South Greenland is an area offering many Arctic experiences, from iceberg-filled fjords to dramatic glaciers,  archaeological remains from the Inuit and Viking settlers, and unique access to the pristine countryside. This tour takes you to Narsarsuaq, meaning ‘great plain’ in Greenlandic. Formerly a US airbase, it is now a small settlement with a huge diversity of experiences from iceberg cruises, to easy hikes in a nearby valley or perhaps a trek to the Inland Ice Cap. The area around Narsarsuaq is also Viking country and there are numerous ancient remains from these early settlers. Then visit Narsaq, on the the shore of Tunulliarfik Fjord, where people have lived for thousands of years, and remains of the old Norse settlements can be found.
