Welcome to Nuuk The capital of Greenland - is a facinating city filled with contrasts, and packed with culture and experiences. Here we live in mutual respect with one another and nature, where modern Greenlandic society meets old traditions. The nature that surrounds Nuuk, is characterized by the sun spreading life and nourishment during summer, and the green northern lights dancing across our Arctic sky, giving us renewed energy during the dark winter evenings.

A bit about Nuuk Nuuk means ”the headland” in Greenlandic and hence the name. The city lies at the edge of a large peninsula at the mouth of the vast fjord system ”Nuup Kangerlua”. Nuuk is also the oldest established city in Greenland. It was founded in 1728 by the missionary Hans Egede after he left his first settlement at the ”Island of Hope”. Hans Egede’s house still stands to this day, at the very same spot where he built it, in the idyllic area near the old town in the colonial harbor. The house is now used by the Greenland Government to host special events and honored guests. 4


Transportation In Nuuk you’ll find a well-connected road network with bus connections to all districts - with three regular bus services from early morning to late evening. With several companies in the city, there are also good opportunities to catch a taxi. If you prefer to use two wheels or legs, there are3 good cycling and walking paths. There are even marked trails for snow-mobiles. In Nuuk’s scenic backcountry there are several marked hiking trails for those who want to escape the city for a few hours. At sea, there is the opportunity to use one of many boatcharters, as well as the coastal ship Arctic Umiaq Line. The latter ports at Nuuk two times a week, and it takes passengers to either North or South Greenland.Finally, there are daily departures/arrivals through the airport in Nuuk, operated by Air Greenland and Air Iceland. There are flights to/from other cities in Greenland, as well as direct connections to/from Iceland. There is fast connection from Copenhagen every day during the summer season.

Hiking around Quassussuaq This hike around the beautiful mountain of Quasussuaq lets you experience pristine, quiet wilderness without venturing too far from the Capital. It takes guests over rugged terrain, across a granite rock face that’s almost 4 billion years old. It passes brooks and streams cascading with fresh, clean, drinkable water, and takes in spectacular views of the surrounding mountains and the fjord. Good walking shoes or boots are a must, as is a light wind-breaker jacket and mosquito repellent. A small light rucksack is recommended for your belongings – and remember to bring a water bottle so you can sample fresh, cold water from a mountain stream. The tour is physically demanding, but deeply rewarding for the fit traveller.

Gold&Fish Gold & Fish is a day excursion where we sail into the fjord to an indescribably beautiful place near the ice fjord, which also has lots of beautiful icebergs. After half an hour of sailing we arrive at ABC’s gold mine where half of the participants will come ashore and be equipped with a pickaxe, shovel and washing pan and of course guidance in the noble art of panning for gold - and mind you, it is genuine native gold. Obviously, we can not guarantee the discovery of gold, but there is really good chance to find gold. The other half of the participants will stay on board the boat and continue to a fishing spot nearby. Here we will haul gold from the sea in the form of beautiful big redfish. At midday we will have lunch and the teams swap so everyone gets the opportunity to try both gold panning and harvesting the (red) fruits of the sea. Level of difficulty: 1

Boat tour to ”Nuup Narsaa” One of the best ways to take in the stunning scenery of Greenland is to view it at your leisure by boat and this is exactly what you will do on this tour. Unlike most of our other tours, this trip is not in the Nuuk Fiord but is south of Nuuk. Your adventure begins with an hour-long boat journey, during which you will travel through a truly breathtaking archipelago towards the abandoned settlement of Nuup Narsaa or Little Narsaq. This small settlement south of the Nuuk Fiord is an abandoned settlement which lies deserted for most of the year. However, from June to October the settlement comes to life thanks to the exuberance of excited children who travel from Nuuk in order to take part in the settlement’s summer camp. During the tour there is the opportunity to spot fantastic wildlife including birds, seals and whales. In addition to nature’s wildlife marvels, on the return journey from Little Narsaq one will pass Akilia Island which contains some of the world’s oldest rock, dating to over three billion years old.

Adventure Fiord Tour In this tour you can smell the scent of the sea and hear the water lapping against the boat as it rocks gently from side to side. Don’t get too lulled by the sea however, as you need to keep an eye out for the incredibly majestic Greenlandic eagle, the whales and the seals that you may be lucky enough to glimpse on the tour. Enjoy a spectacular voyage around the Nuuk fiord, the second largest fiord system in the world. Humpback whales frolic in these waters from early June to October. These huge, intelligent marine mammals may weigh up to 30 tons but they really are the acrobats of the ocean, and often put on a spectacular show.

Panoramic city tour A two hour tour of Greenland’s capital, past and present. Historic, picturesque neighbourhoods and modern buildings nestle side by side in this almost 300-year-old city, the largest in Greenland. An experienced guide will field questions and offer fascinating insights into Nuuk’s history, architecture and way of life. Highlights include four photo stops with panoramic views of the fiord, visits to the main harbour, the marina, and the old and new campuses of the University of Greenland. The tour also takes you past the shops in the centre of the city, concluding at the Old Colonial Harbour, site of the National Museum of Greenland. The tour provides a good impression of the overall scale of Nuuk, something not immediately apparent from a wander around the Old Harbour and the city centre.

Hunting tour with a local hunter Since the first wave of immigration via Thule around 4000 to 5000 years ago, the Inuits in Greenland have been dependent on nature’s resources in the form of fish, birds, land mammals and marine mammals. Hunting and fishing have therefore always been a question of survival in a country in which the summer is short and the climate unsuitable for effective farming. This tour provides authentic insight into the daily life of a Greenlandic hunter and fisherman (more often than not, they are both). In this tour you will experience the way in which hunters hunt at sea. When going hunting you have to remember that this is a part of daily life in Greenland - not all the meat in Greenland homes comes from supermarkets. The people of Greenland are close to nature and view themselves as a natural part of the food chain. Duration:

Fishing for Arctic char Get ready to set sail as your guide will take you via open boat to different places near Nuuk where Arctic Char are known to frequent. These places make for great fishing. You can fish for Arctic Char that weigh up to five to six kg, all within the most fantastic surroundings. Typically people fish for Arctic char at the mouths of rivers or at the boundary between rivers and lakes. As a rule, char are found where the concentration of food is greatest, the water is deep enough to cover their dorsal fins, and where the water is relatively still. Depending on how far into the fishing season you are, you may have to walk quite a long way upriver to find the best fishing spots. You can get so close to the fish that you may be able to catch them with your bare hands after a short lesson. Although we cannot guarantee the size and amount of your catch, nor how successful your trip will be, you can be sure that the experience will be one to treasure for the rest of your life.

Cooking and Barbecueing on the rocks To stay at the ”Inuk Hostels” is in itself a great cultural experience. Beautifully situated with a view of two of the city’s landmarks: the island with the beautiful high mountain ”Sermitsiaq” which means ’the mountain with a piece of ice’ (glacier) and the enormous fjord complex”Nuup Kangerlua”, home to numerous glaciers. While watching the beautiful view, we will barbecue on stones and cook the food traditionally over a small bonfire with a large thin rock on top. This takes place just outside ”Inuk Hostels”. Special Greenlandic ingredients such as ammassaat (capelin), trout, seal meat and/or reindeer meat will be cut into small pieces and cooked. One will learn about the importance of Greenlandic ingredients and plants in cooking. Knowledge passed down from the old days. Duration:

Atammik - 3 days settlement adventure If this is the kind of genuine connection and understanding you are seeking, the Atammik tour offers first-hand experience over 3 days of daily life in a small Greenlandic settlement. During your stay you will discover a way of life that is probably vastly different from your own. The memories and experiences you will have by the end of the trip will be something to treasure when you are back home. Boat tour: The settlement is located around 100 km north of Nuuk. During the boat trip which lasts 2.5 hours you will travel through a mix of narrow straits and open ocean. Along the way you might encounter anything from whales frolicking in the water to eagles and foxes in search of food along the coast line. The settlement: Atammik is a typical Greenlandic settlement and one that only sees a few tourists every year. The 250 inhabitants make a living by hunting and fishing. They don’t get a lot of guests so be prepared to be the center of attention! The house: The community has dedicated one of the typical small houses to providing accommodation for the rare guest. It has beds for 4 1/2 people but additional sleeping space is available on the floor in the living room. The house also has a kitchen so you can prepare meals whenever you want - but if you are the type looking for luxury this is not the right spot. The stay: There is a small shop in which you can buy everything from a loaf of bread to a hunting rifle. However, this trip is about being disconnected from the world at large. Find a sunny spot out of the wind where you can read a good book and enjoy one of the last places on Earth where the minutes extend leisurely after one another without the frenzy of city living and there’s plenty of time to do nothing at all except relax. An important note! The price of the tour covers the transport and the accommodation. Food is not included. You can bring your own food to cook or you can buy it in the settlement’s small shop.

Storytelling Greenlanders, like other Inuit kinsmen, have always loved to pass on stories from their ancestors. Several stories from ancient times are identical to the stories that our Inuit kin in Siberia, Canada and Alaska still tell their descendants. The stories have nearly always had an educational purpose. The storytelling takes place in nature - outside of Inuk Hostels - and indoors in the cafĂŠ when the weather is bad. The stories are told by a skilled storyteller and listeners will have the opportunity to interact and ask questions. Level of difficulty: 1

Kapisillit via closed and open boat This tour is an experience of a lifetime where you will get to see life in a small settlement outside of Nuuk. You will feel almost as if you are stepping back in time, as the settlement only has one shop where you can buy all sorts of things, ranging from baby diapers to cinnamon to guns! The pace of life in Kapisillit is slow, giving you a great chance to take a break from your daily life and to unwind and relax. The transport to Kapisillit is a combination of closed boat and open boat. The boat tour takes about three hours depending on the weather. In this tour you are on your own in the settlement for three to four days. However don’t worry about being stranded with nowhere to sleep! We can help you arrange accommodation in a B&B or a small house. The village is a hunting and fishing community that dwells deep in the beautiful Nuuk Fjord, about 75 km from Nuuk. The name Kapisillit directly translated means “salmon” and it alludes to the fact that a river near the settlement is Greenland’s only spawning ground for salmon. The area is perfect for fishing and hiking. If you’re keen to hike, the most popular trek is undoubtedly the route that leads to the edge of the Kangersuneq fjord.

The National Theatre of Greenland The National Theatre of Greenland produces theater for the whole country through tours, television broadcasting and radio. The National Theatre of Greenland is rooted in the Greenlandic Inuit cultural expression, but is open to Greenlandic minorities, the artistic diversity of the Arctic and also neighboring indigenous people’s culture. The National Theatre of Greenland’s repertoire is diverse both in subject choice and expression. The theater is not afraid to work with circus performers, ballet dancers, rappers or American drum dancers among others. The Inuit cultural treasure we share with our brothers and sisters in Canada, Alaska and Siberia is a solid foundation for both traditional and experimental performances. The National Theatre of Greenland was established on January 1st, 2011 together with an acting school with a 2 year course based on western theater technique, Inuit language and culture. The course is taught in Greenlandic and English. The theater has a consultant providing dramaturgical help for amateur theaters along the coast.

The National Theatre of Greenland is touring throughout the country and is based at Industrivej in Nuuk. Visit our website or find us on Facebook to learn more about us and our current performances. For more info: •

Hiking in the backcountry of Nuuk There are exciting hikes of all difficulty levels right in Nuuk’s backyard. The map on the next page shows the four official hiking routes of the Nuuk back-country, two of which have signs marking the start of the trail. Each route is marked by a different colour: green, yellow, pink and orange. It is advisable that when in the Greenlandic nature it is best to be prepared due to rapid weather changes. Always remember to follow the advice that is given on the map. We wish you a good hike!
