What's Going on in Tasiilaq?
The small village in the east of Greenland offers a wide range of adventures in the wild and unspoilt Arctic countryside. Only few tourists come to the snowy village at Kong Oscars Havn during the rough, cold and dark winters. In spring and particularly in summer Tasiilaq comes to life and presents itself as a true paradise for outdoor specialists, offering sports activities off the beaten track, such as dog sled rides through the deserted countryside of the Arctic, ski rides on unspoilt hills, whale watching between icebergs, kayak rides along the fjord and hot tea in the evening while watching polar lights: Tasiilaq is a paradise of nature and untamed beauty in the Arctic.
The diversity of flora and fauna also attracts many scientists who visit Greenland and Ammassalik Island in summer. Whereas Summit Camp is a year-round research station on the apex of the Greenland Ice Sheet, Sermilik Research Station, situated at the basin of Mittivakkat glacier (Mitdluagkat) in the west of Ammasalik Island, is only open in summer and houses up to ten researchers.
