"A picture says more than a thousand words. Or so I've heard. But experiencing a humpback whale on 5 meters said more to me than a thousand pictures.”

Dannielle Bertelsen, DK

Translated: "I was a bit skeptical going to Aasiaat. Only few tourists go there and after my trip I'm left with one big question: WHY?”

Dorothy Tinmann, DE

"32°C below zero, northern lights during night time, dogs howling and some very friendly people. Thank you Aasiaat!”
