Uummannaq - the city named after the heart-shaped mountain, is also home to Santa Claus' summer residence, about an hours walk from the city to the foot of the mountain lies a traditionally built cabin.

The cabin, built with rocks and turf, was featured as Santa Claus' home, in the popular Danish Christmas tv-show "Nissebanden i Grønland" - which translates to "The elf-gang in Greenland". The show first aired in 1989 and has since then been aired several times and is a bit of a fan-favourite. The Cabin hasn't been changed since the show ended and is therefore filled with props and pictures from the show, making it a popular destination for Danes as it was, for a lot of people, their first impression and connection to Greenland.

The hike itself is fairly flat and do-able for all ages. See availability by clicking "Choose a day" and book your tour today.

What to bring

Warm and practical clothing

Good to know

Dress in layers. You never really know how the weather is going to turn out and it can change pretty quickly, so it is important that you can adjust accordingly.
