Uunartoq / The Hot Springs

About this trip

Uunatoq is famous for its delighful 38°Celsius (100°fahrenheit) water temperature all year round. The pools are located on an island roughly 40 miles south of Qaqortoq, near the small town of Alluitsup Paa. Enjoy soaking in the hot springs while icebergs drift by in the nearby fjord surrounded by high mountains. We travel by boat roughly 2 1/2 hours each way and usually pass by colossal icebergs. There are plenty of opportunities to see whales along the way, so keep your eyes peeled. And don't forget your swimsuit!
