Nuuk, Iceland

As the oldest town in Greenland, Nuuk offers visitors a glimpse of old Greenlandic culture. Visit the harbor and view Greenlandic hunters bringing in seal and reindeer to be sold at the local market. Go hiking around Lille Malene, whale watching in the ocean or explore abandoned settlements. There’s so much wildlife to see as Nuuk is home to whales, seals, reindeer, arctic foxes, arctic hares and ravens.

Stroll around the harbor with its quaint old buildings and newly renovated market where locals sell their daily catch. Greenland’s history comes alive in the National Museum, and its culture thrives in the Nuuk Museum of Art and the Katuaq Cultural Centre.
