Greenland’s capital Nuuk is big enough to sport a large street culture scene which adds depth and dimension to everyday life. The city has a young population, and while summer is an obvious season to sport the latest in fashion, put skills to the test at the skatepark, and even go wakeboarding between icebergs in the fiord, there’s a certain flavour to this youth culture in winter.

The skilift in Nuuk is right across the road from the airport, only 10 minutes from the city centre, and if you ever feel like people are missing from town on a weekend in March and April, you know where to find them.
