Kapisillit Settlement Visit | Nuuk
Want to experience Greenlandic culture deep into Nuuk Fjord? Visit the last small settlement near Nuuk that still maintains a more traditional way of life on this full-day trip into the Nuuk Fjord system.
This tour takes you 2.5 hours from Greenland’s capital into the Kapisillit arm of the Nuuk Fjord. The entire route is lined with the spectacular mountains and provides no shortage of photo opportunities as you make your way into the remote backcountry via the same method of transportation that local hunters use.
Deep into the fjord your experience will make a right turn at Uummannaq Island, and enter the Kapisillit fjord. Traveling a bit further in, you will arrive in Kapisillit. Your experienced captain will dock the boat and escort you on land.
The settlement of Kapisillit is located approx. 75 kilometers Northeast of Nuuk, and can only be reached by sea or air. Kapisillit is inhabited all year round and has a population of fewer than 60 people. Visiting the small settlement is a unique insight into what life is like, far from civilization and the hassle of modern life.
This settlement adventure is yours to create. Chat with a local, visit the newly restored church, pay a visit to the only store in town and enjoy the spectacular surroundings of sky-high mountains, untouched arctic tundra, and wildlife.
Before returning to the harbor, we will make a quick stop 43km outside of Nuuk, an area called Qooqqut. A beautiful valley surrounded by mountains, offering unique and beautiful scenery. Qooqqut used to be a sheep farm in old days. Now the valley is used for a restaurant and lovely cabins. And it's also a great place for fishing and spotting reindeer.
