Uunartoq Island is tucked into the mountainous fjord region at the sub-arctic southern tip of Greenland. This small island lies midway between the administrative settlement of Qaqortoq and Nanortalik, and can be reached only by ship. It is uninhabited, but the attraction is the group of hot springs that are 37 deg.C. year-round. The springs give the island its name, which means “Is Warming.” Imagine bathing in a large warm pool near the sea, backed by the low hills of the island, and surrounded by ice-capped 1000m mountains in the distance.

While the coast is ice-free, the surrounding fjords are speckled with small ice floes. The hot springs in Greenland are not caused by volcanic activity, as is the case on Iceland. It appears that the water is heated by deep layers in the earth's crust rubbing against each other. The definition of a hot spring is that it has the same temperature all year round and is warmer than the location's average temperature.

The hottest spring in Greenland is around 60 deg.C., whilst the hot springs on Uunartoq provide water with a temperature of 37-38 degrees, an absolutely perfect bathtub temperature. Surrounded by mountain peaks and drifting icebergs, you can lie in the warm water and enjoy the almost surrealistically beautiful natural surroundings. It is a great experience for both body and soul. During the summer the island’s sparse green coverage is brightened with yellow flowers.
