Have an authentic experience in this unspoilt town close to a 150 km fjord where there is ample opportunity to discover Kangaatsiaq’s wildlife.
Kangaatsiaq means “rather small promontory”, and the town is Greenland’s youngest as it first achieved status as a town in 1986, but the settlement itself is of course much older.
Kangaatsiaq is an unspoilt little town, where there are no large hotels or tourist offices – in fact there is only private accommodation available and a single internet cafe. Among the many colourful single-family homes here you can write home to friends and family about an authentic and almost unspoilt town in Greenland.
CLOSE TO THE GREENLANDIC COUNTRYSIDE
East of Kangaatsiaq, a 150 km wide fjord system opens with countless islands, inlets and bays, and there are good opportunities to explore the protected waters by boat, canoe or sea kayak.
Along the way, there is ample opportunity to discover the wildlife, which includes reindeer, fox, and hare, as well as many different species of birds. In the sea around Kangaatsiaq, many species of marine mammals live, such as harp seals, humpback whales and minke whales.
