your article is misleading. Bornholm is not in Greenland. I have been to Narsarsuaq and I don't think all of the pictures you show are of Narsarsuaq, i do not recall a church there. It has to be said it is a fascinating place, with relatively easy walk to the Ice cap. I have also been to Kangerlussak from where you can also reach the Ice Cap- people do treks across the ice from here-  and to Ilulissiat. a visit to Ilulissiat is something that will stay with you for life, and if you take the ferry to Disco Island, you truly have dropped off planet Earth. You don't need to be an explorer to go to Greenland, there are normal hotels and internet. You just have to be prepared that the weather dictates what can and cannot be done.

Hello Florence Miller,

thank you for visinting our website...

I think you've confused the Danish island Bornholm with Kap Bornholm of Greenland. Also, we understand that you've been to Narsarsuaq and think that the pictures are not captured at the place, but I assure you..they're of Narsarsuaq itself :)

And as you said that Greenland's an amazing place, we think someone visiting Greenland would want to explore it, rather than staying at a common(, not something to write about) hotel :)
