  • Must visit walking around the old city of Nuuk, one of the most colorful towns in the world. Once visiting the Hans Egede House, visit the old church, the look out point, national museum and harbour.  more »
  • I love to eat. I had reindeer, salmon, myskoxe, seal. Ate at the hotel instead of going out and looking for a place. Then you are "home", when you are done with dinner. Breakfast included.  more »
