Silversea Luxury Cruises To QAANAAQ (Thule)

Silversea Luxury Cruises - Qaanaaq

With a population of approximately 600 inhabitants, Qaanaaq -formerly known as Thule- is Greenland’s fifteenth largest town. Qaanaaq is considered one of the northernmost towns in the world, but there are two settlements within Greenland that are slightly further north. Although the region had already been used by Paleo-Eskimos some 4,000 years ago permanent settlements only started with the presence of American explorers as well as Danish missionaries and traders in the late 19th and early 20th century.

In the 1950s the majority of the forefathers of today’s population was forced to move from settlements further south to a newly constructed village (the actual Qaanaaq) as the site of their old villages was being used by the American Air Force during the Cold War. The town has a small museum with a nice collection of “tupilaks” and several local artists produce these highly coveted bone carvings of ghosts.
