If choosing to visit the settlement Kapisillit, you are in for a cultural experience.
Unlike cities, another pace is found in the small settlements scattered along the coast. Kapisillit is an insight to the true Greenlandic life, outside of the capital. The settlement was established by two brothers, who discovered the rich seas. Since the town has endured prosperity and adversity, as the fish come and go as they please. Visit the old drying racks, the church and stop at the only store in town. Our hike can take you to the only salmon spawning river in all of Greenland, the surrounding arctic tundra, where wild life breeds or the majestic mountain in the backdrop of Kapisillit. This is a place where the forces of nature dominates and decides, it is a true insight to the Greenlandic lives, hidden deep within the veins of Nuuk fjord system!
