Create an itinerary including Church of Kap Dan
Located atop a hill overlooking the small village of Kulusuk, Church of Kap Dan draws visitors with its interesting history and unusual design. Built in 1908 from the ruins of a ship, the church serves as a gathering place for many locals and visitors. At the entrance, note the carved statue of an Eskimo woman facing the sea. The interior is quite modest, with a focus on the large, intricate stained glass windows that create colorful light inside. Inspect the altar, decorated with animal fur, and take some time to soak in the overall atmosphere of the place.

  • I was visiting Greenland as part of a small tour group. The church was very well maintained and didn't expect it to be so nice. I have a video of the church on my YouTube Travel Channel...

  • We visited the church in Kulusuk. It was very interesting and very colorful. The candle sticks were inlaid with ivory. The kneeling pads at the altar were covered with sealskin. Like many churches...

  • This church is not used much but it is kept up. The seal skin kneeling mats are nice. The stained glass windows are pretty as well. Nice.
