Since no two towns on the entire island are connected
by roads, boats are an important menas of transportation.

or Disko Line.
During the summer season, there are also flights between Reykjavik and Narsarsuaq.

Airlines offer a certain number of seats at reduced fares. Economy round-trip tickets from Copenhagen to Narsarsuaq are usually sold out many
months ahead of the main summer tourist season.
