Description

Join this all-encompassing city walk of Uummanaq! You will be guided around the hilly streets of Uummannaq, going by the museum, which contains artefacts from the famously discovered Qilakitsoq mummies as well as lots of other historically significant objects. Thereafter you will go to the church, and check out the well preserved, traditionally built, huts made from rock and turf. These type of homes were common up until the ’50s and some were even in use until the ’80s.

During the walk, your guide will tell stories about how the Inuit used to live as well as life in Uummanaq today.

We will walk amongst the iconic colourful houses, and eventually end up at the highest point in the city, that offers a great overview of the fiord and the tall peaks of the Nuussuaq Peninsula mountains.

We recommend that you secure all of your experiences by booking them well in advance of your trip.
