Sisimiut

Sisimiut lies immediately north of the Arctic Circle and is the northernmost town in Greenland with an ice-free harbour in the winter, while at the same time the southernmost town in West Greenland, where in winter and spring you can go dog sledding.

Coastal gem at the Arctic Circle

Greenland's second largest town, Sisimiut, draws on a rich history of whaling, colonialism and modern Greenlandic town life, which together represent a strong mix of traditional and modern on an urban, arctic scene.

In winter, groups of snowboarders and snowmobile teams mix with dog sled drivers, while the hills and fjords are alive with hikers, mini cruising and visits to settlements in the summer.

Sisimiut is also the base camp for more specialized adventurers, who want to experience arctic diving, river fishing, heliskiing and long trips by dogsled in the wilderness.
