    Thule Off The Beaten Path

    EVERYTHING in this part of Greenland is off the beaten path, but someplace that is definately to be visited if you can get out there are just some of the hills beyond D Launch. There is a beautiful little stream when the weather is warm enough for the snow to melt!There are also quite a few animals out in the summer. Some of the arctic hares are...

  • Tough Tourist Ticket

    Thule Off The Beaten Path

    Unless you're coming on business, getting to Thule is a real chore. A military flight of the USA or an SAS contract flight out of Denmark are the flying options. You might also find passage on an icebreaker through the Arctic Sea or you could find your way from Southern Greenland via land (sturdy sled recommended)

  • Way up north

    Thule Favorites

    Most people don't have a clue where Thule is, so I thought I'd put up a map, courtesy of Encarta.As you can see, there is not a whole lot of the world further north than Thule, which is located on the north west side of Greenland. While it is in the extreme north, it DOES get above freezing there. You have to go a bit further north to reach the...

    Kap Dan Favorites

    I just like to remember the brightly coloured houses, built among the hills. It was almost toy-like and hard to imagine people living in such a remote place.

  • The Old Cemetery

    Kap Dan Things to Do

    Make sure you don't miss the old cemetery. It's very picturesque and perhaps unlike cemeteries elsewhere. The crosses don't actually have names on as the Inuits believe that when the body dies, the name and soul live on. The name is then given to a new-born in the village.

    Above the town is the impressive mountain plateau named -Lyngmarksfjeldet, that towers some 800-900 meters. It is a good stipe hike. The route is marked with blue paint. At the plateau there is a glassier and if you are planing ahead you can arrange for a dog sledge tour.

    Do bring food and drink as the tour might take longer then you think.

    Start off On top of the world The mountain hiker ;-) Game ?snow grouse ..two shoots in the neck!

    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.
