South Greenland

South Greenland is an area of contrast between green pastures with sheep farms and the ice fjords and glaciers and big jagged mountains.  This is an area which  Norse-Icelandic viking settlements and ruins. Fishing is abundant in the endless rivers and lakes, and hiking is excellent, with lots of dirt roads and hiking trails between the sheep farms.  Summer climate and hot springs contribute to abundance of fresh vegetables and fjord kayaking is popular. You will find remains from the Viking settlements in UNESCO World Heritage gems such as Qassiasuk and Igaliko.
