We propose a short but full of adventure break in Greenland that will help us to intensively know both sides of Greenland. On the one hand his last nature: navigation close to some of the largest glacier fronts in South Greenland, the opportunity of taking an impressive kayak excursion surrounded by icebergs, the Flower Valley hike and the great Kiattut glacier view… Secondly, its people and traditions when visiting the idyllic village of Qassiarsuk and its viking ruins.
The treks are quite easy, approximately 3 or 4 hours walking, and suitable for most abilities. For the kayak optional excursion, previous experience in kayaking is not required.
Flight from Keflavik (Iceland’s international airport) or Copenhagen to Narsarsuaq-Greenland. Reception at the airport and transfer to the Hotel for check-in and briefing. Afterwards, speed boat excursion to the Qooroq Fjord, where one of the most active glaciers in Southern Greenland can be found, navigating to the area where iceberg density will make it impossible to carry on, and which is, with no doubt, one of Greenland’s best sceneries.
Accommodation at Hotel Narsarsuaq. Twin/double room with private facilities.
Boat transfer from Narsarsuaq to Qassiarsuk (former Brattahlid, capital of Viking Greenland). Walk through the village of about 50 inhabitants and guided tour of the Viking ruins of Brattahlid, learning the history of the arrival of Eric the Red from Iceland at this small settlement in 985. Of particular interest are the reconstructions of a Viking house (spacious but cold) and an inuit dwelling (small but warmer), transporting us back in time to the harsh conditions in which these people lived and it definitely shows us how the Inuit knew how to adapt better to the progressive cooling of the climate.
This Norse and Greenlandic core farming area were in 2017 inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List under the title Kujataa Greenland
After the cultural visit it’s time to action: 4×4 trip to the beautiful Tasiusaq farm, where seven people live in notable isolation next to Sermilik fjord, which is almost always blocked by the ice from icebergs coming from Eqaloruutsit glacier. Pic nic at the Tasiusaq Hostel or outdoors if weather permitting.
Optional Excursion: Kayak Excursion in the “Iceberg Bay”, a 2 hour sea kayaking trip for beginners among icebergs in one of the safest and nicest places in Greenland. Way back to Qassiarsuk and boat transfer to Narsarsuaq. Accommodation at Hotel Narsarsuaq. Twin/double room with private facilities.
We reserve the morning for the most famous hike in south Greenland, the Flower Valley. A spectacular hike with sights of the Kiattut river and glacier. You will enjoy the spectacular view of this valley formed due to the retreat and the consequent glacial sedimentation with plenty of flowers.
Afterwards, we can visit Bluie West One museum in Narsarsuaq. This visit is strongly recommended as the reflection of the town history from ancient times and, more specifically, its role in the Second World War.
Flight from Narsarsuaq to Keflavik (Iceland’s international airport).
