Tasiilaq Town Walk and Flower Valley

DAY ITINERARY

The walk begins at the Arctic Dream office. Just next door to our office we find the local craft workshop and shop Skunk, where local artists manufacture and sell the most beautiful and renowned traditional handicraft. After a visit here we will continue our walk downhill to towards the harbour. On our way we will visit the town museum, where we can learn about the settlement and development of Tasiilaq over the decades and traditions of Eastern Greenland. The museum itself is housed in an old church, dating back to 1903 – making it one of the oldest buildings in Tasiilaq.

In the harbour you can witness the daily activity of the fishermen and processing of the catch on which Tasiilaq heavily relies.

From the harbour the walk continues long the shores of Kiung Oscar’s fjord, past the hospital and up to the new church. Above the church is a small hill from where you can enjoy a beautiful view over the whole town and surroundings. In this area you will encounter the oldest buildings in town, where the first colony manager; Johan Pedersen and the polar explorer; Einar Mikkelsen lived.

Before we leave the town behind you will have the opportunity to visit the local tourist office. Here it is possible to buy from a selection of handicrafts, books, maps, outdoor wear and postcards.

On the way to the flower valley we will pass the town church yard.

As the name indicates, you will be able to spot a whole range of different flowers in the valley; Arctic Thyme, Arctic Bluebell, Arctic Dandelion etc. Here you will also find the national flower of Greenland, the broad leafed willow.

We will continue the small curved path through the valley for a few kilometres, until we reach a small waterfall at the bottom of the valley. Here we will spend some time, enjoying the views, tasting the incredibly fresh water and relax before returning to town in the afternoon.
