How to arrive

By ferry from another region

Arctic Umiaq Line operates Sarfaq Ittuk, the domestic passenger ferry whose voyage connects South Greenland with all of the towns on Greenland’s west coast up to Ilulissat in North Greenland. The ferry sails virtually year-round, with arrivals to two towns in South Greenland, Narsaq and Qaqortoq, like clockwork on Wednesdays. If your holiday is a combination of South Greenland with another region on the west coast, sailing with Sarfaq Ittuk is a fantastic way to turn transit into a 2-3 day excursion for itself.
