Saqqaq is a village on the Nuussuaq Peninsula in the Quaasuitsup municipality of western Greenland, 380km north of the Arctic Circle (April 2017). The village of fewer than 200 is reached by sea only during summer and autumn. The village name means “the sunny side”, as it faces south. The closest large town is Ilulissat, 93km to the south. Set in Disko Bay, its sources of income are tourism and fishing. For Greenland halibut. Hike the area, mindful of the bogs and rocky ground. Hiking routes lead to Inuit graves and old peat houses.

Archaeological excavations in Qilakitsoq on the other side of the peninsula, on the shores of Uummannaq Fjord, revealed the existence of the ancient Saqqaq culture, the earliest in Greenland, which inhabited the area of west-central Greenland between 2500 BCE and 800 BCE. Indications of the continuous occupation of Saqqaq area are easily observed along the coast, either on foot or by boat. In bays and coves are remnants from prehistoric and historic days, such as tent rings, house ruins and hopping stones placed in a row.

There’s also a prehistoric caribou fence that was found 20 km to the east of Saqqaq. Saqqaq peoples were physically adapted to extremely cold climates. They lived in small tents and hunted seals, seabirds, and other marine animals. Visitors’ activities include dogsledding, kayaking and fishing. Pause to take in the atmosphere of the relatively few colourful buildings, seascape littered with icebergs, ski dogs basking in the sun, and signs of fishing apparatus everywhere. Here you are on the edge of huge island near the top of the world covered in 2 to 3km of ice. That’s impressive.
