    We took this glacier fjord trip and it did not disappoint . The captain and attendant were attentive, answering all questions, providing background about what we were seeing.

    Great opportunity to learn about the real Greenland and its history and customs. The location is perfect, in the colonial section of the town and on the ocean.

    Some very interesting exhibits and we were pleasantly surprised at the quality and range of the material on show. Well worth a visit.

    This picturesque church was closed due to a local wedding. Getting to see the wedding party in traditional dress was a treat. Be sure to climb the hill in front of the church for spectacular views.

    Outstanding facility for concerts, cultural activities, and dining. I took my friends Nanook here for dinner on 11/2/2023, and the food was excellent and we had a very good time.

    This is a beautiful, small, partially abandoned settlement on a small island in the fjord near Nuuk. No one lives here full-time anymore but many people still use their family homes as a weekend summer getaway place.

    I really enjoyed touring with University of Greenland with the tour guide in October 2019. Very interesting paintings of Inuit life on the walls of the school. Beautiful building as well.

    Not sure why this is listed as an attraction as it’s just a mall. It was nice, though. They have a good variety of stores and the place is much more vibrant than the average US mall.

    Definitely worth a visit if you’re nearby.

    Not sure why this is listed as an attraction. It’s not open to the public and it isn’t even marked with a sign. We found it but it took some effort. Note that most of the TA photos for this attraction have nothing to do with it.

    The listing for this one should be deleted. Don’t waste your time looking for it.

    A great little ski resort with two lifts (both pomas) one is quite short and the other longer. Mostly local kids but a fun place to spend a couple of hours. You can hire skis and snowboards on the mountain and there is also a cafe. No clothing hire.

    Beautiful views over the water! A really unique place to do a few turns.

    The museum is fairly small and has a lot of photos and artifacts. The price was very reasonable ($3 USD) and they have a nice gift shop.

    None of the signage is in English so we didn’t get much out of it. The older photos of Nuuk were about the only thing of interest to us.

    Don’t expect much unless you can read Danish or Greenlandic.
