Choose to take in some of Greenland’s most spectacular Arctic landscapes on an accompanied hike at the Great Lake; or perhaps experience Kaffe-Mik and enjoy traditional coffee, tea and cake with the town’s friendly locals. From Narsarsuaq you can join a boat tour to the Qooroq Ice Fjord and marvel at the beautiful blue icebergs, which break away from the magnificent Qooroq Glacier. Alternatively, venture up Signal Hill and enjoy stunning views of the Tunugdlliarfik Fjord. Then in Nanortalik – Greenland’s most southerly town – you’ll discover steep mountains, gorgeous fjords and pretty woodlands. A visit to the Open Air Museum, which showcases traditional clothing, kayaks and much more, is a must to learn about the local way of life. Finally, delight in the majestic scenery of the Tasermiut Fjord as you depart Greenland before sailing back to Liverpool, stopping off in Northern Ireland for a day in Belfast en route.
