1) Make sure to check out the official Arctic Circle Trail website where you can find the most updated information on the Arctic Circle Trail and its individual routes.
2) This Ultimate Guide to Hiking the ACT is one of the key resources on the web and we encourage you to read it from beginning to end and refer back to it as you prepare for your trip.
3) The Hiking in Greenland: The Arctic Circle Trail guidebook by Cicerone is currently being updated and provides a detailed description of the trail as well as general information about the region through which you will hike.
4) The Arctic Circle Trail spans 3 hiking maps – Kangerlussuaq, Pingu and Sisimiut. Purchasing these maps can help you with planning your staging for your hike, particularly if you are keen to camp away from the huts. These maps can be purchased online at Harvey Maps (UK) and Scanmaps (Denmark). In Kangerlussuaq itself, you can usually purchase these maps at Polar Lodge, Old Camp and at the souvenir shop inside the airport. There is also a map that spans the whole trail that can usually be found at Vivi’s Shop (directly opposite the airport exit) and at By Heart (the souvenir shop close to Pilersuisoq supermarket). In Sisimiut, you can purchase the 3 separate hiking maps at Hotel Sisimiut.
5) If you are a Facebook user, it is interesting to join the Arctic Circle Trail Facebook group where you can ask questions (though it is courtesy to search to see if your question has already been answered before asking again), and share photos and experiences. Some participants in the group have hiked the trail several times and have loads of knowledge about the area.
6) If you can’t find the answer to your question, you can ask Destination Arctic Circle (the regional destination management organisation) directly, by sending a message on their Facebook page, or emailing email@example.com.
