Enjoy hiking in the summer breeze

The hike starts in the backyard of Qinngorput, the third and newest part of Nuuk. It is a trip that visitors and locals love to hike. Although the route is so close to the city, you still feel that you are far from the civilization as you are surrounded by mountains, nature and fauna.

The highlight of the tour is reaching one of the high peaks of Quassussuaq, where we enjoy the view of the fjord system and the trademark of Nuuk, Sermitsiaq Mountain.

Tour code: NU9

Number of participants: Minimum 1 person – Maximum 6 persons
