Visit Hvalsey Church and Qaqortoq, the capital city of Southern Greenland

Visit Hvalsey Church and Qaqortoq the capital city of Southern Greenland

Offering an introduction to Greenland’s early settlers, a visit to Hvalsey Church is an opportunity to explore the best-preserved Norse ruins in the country. While Christianity arrived here around 1,000 years ago, Hvalsey’s church is thought to have been built in the 14th century by Scots-Norse stonemasons and is similar in structure to those found in Orkney and Norway. After exploring the church and farm buildings of the site, you sail on to Qaqortoq and travel ashore by Zodiac. As the capital of South Greenland, Qaqortoq is a cultural hotspot and home to a number of artistic diversions, including a ‘Man and Stone’ art project that dots the town with its exhibits and can be enjoyed as you stroll around the streets. You could watch a kayak performance, pop into local restaurants and cafes to sample local specialities, walk around the scenic lake or join a walking tour led by local students.
