Exciting and tough hiking routes in Arctic Circle.

In this area you'll find exciting and tough hiking trails.


The trip from Kangerlussuaq to Sisimiut is Greenland’s most famous and classic hike—from the Ice Sheet and all the way out to the coast.

The 103-mile (165 km) route is quite a demanding trail and is not recommended for inexperienced hikers. We can almost guarantee that experienced hikers will find this one of the most memorable and adventurous challenges available.

Most hikers start their trip in Kangerlussuaq, near Greenland’s international airport.
An alternative point of departure is Sisimiut, about 25 minutes away by domestic flight. Between the two towns, there are nine cottages with overnight accommodation, but we usually recommend that people bring tents for maximum flexibility.
