Spirit of Discovery blog


24th July, 2022

We sailed into Qaqortoq with the usual morning fog at 0730. Compared to many places we have visited in Greenland this town is populous, with more than 3,000 residents. Despite this there are no road connections. As far as archaeologists have been able to determine, civilisation has existed here for as many as 4,300 years, and this history is showcased in the local museum which exhibits Inuit boats, hunting equipment and other artefacts.

This is the penultimate call on this cruise, but our final call in Greenland, and we are sorry to be saying goodbye to the country, her landscape, scenery, and people. Our thanks to the people of Greenland for their hospitality; we look forward to visiting again next year.

Kind Regards
Deck Cadet Matthew English
