Arrival Narsarsuaq. Info in the airport, and boat
transfer to Qaqortoq (duration about two hours).
Accommodation in Qaqortoq for two nights.
Qaqortoq, which means "The White", is the biggest
town in South Greenland with 3500 inhabitants. Qaqortoq is
the education centre for South Greenland with grammar school,
school of commerce and folk high school. Furthermore, the
town has several fair-sized companies such as Great Greenland
with tannery and sewing facilities for creating beautiful
sealskin clothes. Around the town, the visitor will meet sculptures
being a part of the famous project "Stone & Man",
where different sculptors have made the town a big sculpture
park. Greenland's oldest fountain is situated at the town
square next to the harbour. Here you can sit and watch the
hunters and fishermen arriving with today's catch for the
market. From Qaqortoq you can visit the famous Hvalsey
Church ruin on an additional tour. We recommend to book
the tour in advance.
Boat transfer from Qaqortoq to Itilleq. From here you walk
the 4 km at the "Kings Road" (named after the Danish
King Frederik 9th's visit in 1952) to Igaliku. Igaliku is
one of the most beautiful villages in Greenland! The colourful
houses are situated in a green bay with luscious grassland.
On the other side of the fjord towers the landmark Illerfissalik
(Burfjeld) in a rough and desolate landscape.
Accommodation at Igaliku Country Hotel for two nights.
Igaliku was the Episcopal seat (named Gardar) during the Norse
period, and the ruins from that time are very impressive.
In 1782 Anders Olsen and his Greenlandic wife Tuperna established
themselves as farmers and that was the beginning of Igaliku's
newer history. There is a small museum in the church, which
is worth visiting. Today the village thrives from sheep farming.
An optional day hike (15-20 km) goes to the Plateau, from
where there is a superb view of the Qooroq Ice fjord, the
stranded ice bergs on the moraine and the enormous glacier
at the head of the fjord. It is the perfect place for picnic!
On the way back, you can be lucky to find minerals and stones,
for instance the shining "moon stone" (Labradorit).
Boat transfer from Itilleq to Qassiarsuk also known as Brattahlid,
the place where Erik the Red settled in 982. The museum can
be visited on your own (entrance is included). Late afternoon
boat transfer to Narsarsuaq.
Accommodation Hotel Narsarsuaq for one night.
Check out from the room. Luggage can be left at the hotel.
Boat trip to the Qooroq Ice Fjord. A boat trip among icebergs
of all colours, sizes and shapes. When the glacier is in view,
the boat engine is stopped, so you can enjoy the absolute
silence and a drink chilled with glacier ice - more than 1000
Departure to Reykjavik or Copenhagen (check in one hour before).
