Nuuk

Museums Sightseeing Nightlife
Home to a quarter of the nation's population, Nuuk represents the nation's cultural and economic center and holds the title as the world's smallest and northernmost capital. A vacation in Nuuk reveals an isolated place with a long history--both the Vikings and Inuit people struggled to survive the harsh winter conditions here, leaving behind many artifacts now exhibited in various national history museums. For most visitors a tour of Nuuk includes whale watching, going on popular cruises and guided tours, hiking to the nearby landmark mountains, and participating in challenging marathons. Add Nuuk and other destinations in Greenland to your travel itinerary using our Greenland itinerary builder.
