Erik the Red's Viking Ruins

We cross Erik's Fjord by boat and go ashore at the sheep breeding settlement Qassiarsuk, situated on the very spot where Erik the Red settled in 985 AD and named his farm "Brattahlið". We visit the ruins of Erik's farm and Thorhildur's church, the first Christian church on the American continent. This tour is guided.

Our Scandinavian tour was just fantastic. We got to experience the best of this beautiful part of the world in a short period of time. It was a bit of everything – amazing nature, good food, beautiful cities…. Our guide was terrific with her friendliness, knowledge and enthusiasm. All the hotels were very comfortable and good European standard. Overall, it was great experience! Thank you Nordic saga for arranging it for us. - Colleen
