Full Day Snowshoe Adventure | Nuuk
Want an extended snowshoe hike that will give you a real workout? Head out to a little-visited but stunning viewpoint on this full-day excursion near Nuuk.
Most snowshoeing adventures around Nuuk take place on Quassussuaq, otherwise known as Lille Malene. This one is different and takes you further afield to an amazing viewpoint known to the locals only as “The View”.
It is a steady incline the whole way, and you must be prepared to exert some energy! But with every step, the vistas become more and more incredible, distracting you from the hard work you are putting in. Your experienced wilderness guide will keep an eye out for arctic wildlife and explain the features of the landscape as you hike, and there will be plenty of opportunities to rest and take photos along the way.
The climb finishes at a sheer drop that plunges 760m back down to the fjord. It is a thrilling place to stand with beautiful 360 degrees views over the mountains and the Nuuk Fjord system. There you will build a bench in the show so that you can sit and enjoy the view while sipping hot coffee or tea and indulging in some Greenlandic delicacies.

What to bring
- Fill your water bottle with warm water so that it won't freeze during the tour.
- Bring a sandwich and/or snacks for yourself to keep your energy up.

Ideally, you should dress in layers: at least one thermal underwear layer (top and bottom), activity layer (e.g. hiking pants and shirt), and insulation layer (e.g. fleece or down jacket). The outer layer must be proper winter gear which typically has lots of insulation and is windproof. Think ski jacket and pants if you come from a warmer climate.
- A warm hat, thick windproof gloves, buff or scarf
- Insulated winter boots
- Sunglasses and sunscreen - snow is very bright and even the winter sun can cause sunburn
- Camera with extra batteries (the cold drains the batteries faster)

Mette H –
I had the perfect and most beautiful day to Udsigten/The View yesterday. We couldnt have asked for better weather – so stunning and great for hiking. It was hard work at times – but so rewarding and worth the effort. Thank you to Thorlak, the guide from Two Raven, and Gandhi for guiding me to the top – and safely down again 🙂 – for helping me with the snow-shoes and for sharing stories. Thank you to Lasse from Guide to Greenland for making sure the trip was a, for the company and I look forward to see the photos and relive the hike :). Thank you for answering all my questions (and quickly) leading up to this trip. I’ll happilly book through Guide to Greenland again and join an excursion by Two Ravens.
All the best, Mette
