Nuuk

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.
