Northern Lights

In the heart of Greenland, Nuuk offers a front-row seat to one of nature’s most captivating displays: the Northern Lights. As darkness falls, emerald, amethyst, and sapphire hues gracefully dance across the Arctic sky, leaving spectators in awe of this phenomenon everytime.



In Nuuk, you find our National Museum, and we also have Katuaq, the cultural house of Greenland. Concerts, theater performances, movies, and exhibitions are common events here. Nuuk is traditional Greenlandic polka music, and we love our slow hymns – but Nuuk is also classical music, hip-hop, and techno.



In Nuuk you’ll find accommodations that marry comfort with natural beauty. From fjord-view guesthouses to modern waterfront hotels, each promises a peaceful retreat after a long day of exploration.


Nature surrounding Nuuk

You don’t have to go far out of  Nuuk to experience amazing tranquility. A hike behind the airport and the nearby fjord system will give you that sense. The fjord system, the second largest in the world, is green and warm in summer, and it’s a spectacular sight in the winter with the tall mountains and cliffs blanketed in snow.


The Whales and the Fjords

A whale photo safari is a must, as are boat journeys to the historic communities near Nuuk. Humpback whales and minke whales are frequently seen around Nuuk. An hour’s sailing from Nuuk, you’ll find Qooqqut Nuan’ Restaurant, serving amazing food. You can go on a boat trip and catch what will be put on your plate later!
