Nuuk, capital city of Greenland


Nuuk is the most cosmopolitan town in Greenland, backed by a spectacular panorama of mountains. The capital commands an incredible fjord system and is both quaint and picturesque. Rich with history, natural beauty and wildlife, discovering Nuuk is a positively breathtaking experience.

The city is home to a plethora of museums, and one of the best is the Greenland National Museum. There, galleries nearly overflow with costumes, kayaks, amulets and even mummies that together give visitors a good introduction to the country's history and culture.

The Nuuk Museum of Art is also worth a visit for its thoughtful exhibits featuring over 300 photographs and paintings and over 400 figurines carved from soapstone, local woods and teeth. The museum also sponsors a functioning workshop where visitors can watch masters create interesting pieces and even take a class on traditional artistic methods.

Nuuk fjord

Nuuk's impressive fjord system is the world's second largest, and it is an ideal place for a whale safari. Fin, humpback and minke whales play in the cool waters, and the majestic creatures are a guaranteed sight from May through November. If you are lucky, you may even spot killer and blue whales, but those species tend to be more rare treats. Watching the whales come to the surface for air is an astounding sight you will never forget.

Navigating Greenland

Navigating the archipelago at Nuuk is another special experience. Many tour operators set sail off the coast each day, and boat trips are one of the best ways to discover the dramatic encounter between the countryside and the coast. Behold the amazing sight of the fjords, mountains, town and sea, and be on the lookout for seals!

In the summer, hiking is a favorite pastime of Nuuk locals. In just a few hours, you can explore the capital's landmark of Sermitsiaq and explore Lille Malene. You can even walk in the footsteps of the Norsemen as you pass Norse ruins in Sandnaes.

Skiers will find much to enjoy in Nuuk. The capital is home to several long cross-country ski runs, and a 1,100-meter alpine ski lift is located in the town's south-eastern section.

The city's impressive inlet system is ideal for kayaking, and many locals maintain the tradition of making their own kayaks. The old colonial port has many examples on display, and visitors can rent both traditional and modern kayaks there.

Anglers will also feel right at home in Nuuk. Cod and redfish are popular catches, and the best fishing is between the islands, where fast-moving currents bring in large loads. The glaciers are another favorite spot, and the mouths of the fjords are known for their thriving fish populations.

The fjord complexes near the capital are riddled with remnants of the Norse settlers. During your exploration, you will uncover the ruins of storehouses, farms and stables made of granite and sandstone, some of which date back over 1,000 years.

Northern lights Greenland

If you move a bit further from the city lights, you can experience one of the world's greatest treats: the Northern Lights. The dance of the lights is an all-natural, unparalleled light show that you will never forget.
