Isortoq is a gathering place and a community, bringing together people from all over the world, who come here to see nature at it´s most beautiful, experience life in the wild, learn about reindeer herding, fish, hike and explore. We´re passionate about sharing our life here and ensuring that people leave with memories that will last.

Within hiking distance of the station you can find glaciers that lead onto the Greenland ice cap, arctic tundra, mountains, lakes, canyons and valleys with a variety of alpine plants. The land is home to caribou reindeer, arctic hare, sheep, eagles, arctic fox and musk oxen. The rivers and lakes contain a huge number of fish, and the sea is home to seal, several species of whale and is a feeding ground for loons, gulls, and other sea birds.

Isortoq Reindeer Station

Isortoq Reindeer Station was founded in 1990 and since then has been a working farm, exporting reindeer meat and skins to Iceland, Canada, and Finland. The name Isortoq means muddy water in the Greenlandic Inuit language and comes from the nearby glaciers melting and carrying silt and minerals into the rivers.

Living in Isortoq requires self-sufficiency and we pride ourselves on being able to provide food, build, fix or invent whatever´s needed. The food here is some of the freshest, most delicious that you will find anywhere in the world. The reindeer graze on alpine and mountain herbs in the hills surrounding the station and it´s the variety of arctic plants that gives our meat an incredible flavour. Here you can catch fish in the morning and then eat them at lunch.
