A small and pretty fishing village

Information about Sermiligaaq

On south-east coast just below the Arctic circle, a small and pretty fishing village on a peninsula in Sermilik Fjord.

In Kalaallisut it means "Beautiful glacier fjord” and includes the vast Knud Rasmussen Glacier and the Kârale Glacier. Due west from Iceland, it can be a popular first landing and cruise and to explore for Greenland wildlife, some of which can be more elusive further south, and, if you are very lucky, a Polar Bear, that are scarcer to the south.

Interesting facts about Sermiligaaq

Knud Rasmussen was a Greenlandic–Danish polar explorer and anthropologist that is fondly known as the "father of Eskimology". He was the first European to cross the Northwest Passage by dog sled.
