Cruises from Maniitsoq
Maniitsoq is one of Greenland’s largest settlements with a population of 2700, lying 128 km south of the Arctic Circle. It is situated of the SE side of the rugged and irregular shaped, Maniitsoq Island, 10km from the mainland. The settlement lies at the mouth of a fjord world to the east, where Alpine peaks rise two kilometres straight out of the sea and there is an abundance of bird colonies, flanked by enormous glaciers. This is home to some of the harshest landscape on the west coast.
The town sees water and natural canals on all sides, hence dubbed “the Venice of Greenland.”
