Silversea Expedition Cruises To KANGAAMIUT (Qeqqata)

KANGAAMIUT (Qeqqata)

Kangaamiut (the People of the Fjords) is a settlement which clings to the shoreline of Greenland's Arctic Circle region, backed by some of the country's most spectacular fjordlands. The nearby pinnacle-shaped mountains gave the Danish-Norwegian colonial settlement its original name of Sukkertoppen (Sugarloaf) and the town recently celebrated its 250th anniversary. Here, one can experience small-town Greenlandic culture at its most authentic. The town is scattered across a small hill, displaying all the colourful buildings of the town at once; it is impossible to take a bad photo here. View more

A system of staircases and boardwalks leads to the top of the hill, an area used to helicopter transport which offers jaw-dropping vistas of the wilderness around the settlement. The locals are proud of their Inuit history and culture, and the people of Kangaamiut are friendly and welcoming to vistors. Depending on the day, one could see local men selling fresh fish or reindeer meat from the surrounding fjords or flensing their catch on the rocks of the harbour, local women selling intricate homemade beaded necklaces and carvings, or even be invited into a local home to share a pot of coffee with some of the friendly residents, who are always happy to have visitors. Although the scenery is world-class, as in many towns in Greenland, wonderful memories of the welcoming residents are the most treasured.

Excursions in KANGAAMIUT (Qeqqata)

Expedition Activities with Silversea Expedition team

Make a memorable stop in Kangaamiut (or Sukkertoppen in Danish), one of Greenland's most scenic villages. Kangaamiut is a small community numbering around 350 inhabitants. Its brightly-colored wooden houses lie scattered over two hills behind the landing site and are picture-postcard perfect!


Arrive with a welcome by locals and a drum dance, as well as the chance to stroll and take in village life. See the flensing of a seal (as possible based upon the timing of the hunt), and enjoy the earnest strains of the local church choir.


Spend some time just like a local at the Community Hall at a Kaffemik, a communal celebration. Enter the charming and small Museum to learn more about Kangaamiut's history.


Return to the ship.

Hiking with Silversea Expedition team

Enjoy a walk up to the helipad via some steep wooden steps and round rocks. A handrail is available most of the way to help you. Once at the top you'll appreciate the effort made as you'll be greeted with an outstanding 360 degree view.

Kayaking with Silversea Expedition team

Paddle along the Arctic coasts with your expedition kayak team in search for exciting, barely accesable places. This glorious region is both pristine and unforgettable and best viewed from the water!
