I plan to travel on the MS Sarfaq Ittuk ferry operated by Arctic Umiaq Line. I intend to bring a 450g Primus gas canister, as my destination is quite small and might not sell any (they are for sale in Narsarsuaq). Are there any restrictions on bringing gas canisters onboard the MS Sarfaq Ittuk?

There's no mention of any prohibited items on the Arctic Umiaq Line (AUL) website. Even weapons are permitted, they just need to be handed over to the crew!

I took a similar gas cartridge last summer on a ferry from France to the UK and back. Didn't have any problems.

Since the AUL provides essential transport for otherwise unreachable communities, I doubt they would have any problems with a camping gas cartridge.
