Description

Join a hike into the vast and breathtaking landscape of Kangerlussuaq. As the rugged terrain homes the arctic wildlife, you don’t have to venture for long to spot or hear the many animals wandering the desert valleys and hillsides. Much in Greenland is worth exploring, but for wildlife it does not get better than this.

Greenland covers an area of 2.184.700, making it the world biggest island. Approximately 8.000 square kilometers of that land, is Kangerlussuaq. The place of a massive size is a wonderland for every explorer. For hiking enthusiasts, this is the perfect playground not only to conquer mountain tops, but also to witness the arctic animals living in their natural habitat. We promise the breathtaking landscapes becomes even more magnificent when encountering wildlife.

Scout for the birds above you and see if you can spot the great white tailed eagle, a huge bird that has a wingspan up to a little over 2 meters. Seeing this beauty gliding above you is a mesmerizing sight. On ground, you will come across arctic rabbits, foxes, and the larger mammal’s of caribou and musk ox. Many travel to Kangerlussuaq to witness the majestic musk ox, that thrives in these parts of Greenland. These giants can weigh up to 400 kilos and can be witnessed from a good distance, they are not dangerous. But these massive mammals will charge, if they feel threatened or you have entered their territory. Rest assured, this will not be a problem as you will be joined by an experienced guide who knows the signals and whereabouts of the musk ox.
