Jens-Pavia Brandt has a passion for exploring the vast backcountry around Kangerlussuaq by foot and kayak, and this love for the natural environment is the backbone of all the adventures offered by his company Greenland Outdoors.
In the summer of 2012 Sisimiut Museum and Destination Arctic Circle present a living exhibition of contemporary art at Sisimiut Museum.
See photos from the final day of the 2012 Arctic Circle Race in Sisimiut.
See the roundup of photos from Day 2 of the Arctic Circle Race 2012.
Meet 21 year old Emilie Olsen and her three brothers Aka (13), Salik (15), and Aqqaluartaa (20) from Sisimiut, who literally grew up wearing skis.
Heliskiing guide Arne shows snowboarding legend Stefan Gimpl how to make ‘Greenlandic coffee’ – a Greenlandic signature drink where each ingredient represents different elements of Greenland. And it tastes awfully good!
Enjoy a bunch of photos from our extended photo coverage of this year’s edition of the world’s toughest ski race.
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.
Join Greenland Outdoors on a very special kind of guided musk ox safari, where we hike into the heartland of the grazing areas and spend two nights in the 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.
The Arctic Circle Trail from Kangerlussuaq to Sisimiut is the classic 165 km Greenland traverse from the Ice Cap all the way to the coast.
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.
Hear the story of the life of the Inuit before the advent of the Europeans, and of life in the early days of colonization. See old ruins and enjoy the beautiful views over the town and the ancient hunting grounds.
Hiking up Palasip Qaqqaa is an experience for all your senses: Enjoy the view of the green mountains, the clear air, and the taste of pure spring water. And on the top you’ll get 360 degree views of the world around you.
By car or bus we head for Tacan, the mountain south of Kangerlussuaq, and enjoy the fantastic view. From up here we hike to Garnet Rock where we hunt for semi-precious stones, look for wildlife and enjoy a lunch break.
In early July when the Summer is still only catching on we paddle along the exciting coastline of the Kangerlussuaq fiord till we reach the river Angujaartorfik, also know as the river Robinson where we hike inland.
On this 6 day adventure we visit the Angujaartorfik area with the beautiful Angujaartorfiup Kuua, also known as the Robinson River, before moving on to Tatsip Ataa and Tasersuaq, The Great Lake, at the bottom of the valley.
The Arctic Circle Trail is our crown jewel, and this 160 km hike connects Kangerlussuaq and Sisimiut, making it easily accessible by air from all over the world. Yet it is a true backcountry challenge with only basic huts, and it often goes over trailless terrain. But all over the region hiking is one of our a favorite Summer pastimes, and peakbagging the mountains around Sisimiut is a must for hikers in that area while climbing the hills around Maniitsoq gives you room to breathe in the crisp Arctic air and enjoy the views of the archipelago. Sarfannguit is a chapter of its own, being the only smaller settlement in the region to which you can walk. It sits conveniently on the coastal leg of the Arctic Circle Trail and a local family offers bed & breakfast style accommodation to soothe those blisters and fill bellies with wholesome Greenlandic food.
