Home to the largest population of white-tailed eagles (Nattoralik) in Greenland, Paamiut is a well-kept secret in the Capital Region. Much like the eagles that soar uninhibited around the nearby mountains, this little-visited destination offers outdoor adventurers in the ultimate freedom. The colourful, historic houses that tell stories of whaling and fur trading quickly give way to a backcountry crisscrossed with ancient trails still waiting to be discovered by modern travellers.
Paamiut locals are incredibly welcoming and can spot a traveller the instant they arrive. They are justifiably proud of their town and keen to share its treasures with visitors. So embrace them wholeheartedly for an authentic experience in a small Greenlandic town.
