Experience one of over 60 tiny villages in Greenland. As there are vast distances between cities all over the largest island in the world, there’re also large variations in dialects, climate, landscape and living conditions - the distance between the southernmost point to the northernmost point is up to about 2,670 km! And if you are in Greenland you have to see differences. Near the capital of Greenland, you’ll sail with cabin boat to the Kapisillit village, through Nuup Kangerlua (The Nuuk Fjord), also known as the world's second largest fjord system. And it's absolutely amazing that by sailing for a short while you’ll go from Nuuk's big-city atmosphere to a cosy village in the middle of nature. You’ll sail to Kapisillit and have lunch after you have gone for a walk in the village. While you’re here you’ll get a better understanding of everyday life in villages, and it doesn’t include taking a bus or go to a café - this is something completely different. In Kapisillit there are about 50 inhabitants and it’s so quiet that you’ll almost be surprised by its serenity. You will also go to see and visit an abandoned village named Qoornoq. Qoornoq hasn’t been inhabited for about 40 years, but it’s not completely abandoned yet, the place is still a popular destination in the summer - many of the houses are preserved and many are newly built. If it is possible to go on land by boat (weather determines the agenda) you can go up and visit their charming church. On the way back to Nuuk you’ll sail near the waterfall that’s falling from the iconic Sermitsiaq mountain, and it’s beautiful! During the sailing trip there’s a chance of seeing whales, seals and seabirds - the captain and the guide will be looking for them.
