My favorite thing about Nuuk is…

The city is full of life and in constant motion. There’s so much to do here, but I love walking down to Colonial Harbour and strolling around the museums.

I love to eat at…

Tapasimut. I always order fish soup, gyoza, a hotdog and a mojito! Yum!

I buy my arts and crafts…

Directly from the artists in Nuuk.

If you want to try your hand at Greenlandic food…
I buy local food in Brugsen or Pisiffik and cook it at home.

My perfect day off in Nuuk…

I drive out of town with my partner and our son, so we can spend all day in nature. Myson loves it!

My best Nuuk outfit is…

I mostly shop in Nønne in Nuuk Center. They have a style that’s both modern and suits an Arctic lifestyle. Besides that, I almost always wear Poliver rubber boots and an Arcteryx jacket!
