In Greenland you don’t have to go far from the city before you are right in the middle of untamed wilderness with great hiking trails. On this hike you will walk on a path formed by old reindeer tracks. The 7 km route features coastal views, pristine brooks and springs, and a ramble through a scenic valley.
Walk through "paradise valley"
After a bus trip from the harbour, the hike starts along the north coast of Nuuk where you’ll have great coastal views of the fjord system and the towering mountain of Sermitsiaq. From there we’ll move inward through the “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. The trail bends around the small lake of Qallusuaq Cirkussoen before it ends in the new Nuuk suburb of Qinngorput, where we’ll take the bus back to the city. There will be a lunch break in these beautiful surroundings. The expert guides will keep you on the right path and answer any questions you may have on the local environment or life in Greenland.
