A hike up Palasip Qaqqaa will enchant your senses as you take in the beautiful verdant mountains, breathe the clear, clean air and drink the pure water.
The trail offers a trek up a lush, south-facing slope with staggering views of the town and surrounding areas. The hike takes place in lush green terrain with beautiful bushes, flowers and myriad shades of moss. On the way, we also encounter many small waterfalls where we can fill our water bottles with some of the purest spring water in the world.
The top of the mountain offers unbelievable vistas of the town and Kangerluarsuk Tulleq (First Fjord). The last couple of years have even offered sightings of muskoxen.
