Kapisillit – Day Tour

A modern boat takes you through the beautiful Nuuk fiord to the small fishing and hunting settlement of Kapisillit which is reached after approx. 2½ hours. The mountains flanking the fjord are some of the oldest in the world and provide precious material for local artists.

Upon arriving at Kapisillit we walk around the settlement and see the iconic church, with a spectacular view of the fiord. There are around 60 inhabitants in Kapisillit. On the way back we walk by the local school and the local store where the locals get their necessary goods.

On the way heading back to Nuuk, we will stop by Qoornoq, an abandoned settlement that today serves as a summer retreat area for locals from Nuuk. Qoornoq was abandoned in the 70s as the fish factory shut down and modern commodities were shut down.
