Aappilattoq is a village in the Kujalleq municipality at the southern tip of Greenland. The name means "red" (the colour red), after the red mountains rising above the settlement. Its population of 130 or so (and decreasing) lives in a small settlement spread over a 400 m square slab of rock that rises just a few metres above the water of Prince Christian Sound. Towering on all sides are snow-covered peaks rising dramatically to 1800 m. As your scenic cruise advances slowly through the 100 km Sound, passing occasional growlers (small icebergs), glaciers to the waters edge, and bends, this small village appears out of nowhere and in the middle of nowhere.

Your ship is bound to pause in the narrow 1.7 km bend in the sound, and be sure that villagers will come out with their small outboard motor boats to wave a welcome (no exchanges are possible of course). Their main sources of income are hunting and fishing. The settlement is inaccessible by land, but has a heliport operated by Air Greenland, and the sound is protected by naval vessels. There’s a school, church, general store, and fire station among the 70 or so buildings. Large cruise ships dwarf the village. Aappilattoq is the only settlement in the Sound.

The isolation of this tiny and neat settlement leaves a lasting impression. The scenic day cruise that passes Aappilattoq must be one of the finest offered by cruise ships. On passing the village and heading west then south, the ship leaves Prince Christian Sound and enters Torsukattak Fjord, to enter the Labrador Sea. The nearest town is Nanortalik, about 110 km from Aappilattoq.
