Narsaq – Greenland

By Verified Expert

Narsaq is a very cute and beautiful place in South Greenland. It has approximately 1500 inhabitants and the name means “Plain”, referring to the shore where the town is located. 

This place is very green in the summer and the local economy comes from fishing, farming, and tourism.

Narsaq has a beautiful nature, and in a great day there isn’t anything better than pack a bag with snacks and go out sailing to be one with nature. Enjoy the sun, go fishing or shoot a seal to bring home for dinner.
