How to find out which sheep farm you should visit:
In addition to gaining insight into life as an Arctic farmer, you will take something different home with you from your holiday on a sheep farm, all depending on which farm you choose to visit:
● Ellen Frederiksen, who owns Illunnguujuk Hostel in Qassiarsuk, is especially known for her "kaffemikker" (open house where coffee is served) and her story-telling.
● Ineruulalik Guest Farm has Icelandic horses and offers riding holidays, among other things.
● In the lush Tasiusaq you have the opportunity to get really close to the ice that gathers in the nearby bay. Here you can hire kayaks and, at your own pace, row around between the large floating chunks of ice.
● Even though Ipiutaq Guest Farm is the most remote sheep farm on the Narsaq peninsula, it is famous for its luxury. Here you have a warm duvet, a clean bath and gourmet food from entrepreneur Agathe Devisme's own kitchen.
● If you want to hike from farm to farm, then spend the nights at the beautifully-situated farms of Sillisit and Nunataaq. Along with Qassiarsuk, Tasiusaq and Inneruulalik, these farms allow for longer hikes. You can also book luggage transport between the farms.
● Besides the Narsaq peninsula there is also an opportunity to experience the life of the South Greenland sheep farmers in the beautiful village of Igaliku. You can stay in Igaliku Country Hotel; they offer meals and rooms with shared bathroom and accommodation in cabins.
● South of Qaqortoq, you can, among other things, visit the sheep farm Tasiluk. Stay and buy fresh vegetables from the host couple Otto and Paornanguaq Nielsen. At another sheep farm, Kangerluarsorujuk, meet Makkak and Lars Nielsen who offers homemade food based on Greenlandic ingredients and cabin accommodation.
