Qeqertarsuaq Holidays

Qeqertarsuaq lies on the southern island of the same name, which means "the big island" but it is also know as Disko. It has some characteristic, snow-covered basalt cliffs, which are markedly different to the mountains on the mainland. Glaciers dominate Qeqertarsuaq, but there are also hot springs, as well as verdant hillsides and valleys. The town was founded by whaler Svend Sandgreen in 1773. Whaling has been very important ever since for Qeqertarsuaq, also known as Godhavn in Danish. Hunting and fishing are still the main occupations of the island's inhabitants, of whom nearly 900 live in Qeqertarsuaq and about 40 in the settlement of Kangerluk, a few hours sailing north-west.
