Nuuk, Greenland Cruises

The city of Nuuk is the capital and governmental centre of Greenland, situated in the south western region of the country, opposite to Canada's Atlantic Coast. With a small population of around 15,000 people, the city is the least populated capital in the world. Its remote and secluded ambience creates a unique and peaceful charm, often associated with the vast nation of Greenland, which is best known for its huge icy landscapes and arctic wildlife, including polar bears, arctic foxes and narwhals. The city's surrounding regions boast a spectacular natural landscape, comprising of dramatic snow-covered mountains and large open green spaces filled with verdant woodland. The city itself has an enchanting and isolated character and is easy to navigate on foot, generating an ideal picturesque location to escape from the hassles of modern life.

Sightseeing in Nuuk

The vast majority of people who travel to Nuuk come for the incredibly beautiful natural landscape and the wide range of outdoor activities on offer. Hiking excursions are very popular with visitors especially on the region's two main mountains and natural landmarks, the Sermitsiaq and Lille Malene. Several other fantastic hiking trails begin in the city of Nuuk, including a gentle hike from Circuslake and a more arduous trek up Big Malene's mountainside. The city also has a number of cross-country ski-runs, which are clearly marked and are set over several miles. Sailing and Greenlandic cruises from Nuuk are also popular with tourists, offering the opportunity to see a variety of arctic aquatic fauna. Perhap the best way to truly appreciate Nuuk and its surrounding is on a guided tour. Guided tours from expert locals are a great way to learn more about the region's rich culture and heritage as well as the fascinating local ecosystem and wildilife.
