In Greenland you don’t have to go far from the city before you are right in the middle of untamed wilderness and great hiking trails. On this hike you walk on a path formed by old reindeer tracks. The 4.3-mile route features coastal views, pristine brooks and springs, and a ramble through a scenic valley.
After a bus trip from the harbor, the hike starts along the north coast of Nuuk where you get great coastal views of the fjord system and the towering mountain of Sermitsiaq. From there we move inland through “Paradise Valley”, which lies between the mountains of Lille Malene and Store Malene. The open and rugged landscape is scattered with boulders and crossed with streams of clear, drinkable water. We break for lunch in these beautiful surroundings and our expert guides answer any questions you may have about the local environment or life in Greenland. The trail then bends around the small lake of Qallusuaq Cirkussoen before it ends in the new Nuuk suburb of Qinngorput, where we take the bus back to the city.
