Highlights of Southern Greenland

There is plenty to discover and do in South Greenland – those that enjoy their activities can head out on some magnificent hikes such as walking to the Kiattut Glacier or Munkebugt valley in Qaqortoq.

Those less keen on the active side of things might want to discover the fascinating Viking history that includes seeing the remains of Hvalsey church, once a Norse church, or how about the Qajaq Brewery in Narsaq.

From a photographer’s perspective, you will be blessed with blue skies or dark moody clouds making it hard for you to put your camera down, or maybe you just want to feel like you are somewhere far far away from home and let yourself just be immersed in your surroundings.

Getting there

South Greenland’s main airport is Narsarsuaq and flights operate here from either Copenhagen or Reykjavik which makes a visit perfect as twin centre with the cities before flying over.

When you arrive the main mode of transport between location is boat which allows for you to get to witness the icebergs and all the incredible scenery from the water.

It is always essential to make sure you have a couple of nights safety net on each side of your visit just in case the elements prevent you from landing there.

Climate

We suggest trips here during the summer where the weather can truly be a mix and, much like Iceland, you need to really prepared for anything. Waterproofs and jumpers will certainly come in use but don’t forget to bring some suncream and sunglasses.

Spending time on the boats out there means that the sun can reflect off both the sea AND the ice!

Geography

Where 80% of Greenland is known to be covered with its ice sheets the southern part is where most of the greenery is. Here there are many farms with both sheep and fresh produce being cultivated. It makes its location a stunning mix of mountains, hills, and fjords with icebergs floating amongst them.
