Come along on this beautiful hike on Qeqertarsuaq, the Disko Island. Kuannit is the Greenlandic word for the plant "angelica" and this hike goes to an area outside the village where the local people usually go to gather angelica, which either is eathen as snack or used in traditional Greenlandic food. The hike goes through a stunning landscape, where you have great opportunities for spotting whales in the Disko Bay.

Apart from the chances of spotting whales, you will be sure to see how all the beautiful Greenlandic summer flowers colour the path and stand in a beautiful contrast to the basalt landscape.

Geologically the Disko Island is unique and very different from mainland Greenland, as the island is much younger than the rest of the country. A big part of the island consist of tall, steep mountains and in the middle of the island there you find the Lyngmark glacier. In Greenlandic Qeqertarsuaq means "the big island".

Even though the island itself, geologically is younger than the mainland, the village of Qeqertarsuaq is one of the oldest settlements in Greenland, dating back to 1773. Today there are around 1000 inhabitants.

Come along and enjoy the beautiful landscape and how you almost become one with the nature in this place far away from the busy everyday life.
