Where History And Mountains Meet

Tasermiut Fjord is well-known for its spectacular beauty. With its sky-high mountains, reflecting themselves in the still waters of the fjord, the inhabitants of the surrounding area has crowned it as a wonder of the Arctic. The nature around Tasermiut will definitely take your breath away and drain you emotionally with its beauty, it is the perfect location for creating and photographing moments lasting a lifetime.


Uiluit Qaqqaa also known as Ketil Mountain together with Nalumasortoq and Ulamertorsuaq are a group of three walls of rocky mountains. Beneath those massive mountains, therein lies Klosterdalen (Monastery Valley). In the old age of Viking era, Nordic settlers came to this place and left us ruins including what once was a Monastery hence the name Monastery Valley. This particular place is famous for its mountains once formed by the glaciers and for a reason, attracts a lot of trekkers and climbers and simply put this place is a pure miracle formed by the nature itself that you would just stop and applaud the nature for a place like this. I believe these Nordic settlers had the same thought and chose this place.

The Icecap

The last destination of the day will be a branch of the Greenland ice cap. When arriving at the glacier, you will be overwhelmed with its enormous size. But this branch is yet a small part of the Greenland ice cap, that covers 80% of the country. Stand in the blue and white nuanced rays of the soaring glacier, while the arctic winds long to play with your hair. It is a unique and once in a lifetime experience, that will drain you emotionally with its beauty.
