We end Arne and Stefan’s epic winter journey with the heartwarming tale of settlement adventures in the village of Kangaamiut. A truly unique insight into everyday life in the Arctic.
This time we mean business!
Arne and Stefan head into the huge, rugged Eternity Fiord backcountry for an epic day of peak to beach heliboarding and heliskiing. Truly inspiring stuff!
Arne and Stefan hook up with the Støvlbæk Brothers snowmobiling crew for an epic day of riding in the huge Sisimiut backcountry.
The Arctic is more than deep backcountry and fierce outback, it is also vibrant, urban towns with street culture, art, and playful kids. In the “Urban Arctic” episode Arne and Stefan explore everyday life in Sisimiut, Greenland’s second largest town.
Arne and Stefan continue their exploration of Winter adventures along Greenland’s Arctic Circle and this time they meet 17 year old Mia and 70 year old Marius Olsen for a journey into the heart of dogsledding.
Head up from Nuuk to Maniitsoq on a weekend getaway and get up close and personal with playful humpback whales, visit large bird colonies, or explore the cosy town of Maniitsoq.
If you’re already in Nuuk, why not treat yourself to a couple of adventurous days in Greenland’s second largest town, Sisimiut.
Looking for angler’s paradise? Well, you might just have found it 30 miles south of Maniitsoq on the Qoqqut river where we have our fishing camp with two comfortable backcountry cabins.
Angling for Arctic charr in our rivers means exclusive fishing in pristine rivers on a backdrop of rugged peaks. This is one-in-a-lifetime angling, and when you reach the river and land your first catch you’ll understand why.
From Sisimiut we do one day trips to the alpine mountains northeast of town where a small glacier and a number of steep slopes are available. Or we can step things up a notch and head down to the rugged Itilleq mountains.
On this trip we drive to the harbour, and from there walk out on the thick Kangerlussuaq fiord ice to a good fishing spot.
For that ultimate angling and hunting combo we take you on an 8 day adventure into the heart of the best hunting grounds in the country, looking for musk oxen, and fishing for Arctic charr.
When the Arctic charr swims up the Robinson River from mid-July angling in this Greenlandic river begins, and we reach a peak of the season in August when the fish have an average wight of 1-2 kilos.
Angling for arctic charr on remote river stretches is quickly becoming one of our best products, and Destination Arctic Circle has established as the prime angling spot in Greenland with a number of great destinations. South of Maniitsoq two companies operate river angling on the Kangia and Qoqqut rivers, and local charter boats make sure the trip is a journey in itself through the archipelago. Around Sisimiut rivers are accessible by boat as well, and there are destinations both North and South of town, with the Southern rivers being nothing short of the best angling spots in the entire country.
