Explore Tasermiut Fjord, Nanortalik and the mountains of Klosterdal
You arrive at the Tasermiut Fjord, a lush region of wooded valleys, soaring mountains and sweeping fjords where you can spend some time exploring the small town of Nanortalik to gain an insight into life in the Arctic wilds.
Thought to be one of the most picturesque fjords in Greenland, the Tasermuit Fjord offers towering mountains, grassy valleys and a chance to hike or kayak through this exquisite landscape. You’ll come face-to-face with Napasorsuaq, Ketil and Nalumasortoq, the three vast mountains of Klosterdal, where you could step ashore to hike through the valley or paddle around the shoreline in a kayak. Continuing on through the fjord you reach Nanortalik, a magical landscape of plunging fjords, cragged cliffs and clusters of emerald woodlands and waving grassy meadows. Here the local residents have opened up their town to visitors and you could explore the small 1916 Danish Lutheran church and the Museum where summer tents, kayaks and the oldest known cargo boat shed light on the lives of Nanotalik’s former inhabitants.
