Rolling valleys lush with flowers and tall grass guard the entrance to the well-preserved remains of Garðar – the religious heart of the Norsemen in Greenland. Now part of Igaliku, visitors can explore Norse history, hike within the UNESCO World Heritage-listed surroundings to discover lakes, mountains and hidden Norse ruins, or relax and watch the ubiquitous sheep crop the carefully tended grass of what was Greenland’s first sheep farming settlement. Enjoy a slower pace of life in an idyllic setting that has one main rule – keep off the farmers’ grass fields!
In Igaliku, people walk everywhere. This small settlement has no public transportation, though luggage or full transfers from the helistop/Itilleq harbour can be arranged. Otherwise, it is a beautiful hike along the “King’s Road” to arrive at the settlement.
For excursions in the area, the most common way to get around is with a boat (all year) or on foot (summer), and with a snowmobile, skis, or snowshoes (winter).
