Plentiful and diverse

Qeqertarsuaq is a small, quiet and traditional but on the same time a very colorful town. The landscape is different from the rest of the Disko Bay area, because the Disco island is of volcanic origin, which makes this island very unique and like nothing you have ever seen. The landscape is characterized by Basalt Mountains, covered by glaciers, deep valleys and hot Springs, which make the basis for a rich flora. The most important industry in Qeqertarsuaq is fishing and hunting. Amongst others hunting for whales was once a fundamental source of income. The population is no more than 1100 and 70 lives in a small settlement Kangerluk, so you can probably imagine the close knit and local atmosphere that will greet you here.

As the only place in Greenland Qeqertarsuaq offer dogsledding in the summer on the Lungmarks glacier. If all of this has caught your attention, I think you should visit this website and read more about the Disco Island and Disco Bay area. Only your imagination sets limits to what you can do here and the amount of activities and sight are many. A lot of people are actually surprised with how much many and diverse activities and sights Greenland and especially this area has to offer.
