For a country with such low population density, Greenland is absolutely enormous. There are so many cities, towns and regions just waiting to be explored. So when planning a trip to Greenland, how do you choose where to go?
If you are looking for rugged coastlines, icebergs for days, whale watching, sled dogs, gorgeous landscapes and friendly locals – then look no further than Oqaatsut.
SAILING TO OQAATSUT
Oqaatsut is a tiny settlement on the west coast of Greenland in the Disko Bay region and is accessible from Ilulissat by boat or kayak in the summer. It is also possible to hike the 21km trail between towns.
ICEBERGS, ICEBERGS, ICEBERGS
The boat ride between towns is just one hour, and the time flies by. Sailing through the Disko Bay means sailing amongst thousands of icebergs. Some white, some blue, some huge and some small, but all are absolutely stunning.
Once docking at the settlement, the exploring can begin! The colourful houses are beautiful, the icebergs are abundant and the whole area is too captivating for words. It is nothing short of a paradise for photographic enthusiasts, landscape lovers and those wanting to get even further off the beaten track.
