  • Day 2: Nuuk at your Leisure

    Spend the day experiencing Nuuk and its surroundings at your leisure! We recommend visiting the old harbour, with great views over the old part of Nuuk. There you will find the Greenland National Museum, which showcases over 4000 years of Greenlandic history, including well-preserved Inuit mummies discovered in the 1960s. If you’re interested in seeing more of the old vs. new contrasts, check out the architecturally-renowned Katuaq cultural centre that showcases various contemporary works by Greenlandic artists.

    Note: We recommend booking optional activities in advance through your travel consultant at Nordic Visitor, though you may also book activities at your hotel in Nuuk during your stay

  • Day 3: More Free Time in Nuuk

    Enjoy another day to explore on your own. Nuuk is a great destination to participate in optional activities like guided hikes, city walks, bus tours and boat safaris. One such option is a tour to Kangeq that brings to life the story of Hans Egede, who is considered to be the founder of Nuuk.

Reviews

We don’t like to brag, so we’ll let our happy customers do it for us.

Wonderful

In September, hiking in Ice fiord area is wonderful. The area turned from green to reddish colours within two weeks. A lot of wild berries lied along the undulating hillside. On the far hillside, we saw the first snow and winter was round the corner.

Accommodation

Sleep soundly, in the accommodation type of your choice, and wake up ready to enjoy another day of exploration.

Comfort Plus

Standard rooms in good quality and comfortable three-star hotels in combination with well-appointed guesthouses or country hotels.
