Cruises from Nanortalik
Nanortalik is Greenland's southernmost town and is located in a scenic area with some of Greenland's most picturesque fjords, small woodlands and steep mountainsides. The town's name means ‘place of polar bears’, which refers to the polar bears that occasionally pass through the town in summer, together with the pack ice from the Arctic Ocean. It is a small town where everyone knows everyone else, and visitors appreciate meeting a friendly population of hunters who live in beautiful natural surroundings. A walk along the main street takes you past Nanortalik's tourist office, which is one of the most attractive tourist offices in South Greenland and features many souvenirs, books and handicrafts made by local artists.
