Explore the fascinating and awe-inspiring Quassussuaq mountain ridge on foot.  Quassussuaq is a local gem – adored by all locals of Nuuk. Quassussuaq is Greenlandic for the large mountain ridge, however the hike is fairly easy.

Make your way to the heart of Nuuk, and you will be introduced to your guide Morten at Pikkori Sport. From here a 10 to 20 minute ride out of town awaits you and your fellow explorers! Your adventure starts by the foot of the mountain and takes you 433 meters above sea level. Enroute your guide tell you all about whatever plants or wildlife you might encounter on the way.

The hike offers some amazing views over Nuuk as well as deep into the fjord, where you might even be able to spot whales in the distance. The 433 meter ascend to the top is a cherished hike among the locals, and you’ll often find others enjoying themselves there, or training for something like the arctic circle race. After you have conquered the 433 meters, enjoy the view with a well deserved cup of coffee!

Nuuk has its fair share of eagles, and you might be lucky to find one soaring above your head as well as the occasional ptarmigan, hare or fox. Let the arctic winds slip through your hair and enjoy the orang rays of arctic sun!
