Qeqertarsuaq the disco island is a place in Greenland. According to old legends, two sealers hunting for seals in Southern Greenland were irritated by the island being in their way, so they pulled it up north. Towing it via the help of their kayaks, using a strong string of hair from an infant and they moved the island. A witch in Ilulissat was getting annoyed by the approaching island so she cast a spell on it, causing it to run aground. Hence, giving Disco Island its position. Founded in 1773, it is one of Greenlands oldest and smallest towns, hosting a population of a little over a 1,000.
It was initially founded as a whaling station, but now they are also involved in sealing and fishing-primarily for Greenland halibut. So the quay is still full of life when a catch is brought home. Locals also engage in the bottling of spring water. The bottles carry the name 938, and the local water is a popular alternative to the imported water that is still being brought in large amounts from abroad.
The sea around this place holds a unique aquatic life; you can get very close to a number of whales. Especially the Greenland right whale during spring, for which special tours are also arranged. These whales live as old as 250 years. Making it one of the longest living mammals on the earth. The humpbacks also stop by for a summer vacation.
Due to its characteristic octagonal shape, the church in Qeqertarsuaq is called the Lord's Ink Pot and is definitely worth visiting. So is the museum located in the old doctor's house and the former estate of the governor of Northern Greenland, a title used in the past. A really unusual sight that you are not likely to witness anywhere but in Qeqertarsuaq is football being played on a backdrop of floating icebergs. It is a remarkable sight to see the youngsters run around after the ball in these spectacular settings making it hard to keep your eyes on the ball.
