Start planning your cruise and book your excursions to Nuuk
Nuuk, on the southwestern coast of Greenland, is the world’s most northerly capital and a genuine arctic jewel. This MSC Northern Europe Cruises destination is known for its colourful houses, unspoiled mountain backdrop, waterfalls, and icebergs.
MSC Cruises excursions offer plenty of exciting things to see including:
• Hiking Around Mount Quassussuaq
• Greenlandic Specialties Tasting
• Fjord Safari by Boat
Mount Quassussuaq, a popular skiing and hiking resort, is an exciting MSC Cruises excursion. Whether you’re an experienced hiker or an outdoor novice, the 440m mountain is an accessible climb for all! Admire torrents and small lakes that flank the footpaths before taking in the astonishing panorama. After conquering the summit, pause for breath in the pure northern air and gaze at the fjords below.
Take an MSC Cruises excursion to the Inuk Hostels, located in Nuuk’s spectacular outskirts. Visit Greenland’s oldest and largest brewery, founded in 2006, where you’ll learn about brewing beer in a remote part of the world! Gain insight into a unique range of Greenlandic beers which are exclusive to the country. A tasting opportunity makes for a fun afternoon —especially for beer buffs!
The uninhabited island of Sermitsiaq is an exciting MSC Cruises excursion. Here, you’ll glimpse a melting glacier that feeds a waterfall which cascades into the fjord below. Travel to one of three mountainous islands located in the Nuup Kangerlua fjord. Remember to keep your eyes peeled and your camera ready for seals, humpback whales, and seabirds.
