Under $100 / Europe

Nuuk is the capital of Greenland and the largest town in the country with 17,000 people. Compared to other capitals around the world, the population is small, but, to Greenland, Nuuk feels like a city. The capital is less visited than most European areas because it’s more isolated. The airport cannot handle larger aircrafts, so most people travel with domestic flights from Reykjavik (KEF) in Iceland. During the summer months when traffic peaks there will only be three or four flights landing at a time.

The best way to make the most of your time in Nuuk is to get out of the city and into the mountains. The mountains of Nuuk are spectacular and a must for any adventurer. It’s not a far walk to the Lille Malene mountain. Walking along a path will make you feel like you’re all alone in the world. The mountains are massive and for the most part deserted. Plan accordingly before heading out into the mountains for a solo trek.

From the mountain peaks, travelers can get a view of the sea and the fjord system in Greenland. The fjords are special because, from certain viewpoints, visitors can spot whales without having to rent a boat. Humpback whales and Minke whales are common to see; the best spot to view them is behind Tele Greenland.

The wonders of nature never end in Nuuk. At night, on clear nights it is easy to see the Northern Lights. Although it’s typically hard to see the lights in cities because of the house and street lights, Nuuk is small so only a short drive is required to see the Northern Lights.
