Phantastic island and worth spending some time. Excellent fishing place for cod. There are only 2 villages on the island, one is Qequertarsuaq and worth a visit. There are several nice walking tours

Well, it is big and it is fantastic. Unfortunately also expensive! Because my daughter was working as a medical doctor in Greenland for three month I had the opportunity to stay... More
