Description

Tie your hiking boots and come along, this beautiful hike to Lake Circus! This 2-hour hiking tour gives you a taste of the Greenlandic scenery and what it has to offer. With this tour, you can choose between hiking around the lake, or exploring the Greenlandic fauna on the plateau.

You will be picked up at Hotel Hans Egede, from where your out-of-town adventure starts. We head out of Nuuk and into Qinngorput.  From Qinngorput, the new part of town, we will walk up to the plateau near “Store Malene” and enjoy the amazing views over Nuuk City, Cook Islands and the Davis Strait. This is just an appetizer of the next two hours!

As we ascend towards the plateau, we will be walking on an uneven, rocky path, following a large river. The river branches in all directions, and surrounding it are vigorous mountainsides. When we have reached the plateau, depending on what you want to do, we can either cross the river and follow a dirt road, that will takes us through the mountainy landscape and all around the lake, or we can explore the Greenlandic flora without exertion. 

If we hike around the lake, we will pass by the numerous rivers and a stunning waterfall. The lake is circumscribed by mountainsides, resembling an asteroid crater, a quite unique sight. During the summer it will be possible to pick berries, mushrooms and other Greenlandic provisions, your guide will tell you everything about Greenlandic flora and fauna. We will offer you Greenlandic snacks and a cup of tea or coffee.

This tour is suitable for families with children.
