A kaffemik is a Greenlandic tradition for special occasions like births and birthdays or first days of school and confirmations. Instead of going out on occasions like this, Greenlanders do these festivities at home. The party is usually prepared for days in advance and the table is decorated with fine china and decorative table linens. With old friends, family from out of town and brand new friends gathered, walking into a kaffemik might feel like a mix of a small reunion and the first day of school.

A kitchen full of Greenlandic specialties!

On a Kaffemik the host impresses with a huge selection of homemade cakes and sweets to complete meals of reindeer, seal, whale and muskox meat, fish soup and other specialties. And you will always find a fresh pot of coffee. As a guest on a kaffemik tour you will definitely get an authentic look at Greenlandic life. You will visit a local's home, and get an insight of what it’s like to live like a Greenlander.
