Qaqortoq, a rocky location on the tip of the peninsula is the country's main port as well as its cultural base. Artistic creations abound here. The country features a vast area of tundra and glaciers. Chartered flights are required to reach the more remote areas. However, ferries and helicopters do service certain destinations.

The Southern Fjords include excellent climbing opportunities on spires of granite rock such as The Baroness, Uiluit Qaaga, and Ulamertorsuaq. Cruising down the fjords is exciting with varying distances and attractions to see.

Upernavik's historical district includes Greenland's oldest museum, the Upernavik Old Town Museum. The museum features the original qajaq ensemble with bird skewer, harpoon, and throwing stick.

Ilulissat Kangerlua is one of the best tourist attractions in Greenland. This glacier-fed bay is filled with icebergs with the amazing size of entire buildings. Occasionally the excitement is intensified when the icebergs emit an exploding sound in the hot summer sun. Dog sled tours are also available at this location.
