About Qaqortoq

As you sail into the remote port of Qaqortoq, you'll be greeted by the sight of the spectacular rocky mountains whose distinctive peaks carve a jagged path into the skyline. Lying at their feet is the pretty harbour with its colourful wooden houses.

Spend time soaking up the breathtaking scenery or head to the colonial part of town to enjoy a snapshot of Greenland's history in the Town Musuem, which is in the town's oldest building. Located in the town square, next to the fountain, you will discover how the settlement was founded in 1775 and learn about the fascinating Inuit culture.

As you further explore the idyllic, green town you may also wish to visit the striking Saviour's Church and view the curious "Stone and Man" carvings, which transform the town into a big sculpture park. And if you are inspired by these unusual works of art, you may wish to browse the large selection of Greenlandic arts and crafts on offer.

Due to a limited infrastructure, no shore excursions operate in this port.
