Uunartoq Hot Springs | Qaqortoq | South Greenland

Sailing with Qaqortoq Water Taxi is a nice and easy way to get to some of the top attractions close to the city. You book the trip and Water Taxi will pick you up on one of two spots on the harbor - just like a Yellow Cab.

Wellness is a large concept, but in South Greenland you will find an oasis, balming for the soul.

With its all year around 38 °Celsius water temperature, lies Uunartoq on a remote island.

The adventure starts in Qaqortoq harbour, and takes you through an unimaginable vegetated land, among icebergs in all sizes and arctic wild life. The journey to the hot springs, is worth the trips itself.

2 ½ hour into the trip, you will be able to see the island from a distance.

Go ashore, and walk through the wilderness and explore Uunartoq island. The island is uninhabited, but was discovered by the Vikings. It is said that the island is haunted, and therefore did the Inuit’s not settle on the warm grounds. When arriving at the hot springs change to bathing suits and enjoy the breath taking view, while relaxing in the hot waters. The view overlooks traveling icebergs following the stream, whales playing hide and seek between the waves, and in the backdrop sky high mountains.

Remember to add a lunch or a sandwich when booking.

Put on your bathing suit and bring a towel, for this soul balming adventure to Uunartoq Island! Check the booking availability by pressing ''Choose a date'' above.
