Kaffe-mik Kaffe-mik (coffee party) is an old tradition where a family invites many guests into their home in case of celebration (weddings, birthdays etc.) to drink coffee or tea and taste the famous Greenlandic cake. The guests stay for 15 to 30 minutes only. We will arrange a kaffe-mik in the Culture House (public toilets inside).

Greenlandic folk dance. This is a unique opportunity to experience lively Greenlandic folk dances performed by children from 7 to 16 years of age.
