Explore the fascinating and awe-inspiring Quassussuaq mountain ridge by 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.

Your tour starts at the meeting point on the outskirts of the city, where you will be introduced to your guide and co-hikers. The 5-hour hike starts by the foot of the mountain and takes you 433 meters above sea level. En route, your guide will tell you all about what plants or wildlife you might encounter.

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 meters 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 orange rays of the arctic sun!

    Great hike. Thorlak was a great guide and good to talk to throughout. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t as cooperative, but still saw some great views along the way.
