Cruises from Aapilattoq
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.
