Many people who have travelled the world are certain that East Greenland is the most beautiful place on earth; few places are as remote and pristine. The word “Tunu” translates into “backside” and is used by Greenlanders to describe East- Greenland. The 1.500 nautical miles (2.700 km) stretch of the east coast includes the world’s largest national park and three bays with a total of 3.500 inhabitants and a very limited flow of visitors. Untouched and unspoiled, East Greenland is spectacular, rough and remote. It is the perfect place for real yachting adventure for those who love to experience unspoiled nature. Eastern Greenland will impress you with enormous glaciers, the continental ice as well as the rugged and steep terrain which comprises the deep fjords.
South Greenland is often referred to as the ‘Garden of Greenland, with beautiful fjords and colourful valleys offering amazing hiking experiences for the active explorer. The landscape is a stunning myriad of mountain peaks, glaciers, and deep fjords. Erik the Red (Icelandic Eiríkur Rauði) founder of the settlement of Greenland first landed here in 985. Erik the Red was the father of Leif Eiríksson the first explorer of North America. Erik the Red left Iceland after being exiled after killing his fellow farmer, he rounded the southern tip of Greenland and settled on an island at the mouth of Eriksfjörð (now known as Tunulliarfik Fjord) near Qaqortoq (formerly Julianehåb). From there they explored the west and north for two years. Erik chose the inner area of Eriksfjord for his settlement which he called Brattahlid (“Steep Slope”) now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. He named the country Greenland in the belief that a good name would attract settlers.
