South Greenland

Experience the ultimate highlights of South Greenland and the Arctic nature. This tour will take you around the 'Golden Triangle' of South Greenland covering most aspects of Greenlandic history and everyday life in the Arctic.

Qaqortoq

Qaqortoq is the biggest town in South Greenland with a population of just over 3000. Situated near the big lake "Storesøen" with rising mountains as a backdrop, Qaqortoq is where many students come to study, and therefore the town is full of life for most of the year. This is also where FIFA has decided to sponsor the only grass covered soccer field in Greenland. Old colony houses show the history of the town, while new big modern houses rise up along the cliff wall, all with splendid views over the open sea. A real town of contrasts.

Narsarsuaq

Historic 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.
