Walk around the village, take pictures and, if you are lucky, meet the Inuit returning from hunting and sorting caught seals. Go deeper into the fjord, towards the Knud Rasmussen glacier. These areas are often referred to as "Greenland′s Patagonia": huge gear mountains will soar above our ship. You can have a walk to the glacier along the fjord or go fishing.

Long ago, in the land of Kuummiut, there was a powerful shaman named Nanuq. He was known throughout the village for his abilities to communicate with spirits and control the elements.

One winter, as the villagers were preparing for the annual hunting season, Nanuq received a vision from the spirits. They told him that the ice in the nearby fjord was unstable and that if the hunters were to venture out, they would fall through the ice and perish in the freezing water.

Nanuq knew that he had to warn the villagers, but they were skeptical of his abilities and dismissed his warning as superstition. The hunters set out as planned, and soon enough, the ice beneath them began to crack and break apart.

As the hunters struggled to stay afloat, Nanuq used his powers to summon a great wave that swept the hunters to the safety of the shore. The villagers were amazed and finally recognized the shaman's power.

From then on, Nanuq was revered as a hero and his warnings were heeded without question. The port of Kuummiut became known as a place of great spiritual power, where the spirits and the elements could be communicated with and controlled.

To this day, the villagers of Kuummiut honor Nanuq's legacy and continue to seek guidance from the spirits of the land and sea. And those who visit the port can feel the powerful energy that still resonates in the air.
