Oqaatsoq is a charming but very isolated colourful village, on the coast of Greenland. In winter it can only be reached by helicopter.
Wander amongst the fish and musk ox drying on lines while their heads on palettes.
45 People live in Oqaatsoq. You can spend a few hours - or more- in Oqaatsoq. The inhabitants of this little village are open to visitors. Within the village you can find handicrafts. A lovely fifteen kilometre hiking trail links Oqaatsoq to Ilulissat.
If, like me, you get there by boat, take the time to admire the coast around Oqaatsoq and keep an eye out: there are lots of whales in the icy waters of the bay of Disko.
