Angling, whale watching and heliskiing are the trademarks of Maniitsoq.
THE VENICE OF GREENLAND
In Greenland we love to compare our small towns with world famous metropolises, and since Maniitsoq is situated in an archipelago, intersected by small natural canals, the town has obviously been dubbed the “Venice of Greenland” by the locals. Anything less clearly would not be enough.
But where Venice falls just a bit short is where Maniitsoq shines. Active adventures open the gates to a backcountry with heliskiing, angling for Arctic charr, pods of visiting humpback whales, and the contrast between the rugged peaks of the Eternity Fjord and the quiet everyday life in the village of Kangaamiut, only an hour by boat from Maniitsoq.
You might be lead to believe that any kind of fish will do once you are wearing waders and standing in an unspoiled river in a Greenlandic mountain valley. But we understand how anglers are especially picky and that some fish simply are better.
Luckily nature provides in abundance around here, and two rivers just south of Maniitsoq are full of Arctic charr – and what’s more, both rivers offer hut accommodation and guides with deep local knowledge. We would expect nothing less.
