Destination South Greenland is a land of jagged mountains and green pastures where sheep farms directly border ice fjords, and Norse settlement history intersects with modern Greenlandic fishing and hunting communities. Fresh vegetables, natural hot springs on a remote island, big wall climbing, and fjord kayaking abound in South Greenland.
Dirt roads and hiking trails between farming communities, and a great band of sea ice flowing straight down from the northern seas are all unique South Greenlandic elements.
All this is tied together by a distinct South Greenlandic culture with strong ties to the history of the North Atlantic and a sense of sharing stories and welcoming guests.
The southernmost part of Greenland lives up to its name, Greenland. The “garden of Greenland” offers a contrasting and fertile climate, unique history, cities with exciting cultural offerings and cozy settlements.
