Nanortalik Greenland

Our second stop in Greenland was in Nanortalik, which in the Greenlandic language means "place with polar bears" though you're not likely to see a polar bear there (more marketing? :-). Although it is the 11th largest town in Greenland it only has a population of 1,185 people. Another town that when a cruise ship stops there suddenly doubles in size for the day. We hadn't booked any tours for that day, but it wasn't really necessary given the small size of the town. We spent much of the day at the Outdoor Museum.

Be sure to go to the outdoor museum when you're there and climb the tower to get a 360° of Nanortalik. The outdoor museum also contains some interesting exhibits from the earlier days of Nanortalik when it was even less populated.
