Napasoq is Destination Arctic Circle’s smallest settlement with just 72 inhabitants. Whaling and fishing traditions run through this community that continues to be deeply connected to the sea and its resources.
Located on a small island about 1 hour sailing south of Maniitsoq, Napasoq receives very few tourists. It is, however, a paradise for whales, seals and fish that can often be found right in the harbour. It is also home to one of the most beautiful church interiors in Greenland.
How to get to Napasoq
Maniitsoq Tour Boat offers a weekly scheduled transfer between Maniitsoq and Napasoq 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.
