Qasigiannguit – Greenland

Panorama of Qasigiannguit, the port on the left, Hotel Diskobay, the first house coming over the dam, and the town with its colourful house for some 1300 inhabitants to the right.

In the “Capital of Whales” you may be lucky to see humpback whales from the hotel, beginning of June was a bit too early, but we’ve seen 4 (2 of them been very close). Apparently a bit later in the year you might be able to see the whales playing around…
… but, unfortunately, at this time, there will be far more mosquitoes than whales, and may be you can spot some whales, but sure enough the mosquitos will find you too.
