Qeqertarsuaq is situated on the old volcanic island of Disko and plays host to the Arctic Station, part of Copenhagen University, studying flora, fauna and the climate.

The town of Uummannaq is situated in scenic surroundings at the foot of a nearly-mile high heart-shaped mountain. Here, you may join a walking tour, or just stroll around this beautiful town on your own.
