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.
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.
Power up and head into the backcountry on a mountainclimb of epic proportions where we ride through valleys, across frozen lakes and fiords before ascending the slopes of Igloo Mountain.
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.
The terrain east of Sisimiut is an ideal playground for snowmobiling and we follow trails for both dogsleds and snowmobiles to a stunning viewpoint overlooking the Kangerluarsuk Tulleq fiord.
Down the Arctic Circle Trail, and 17 kilometers from Sisimiut, is a favorite spot for the locals to stop and enjoy the views of the Kangerluarsuk Tulleq fiord.
Our half day rides take you to either the huts at Narsaq on the shoreline of the Amerloq fiord, or we follow the Arctic Circle Trail towards Kangerlussuaq till we reach the narrow Nerumaq valley.
The Arctic Circle Trail is the gem of the Winter mountains, and we ride half the trail to a sweet spot deep in the backcountry where a large, comfortable hut sits on a rocky outcrop overlooking a frozen lake.
This is a classic sea to summit adventure, and from the rugged hills around Sisimiut we cross into a true alpine zone with jagged peaks and the trail to the Aqqutikitsoq Glacier peak.
The Arctic Circle Trail is the gem of the Winter mountains, and this full day trip is without a doubt our greatest adventure. The route goes along the 160 kilometers of backcountry trails connecting Sisimiut and Kangerlussuaq.
Space is not an issue in Greenland as it is elsewhere in the world, and we have enough terrain to satisfy both hungry trailriders and seasoned boondockers for years. With its wide open backcountry and long trails Sisimiut is the prime spot for snowmobiling anywhere in Greenland. Out here the snow is great, it comes aplenty especially from February till May, and you can always find locals to ride with. And for a truly rugged ride head into the fiords with a charter boat to ride the mountains around Maniitsoq. The steep slopes, jagged peaks, and the Apussuit glacier are remote – but simply out of this world.
