The fact that approximately 30% of snowmobiles in the whole Greenland are registered in Sisimiut (Greenland in Figures 2020) shows just how active the people of Sisimiut are, especially in the winter time. The city is surrounded by mountains and hills and also has a big back country. Sisimiut is an ideal destination especially for nature lovers.

However, in recent years you can hear the buzz of this mosquito already in July. In Sisimiut, it is very common for locals to wear a mosquito net on the street while walking around and waiting for a bus.
