Kangeq is an abandoned settlement located about 18km from Nuuk in the Nuuk Fjord. Archaeological middens show that the area has been occupied for several thousand years, so its current emptiness (a function of the G60 resettlement program in Greenland) makes for a slightly eerie experience.
There are several tours that depart from Nuuk to Kangeq to allow you to explore this silent piece of Greenlandic history. Also remember to keep an eye out for icebergs, whales, seals, and other wildlife as you make the 45-minute journey along the Nuuk Fjord.
