Winter Safari | Sisimiut
The stunning backcountry around Sisimiut is just as beautiful in the Winter/Spring as it is in the Summer/Fall. There are many ways to venture beyond Sisimiut during the colder months, but the most relaxed and accessible is to travel by snow sled.
We will transfer from the meeting point to our unique transportation - a comfortable sleigh that is pulled by a snowmobile. Once seated, we will head out into the vast winter landscape and explore the valleys and mountains that crouch on the doorstep of Greenland’s second-largest city.
In particular, our route takes us past the ski-lift where we have a great view over Sisimiut and the David Straight. But there are also plenty of other photo-worthy stops during our journey. We will also likely come across local people engaging in their favorite winter pastimes of cross-country skiing, dog sledding, and riding snowmobiles, but the area is enormous and you will still feel quite remote and very small within this endless wilderness.
This family-friendly excursion is suitable for all ages and physical ability levels and is also a great idea for social gatherings and smaller groups.
Make sure you dress in the warmest clothing you have (see below for tips), and reserve your place by selecting your date of travel and clicking Book Now.
- Transfer from the hotel
What to bring
- Warm winter wear. 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.
- Sunglasses or goggles
- Camera with extra batteries (the cold drains the batteries faster)
- Sunglasses and sunscreen - snow is very bright and even the winter sun can cause sunburn
- Day pack
- Water bottle
