An Arctic Paradise
Imagine rolling hills surrounded by deep blue fjords and sheltered from the open sea by dozens of off-shore islands. The Vikings were the first Europeans to settle in this micro-climate more than 1,000 years ago. Although Narsaq is only 30 kilometers away from the ice cap, and icebergs can be seen drifting in the fjord all year long, the landscape literally explodes into bloom in summer. Many locals have large gardens with flowers and vegetables, a rarity in other parts of Greenland.
