Urban & Nature lifestyle

Nuuk is the perfect mix of old traditions and modern living, a place where you can go to cafés, sail to the icefjord and be home for tapas on the same day.

As Nuumiuts we love to travel the world and the fjords, but most of us would never miss a hunting season at home. Nature is a big part of our modern urban living, and our tour providers will take you with us, to experience what we love most about Nuuk. Experience everything from kajaking, deep-sea-fishing, arctic settelments, our facinating wild-life and much much more
