Arsuk, founded in 1805 is a small settlement located 130 km south of Paamiut in south Greenland. Arsuk was named after it’s location in Arsuk fjord. The settlement has around 170 inhabitants and are the descendants from the Inugsuk-culture who settled in the Arsuk fjord around year 1400.


The vikings (nordboere) was also present in the Arsuk fjord between year 985 and 1400 where they for unknown reasons abandoned the area. The ruins from the vikings are still present in the fjord.
