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).
