Add To Plan

Spend some quality time interacting with local residents and learning about daily life and Greenlandic culture on this charming and intimate tour.

Your guide will greet you at the pier and escort you into town to the private home of one of Qaqortoq's residents. Greenlanders celebrate many events with a kaffemik - a tradition of inviting friends and relatives over for coffee, tea and cake. During your visit, you'll participate in this lovely tradition yourself and have a chance to talk to your hosts about their daily lives. You will also be treated to a presentation of the Geenlandic national costume and observe a demonstration of how it is made by a local woman who still utilizes traditional skills that date back centuries. Each costume takes months to complete and the long winter months are the perfect time to work on them.

Following your delightful and authentic Greenlandic experience, you'll walk back to the pier where you tour concludes.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 30-minutes of easy/moderate walking. There is hilly terrain to cover and steps to negotiate at the home. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and those with mobility concerns are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Weather appropriate clothing that should include a windbreaker or light jacket; sunglasses; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended.
