Assaqutaq Trail Transfer | Sisimiut

Take a boat ride to the abandoned settlement of Assaqutaq. We’ll sail past a dog island where sledge dogs roam free during the summers, and into the fjord where humpbacks and fin whales can often be seen.Assaqutaq was closed down in the 70’s but still keeps its charm, and is often visited by locals over the summer. Located on the southern side of the Nasaasaq mountain you’ll have an ocean view the whole hike back.Before heading your way back home, take your time to explore the old buildings and get a feel of what life was like during simpler times.The area is abundant in wildlife and flora, you can find schools of capelin and ptarmigans hiding in the small valleys where the national flower blooms in bright pink and even in white colours.As the village is located on a small island, you have to cross a small hanger bridge to get back to the mainland and beware of the tide as the last few meters between the mainland and the island are below water at high tide.The hike will take you past an old burial site, please be careful not to disturb the site and accidentally move the rocks.Here lie the former inhabitants of the settlement, buried in rock piles to protect them from animals, and with a traditional ocean view. The deep ocean was believed to be where heaven was because of its abundance of prey whereas the idea of heaven in the sky was ridiculous.The hike goes up and down the mountainside, so be prepared to go up and down a few large boulders, which just adds to the fun.

Northern lights hike | Uummannaq

Go on a northern lights hike and experience the magic of the night and the waving lights. This tour is for everyone who wishes to see the lights and learn more about them. 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.
