Snowshoe Winter Hike | Sisimiut

Test your skills with snowshoes and go discover the beautiful backcountry of Sisimiut. We’ll be hiking along the mountains, going south towards ancient moraines where we can clearly see traces of the glaciers that shaped the terrain as they slowly but steadily moved towards the sea.

We might be lucky in spotting wildlife such as Arctic hares and ptarmigans, but they are well camouflaged so you have to have a keen eye!

The snowshoes help you from sinking into the snow, making the hike much easier than it would have otherwise been.

The ptarmigans figured that out long ago and will actually grow feathers on their feet come winter. These feathers create natural insulation as well as a much bigger foot to spread the pressure over a bigger surface area, keeping them from sinking into the snow.

The guide knows the terrain like the inside of his own pocket and will lead you out to some wonderful viewpoints where you’ll have an opportunity to take amazing winter landscape photos. Once halfway, the guide will bring out a thermos so you can enjoy a cup of coffee or tea and warm yourself a bit as the guide tells stories about the area. If this sounds like just the tour for you then go ahead and press ‘choose a date’ to find a day that suits you!
