JNS5KEF: Narsaq; An Arctic Village / 5 days

Narsaq is known as the Pearl of South Greenland. It is a charming village, where you can get a feel for the real Greenland and enjoy the Arctic nature up close with a fertile plain suitable for easy hikes and walks. There are also excellent day tour options available as the Inland Ice Cap and several glaciers are located not far from the town.

Narsaq

Narsaq is a small but beautiful village located in the amazing fjord systems of South Greenland.

Just out side the village you will be able to visit the Inland Ice Cap and several glaciers. They are all easily accessible by boat on one of our many excursions in the area. In the outskirt of the village you will see Kvanefjeldet tower majestically - a mountain which is known to be teeming with different minerals, it may well play an important role in Greenland's future focus on the mining industry.

Narsarsuaq

This tour includes a short stay in Narsarsuaq, the area where Eric the Red decided to settle and where he found inspiration to name the new land: Greenland. It has recently been awarded UNESCO World Heritage status.

Beside the viking history that dominates the area Narsarsuaq is also the only international airport of South Greenland with quite an amazing military history.
