TRAVEL IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF THE VIKING SETTLERS
The traces of the Vikings – also called the Norse – can be found in the innermost and warmest fjord systems in South- and West Greenland. The landscape here continues to be dominated by large ruins of farms, stables, storerooms, etc., made of sandstone and granite blocks. The ruins can be anything up to 1000 years old.
Lots of the same land that the Viking settlers originally cultivated is today occupied by enterprising sheep farmers and other farmers who offer guests overnight accommodation on the banks of deep fjords and or on grassy mountain slopes. Nature-lovers can thus experience authentic settings as they begin to explore the area in the footsteps of the earlier Norse settlers.
"The area is also home to a reconstruction of a Viking longhouse and Tjodhilde's Church."
