Local sellers; Trading Post: "Tupilaq" Kulusuk Shopping Tip by Kalexus

Kulusuk Shopping: 4 reviews and 8 photos


There are no real shops in Kulusuk except the trading post. Tupilaqs are generally bought either at the trading post or from local sellers, who spot you as a tourist (and therefore potential tupilaq buyer) and will show you the tupilaqs they have made. Hotel Kulusuk might also sell tupilaqs and other locally made things.

What to buy: Tupilaqs are weird-looking monsters from the Inuit folklore, that are usually made of reindeer horn and are a typical souvenir and collectible.

What to pay: 200-400 Danish kroner, depends on the size

Theme: Local Craft
