Hiking Greenland – Sisimiut’s UFO Hut

My plan upon arriving in Sisimiut after trekking the 160km Arctic Circle Trail from Kangerlussuaq, was to spend several more days in town doing day-hikes around the area. I found .gpx trails for several hikes at Destination Arctic Circle (thanks guys!) and was super-keen to do the “UFO Hike” in particular. After all, what exactly …

Hiking Greenland – Nasaasaaq Mountain – Sisimiut

The most popular day-hike from Sisimiut is the climb up Palasip Qaqqaa – the 544m mountain that overlooks the airport. However, Tyson and I aren’t really ones to follow the crowds, and so on the first clear day after arriving in Sisimiut, we decided to tackle the pyramid-shaped Nasaasaaq Mountain (784m) instead. We picked up …

Traditional Greenlandic Buffet – Hotel Sisimiut

Two of my greatest joys in life are hiking and trekking, and eating excellent or interesting food. Unfortunately, I didn’t have much of an opportunity to try traditional Greenlandic food during my 5 week visit in 2017. The best I managed was a Musk Ox Sled Dog and some whale at the amazing CaféTuaq in the …

Last day on the Arctic Circle Trail.  Hard to believe it is over already! Tyson and I were up early (well, for us anyway) for a 7am departure.  It was 22km to Sisimiut and we wanted to get there just after lunch to ensure we managed to secure a bunk at the hostel.  No more …
