Atammik is located only 2 hours north of Nuuk (~80km south of Maniitsoq) near the southern border of the Arctic Circle region. The fjord system and open sea is integral to the survival of this small fishing community of 190 people who continue to follow a more traditional lifestyle.
Few tourists stay here, though the landscape around the settlement is more gentle than elsewhere in the region and offers plenty of opportunities for experienced backcountry hikers.
How to get to Atammik
Maniitsoq Tour Boat offers a weekly scheduled transfer between Maniitsoq and Atammik throughout the year. From April – November, the twice-weekly Nuuk – Maniitsoq fast transfer also calls in at the settlement.
Alternatively, you can charter a boat from Maniitsoq Tour Boat or Maniitsoq Adventure Tours to sail you there.
