Nuuk offers a variety of different activities for you to explore. Enjoy time in the city center with all the comforts of urban life such as gourmet restaurants, fashion- and designer shops, cultural museums and Greenlandic artistry in galleries, theaters and Greenland’s Culture House.

And head out into the wild, when you are ready for it. With easy-access to the backcountry you have the unique opportunity to experience the amazing arctic landscape with water activities, skiing and hiking only minutes away from the city.

Catch a boat from the old city harbor and leave the buzzing and friendly city behind you. Prepare for the second-largest fjord system in the world with an abundance of sea life.
