Sisimiut is often referred to as Greenland’s Adventure hub! No matter the season, you will find a wide variety of exciting adventures for active travelers. In fact, adventure here is a way of life! You will see locals jumping on snowmobiles, dog-sleds, or bikes (depending on the season) to enjoy the expansive natural playground and we encourage you to join them! One thing is mandatory though: you must love the outdoor life. Whether you are hiking in the mountains, enjoying a mini-cruise crossing the Arctic Circle, participating in the age old tradition of dog sledding, feeling the freedom on the mountain safari or being mesmerized by the Northern Lights – unforgettable encounters with the Arctic await you. Sisimiut in winter is white snow and bright lights – Northern Lights that is.See more
