  • Kayaking down the coast

    Nanortalik Off The Beaten Path

    sea kayaks can be hired in Nanortalik and you can explore fantastic areas. Contact Nanortalik tourism (Niels) for all the gear you need. Niels is very helpful and can organise maps etc. We brought our own cooking gear. Petrol stoves are best as aquiring gas can be a problem. Niels also runs the local hostel which is excellent.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Greenland does not have a road network like other countries. Communties only really exist on or near the coast, so air or water are the main forms of transport. Motor vehicles in Narsarsuaq are a mixture of 4x4s, quad-bikes, bicycles and hotel minibuses.

    The town's only full-sized bus was used as a shuttle-bus for our cruise-ship: it is a DAB (Dansk Automobil Byggeri)-bodied Leyland and a rather splendid 'bus it is.
