South Greenland's Culinary Delights

Welcome to our food tasting tour, designed to offer you an authentic taste of Greenland through its distinctive cuisine. This tour is a celebration of Greenland’s rich bounty, emphasizing the traditional practices that have sustained its people for generations. We take pride in sourcing our fish and meat directly from the community’s hunters and fishermen, who are integral to our way of life. By doing so, we guarantee the freshest ingredients, while supporting the traditional livelihoods that are the backbone of our local economy.


In addition to the invaluable contributions of our hunters and fishermen, we also focus on local, organic produce, with ingredients sourced from Upernaviarsuk, an experimental farm located near Qaqortoq. Upernaviarsuk is renowned for its commitment to sustainable farming practices, ensuring that every dish you sample is not only a delight to the senses but also respectful of our environment. This harmonious blend of sea and land offerings showcases the versatility and richness of South Greenland’s natural resources.


A special highlight of our tour is the inclusion of herb wine, crafted by a local winemaker from Tasiusaq, a settlement with around 50 inhabitants. This winemaker is the only certified wine producer in Greenland, offering a unique opportunity to taste a truly local beverage that complements the flavors of our dishes perfectly. Made from native herbs, this wine captures the pristine essence of Greenland’s natural landscape.


Enhancing the food tasting experience is the expertise of a local chef, who prepares traditional Greenlandic dishes with modern twists. As you savor the carefully curated selection, the chef will share insights into the culinary techniques, heritage, and cultural significance behind each dish. This not only enriches your meal but also provides a deep, educational backdrop to the entire experience.


By choosing to join our tour, you’re doing much more than enjoying a culinary adventure; you’re actively contributing to the sustainability of our local community. Your participation supports Greenlandic hunters, fishermen and farmers, ensuring that the traditions and livelihoods that define our culture continue to thrive.
