Greenlandic coffee is like Irish coffee full of alcohol which will warm up your very soul on a cold evening. The same goes with the love story that comes with the making of Greenlandic coffee.We will start the hike by the lake, getting away from the citys’ lightpollution, out here we’ll go in depth about this natural phenomenon, including why you shouldn’t whistle after the lights.

We will tell you all about the lights in both a scientific and cultural perspective, giving you a better understanding of the beauty which fills the polar nights.The winter can be long and dark, but luckily in Uummannaq, the night sky often shares its beauty with Aurora Borealis, otherwise known as northern lights. It is nothing short of a sublime experience when the lights show under a dark starry night with varying colours and strength. The local Inuit have several stories and explanations connected to the lights, one of which tells us that it is our ancestors playing a type of football with a walrus skull with such a powerful force that they emit light. In these modern times, the northern lights are not only a phenomenon in the sky but also a key ingredient in Greenlandic Coffee. Greenlandic coffee is like Irish coffee full of alcohol which will warm up your very soul on a cold evening. The same goes with the love story that comes with the making of Greenlandic coffee.We will start the hike by the lake, getting away from the citys’ lightpollution, out here we’ll go in depth about this natural phenomenon, including why you shouldn’t whistle after the lights. It is a cold pleasure to be outside in the polar nights which is why we will bring hot coffee and tea as well as make Greenlandic coffee for those who wish to taste it (highly recommended).The whole tour takes around 3 hours, so there is plenty of time for talking, hiking, telling stories, admiring and taking photos of the northern lights. It can be difficult to capture the lights with a camera but the guide can help advise with settings so you can immortalize this night.
