    Old Cemetery

    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.

    I think this man was providing a demonstration as part of the tour, but I'm not certain!

    Kayaks are still used regularly in Kulusuk, even though many villagers have more modern luxuries as well.

    If you're visiting with Air Iceland, you'll be able to watch a drum dance. This was fun to see and gives you a small insight in to an aspect of the locals' culture. Apparently, these dances are a way of solving arguments. Instead of fighting, men would sing insulting songs about the enemy. A much better way to solve conflict if you ask me...!

    Fondest memory: 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.
