The history of the Norsemen is on display at the museum, and a local rock picker has created his own exhibit about minerals and rocks, including the rare mineral, Tugtupit which so far has only been found in very few places worldwide. The mountain known as Qaqqarsuaq behind the town contains coveted minerals and attracts many rock pickers and others who have an interest in geology.

Narsarsuaq

Historic UNESCO World Heritage sites from the Viking Age, fertile mountains with sheep farms, deep blue fjords with multi-coloured icebergs, calving glaciers - and everything within short range from your hotel.
Narsarsuaq offers the most varied excursion programme in Greenland: Iceberg and glacier cruises, hiking tours to the Inland Ice Cap, Viking ruins, tiny settlements and Greenlandic towns.
