A short hiking in the beautiful countryside of Narsarsuaq

Hiking in Greenland is a great adventure that is suitable for everyone. If the long hiking route is not your cup of tea, this 3-hour hiking excursion is for sure your best choice.

Departure at Hotel Narsarsuaq, we will drive around to pick up all the participants. Once everyone is ready, we will head to the beginning point of this ridge. Please make sure that you are reachable through mobile in Greenland to facilitate a smooth pick-up and communication.

In the beginning spot of this excursion, you will find yourself in a filed with a great variety of flowers and plants. It is called “Flower Valley”, and we will start hiking from here.

After some moderate hiking, we will reach a top of a highland. From there, you can enjoy the amazing view over the flower valley, the stream, the fjord and the Narsarsuaq Glacier in the distance.
