The fire, frost and water symbolized by the red, white and blue of Iceland’s flag are manifested in this land. Reykjavik, or Smoky Bay, was so named in 874 A.D. by Ingolf Arnarson when he sighted the numerous hot springs on the Seltjarnarnes Peninsula. Today this remarkably pollution-free city is wrapped around a sweeping bay and has managed to retain its charming Old-World atmosphere. A pastiche of red-blue-and green-roofed houses together with the tall gray tower of Hallgrim’s Church dominate the skyline. In Old Town, many of the wooden buildings have been lovingly restored and stand side by side with modern timber and concrete structures. There are fine museums and art galleries; historic pubs present activity in late afternoon. The beautiful countryside outside of Reykjavik includes such natural wonders as volcanoes, geysers, glaciers, mountains and spectacular waterfalls.

Tasiilaq

8/9/2021


Long hours of daylight during the summer time and a beautiful view of the Northern Lights during the winter make Tasiilaq one of the most visited tourist destinations in Greenland.  This picturesque town is located on a nearly circular fjord, surrounded by high mountains dotted with colorful wooden houses.  During the summer months, the Valley of Flowers, blossoms with a unique array of arctic flora.  This destination is truly on the edge of civilization!

Prince Christian Sound
8/11/2021
8/11/2021

This narrow 70-mile-long channel across the southernmost tip of Greenland is breathtakingly dramatic. Huge glaciers tumble down towards the rugged coast from the Greenland ice cap-exactly the kind of scene that inspired one Greenlandic poet to declare: 'I get dizzy of all this beauty'. A thousand years ago, just north of here at Narsarsuaq, Eric the Red established his farm amid 6,000-foot mountains and glaciers.

Qaqortoq
8/12/2021
8/12/2021

Qaqortoq means "The White Place", and the town is the educational and cultural center of Southern Greenland. The sheep farms give this part of Greenland special character. Qaqortoq has a sculpture park "Stone and Man" made by 18 Nordic sculptors. The result is 24 sculptures and reliefs spread all over town. Greenland's only public fountain is in the town square. The square is the historical part of town, with many buildings from colonial times and a museum concentrating on Greenlandic culture, the Norse period and the history of Qaqortoq. Close to the square is "Brædtet" market where local fishermen and hunters sell the days catch. There are 2 churches in town; "Frelserens" from 1832 and "Gertrud Raschs" from 1973. "Frelserens" hans the lifebuoy and memorial tablet with the names of those missing from M/S Hans Hedtoft, which went down in January 1959. "Gertrud Raschs" has one of Greenlands most beautiful altar pieces made by artist Maria Haagen-Müller.

Nuuk
8/13/2021
8/13/2021

Nuuk was founded by the unfailingly optimistic Hans Egede - the Danish missionary with soul-conversions on his mind - who promptly named the settlement Good Hope. Today Nuuk is small by modern standards, with a total population of only 14,000. Despite a wealth of land and a paucity of people, Nuuk has insisted on housing the population in immense apartment blocks with imaginative names like Blok P - a kind of Gulag on ice - and the urban sprawl is now spreading out along the road to the airport. Kolonihavnen is a pleasant exception to the rest of Nuuk's Lego-city look: it's a picturesque 18th-century fishing village in the heart of Nuuk and gives some idea of what the town looked like before the industrial harbour was built. Nuuk's real attraction lies in its proximity to any number of excellent day hikes into the hinterland and the fabulous views from the tops of the nearby mountains. Organised tours, boat trips and the rental of equipment is easier from the capital.

Sisimuit

8/14/2021

Sisimuit is a growing town located in western Greenland. It is one of the main village destinations in Greenland, and an administrative center for the Qeqqata Municipality. The population of Sisimiut was recorded of 5,598 inhabitants living in the town in 2013. One of the main attractions is the multicolor Northern Lights of the Aurora Borelis that take place during the months of September to April. Aside from this amazing phenomenon, many visitors come to Sisimuit to enjoy activities such as fishing, hiking, and dog sledding. 

Ilulisat
8/15/2021
8/15/2021

Ilulissat means icebergs in Greenlandic, and the town has a beautiful location at the mouth of an ice fjord that is filled with enormous icebergs, and is the most productive glacier in the northern hemisphere. North of Ilulissat lies the settlement of Oqaatsut/Rodebay, where some of the old buildings from colonial times are today restaurants or huts available for rent. Ilulissat is a modern town but is also know as the dogsled town for all its sleds and snow dogs, and visitors can share in the sledding fun.

Uummannaq
8/16/2021
8/16/2021

Uummannaq Island is located 590 kilometers north of the Arctic Circle in northwestern Greenland. Uummannaq has been host to unique events such as the Ice Golf Championship, Greenland Shark Challenge and the National Championship in Kayaking. Attractions of Uummannaq include archaeological and historical sites such as the Qilakitsoq mummies - an ancient Eskimo burial site where 500 year old mummies were discovered or settlements of the hunter/trapper culture. Also of interest are dog sled trips, whales, bird cliffs, glaciers, a museum and, of course, May to July this is the land of the midnight sun.

Qeqertarsuaq

8/17/2021

Quaintly scattered with homes in shades of blue, green and red,  Qeqertarsuaq is a small town on the island of Disko, characterized by snowy basalt mountains and the glaciers throughout. Despite the frigid temperatures, there is a wide variety of wildlife here, as a significant portion of Greenland's botanical species are found here. Just beyond town in the silvery grey sea, you'll see whales moving amongst the ice during the summers. Trek up the precipitous Lyngmark Glacier to experience unmatched views, where you can hop on a dogsled and glide across the glacial platform of ice under the midnight sun. Hiking is also popular along the slopes of the mountain behind town.
