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.

Hi Anna, Kari was the best guide/driver I have experienced in my 77 years of travel; he has my highest recommendation. He thought the roads might well be closed the day he picked up us (and they were) so he came into the city from his suburban home and stayed at a hotel the night before to meet us on time. Since we could not get out of the city, he took us around to quaint places we had not seen and then to a friend's house for coffee and a live music session until some roads opened around noon. With an internet app, he found which roads might be open and took a long route to reach what we wanted to see, staying with us until almost 8 P.M. to include everything. Similarly, he spent longer than agreed with us the next two days to deal with road closing and still show us what we wished to see plus additional things we did not know about. Kari was kind and considerate, taking wonderful care of both me with some limitations at 77 years old and my very active 50 year old son. He was knowledgeable, down-to-earth, and funny. My son really enjoyed their conversations. If my writing any more accolades for Kari would help him in any way, I certainly will. He is a rare find so please keep him as your best guide/driver. Sincerely, Marilyn Story
