Narsarsuaq
7/17/2021
7/17/2021

Since Narsarsuaq means 'great plain', it stands to reason South Greenland's international airport is here. The ice cap is about three to four hours away on foot - and a beautiful hike away through lush 'Flower Valley'. The ice can also be experienced by sailing to Qooroq Fjord where boats sail close to the glacier, which occasionally sends gigantic icebergs into the water. Narsarsuaq offers a beautiful view of Qassiarsuk sheep farms. To this day ruins from the Norse era are clearly visible, as are elegant reconstructions of Erik's farmstead and Thjodhildur's Church. Many stay at them during hiking trips, horseback rides and angling trips in the area. Itilleq is one hour by boat from Narsarsuaq to the south-east. From here it is a short walk to the settlement of Igaliku. The Norse named the locality Gardar, and an Episcopal residence was founded here in 1126. The ruins of the cathedral and bishop's place have been renovated in recent years, and today constitute a beautiful memorial to Greenland's Norse Era.

Land Tour: Reykjavik
Suggested Private Excursion

The fire, frost and water symbolized by the red, white and blue of Iceland’s flag are manifested in this land. Reykjavik, or Smoky Bay, was so named in 874 A.D. by Ingolf Arnarson when he sighted the numerous hot springs on the Seltjarnarnes Peninsula. Today this remarkably pollution-free city is wrapped around a sweeping bay and has managed to retain its charming Old-World atmosphere. A pastiche of red-blue-and green-roofed houses together with the tall gray tower of Hallgrim’s Church dominate the skyline. In Old Town, many of the wooden buildings have been lovingly restored and stand side by side with modern timber and concrete structures. There are fine museums and art galleries; historic pubs present activity in late afternoon. The beautiful countryside outside of Reykjavik includes such natural wonders as volcanoes, geysers, glaciers, mountains and spectacular waterfalls.
