Within an hour’s sail, you will arrive at the secluded haven of Uunartoq Island, a landscape untouched by time, surrounded by majestic mountains, icebergs of various shapes and sizes, and the serene Arctic seas. Step ashore into the wilderness, where a hidden path leads you to the island’s treasure: the naturally heated springs. Immerse yourself in the warmth of these waters, enveloped by the quiet beauty of your surroundings.


Shrouded in ancient Inuit legends, Uunartoq Island has remained uninhabited, whispered to be a place of spirits visible only in the mist that occasionally shrouds the land. Yet, today, it is the island’s breathtaking beauty that truly captivates those who visit. The thermal baths, once a healing sanctuary for Norsemen, now offer a peaceful escape, inviting you to unwind in their healing embrace.


Discover the serene allure of Uunartoq Island with us, where the majesty of the Arctic unfolds in an intimate setting, offering a journey not just to a place, but to tranquility itself.
