Sisimiut Winter Break - 5 days

5 Day Tour, from £2145 per person

Lying inside the Arctic Circle, Sisimiut is Greenland’s second largest town and has been inhabited for around 4,500 years, from the people of the Saqqaq culture who arrived from the Arctic regions of Canada, through to the descendants of the Thule culture who make up the majority of today’s population.

The area around Sisimiut is a paradise for nature lovers where in summer you can enjoy flower-filled valleys whilst hiking a wide-variety of trails under the midnight sun, enjoy fishing for cod out at sea and go e-biking to explore the nearby mountains.
