Another day trip option is to hike to the peak of the 2,532-foot-tall (772 m) Big Malene.
From the top, you can enjoy views of Nuuk, Akia (Nordlandet), Sermitsiaq and the Kangerluarsunnguaq Fjord with its spectacular glaciers. One of the routes follows the masts that lead to the Buksefjord hydro power plant. The ascent can be difficult in inclement weather but pretty straightforward in dry weather.
The ascent is gradual but some places have uncovered rock surfaces which may be slippery in bad weather.
