Aningaaq R. Carlsen, Visit Greenland


Situated in a fjord system known for its abundant whales and seals, hiking, and mineral deposits, Narsaq is also a hub for sheep farming in South Greenland.

Narsaq is located between the Tunulliarfik Fjord and Sermilik Fjords, closer to the open sea than Narsarsuaq. Visitors must first arrive at the international airport in Narsarsuaq with AIR GREENLAND and then catch either a boat or helicopter transfer to Narsaq, while domestic travellers also have the option of catching the Sarfaq Ittuk passenger ferry.

The best time to visit is June – October when hiking, fishing and sailing are at their peak. During winter, most organised excursions from towns in South Greenland hibernate though it is still possible to enjoy the pristine snow if you have your own gear.
