There are no roads linking any of the towns and settlements in Greenland so travelling by boat is central to the Greenlandic way of life. The coastal passenger ship ‘Sarfaq Ittuk’ sails along the west coast from Ilulissat in the North to Qaqortoq in the green and fertile South, connecting these isolated communities, reuniting families and delivering essential goods. This is a slice of authentic Greenland, up close and personal showcasing the variety that this vast land can offer.
