Sisimiut Snowshoeing adventure

In case you haven’t noticed, I’m a mad, keen hiker 😉 And in the last year I’ve discovered the winter equivalent – snowshoeing!

Snowshoeing into the wilderness

Read more about a relatively short snowshoeing trip I did in February with  Hotel Sisimiut and Tours in my Snowshoing in Sisimiut blog post at Guide to Greenland.

Whale watching in Aasiaat


During Summer, the waters around Greenland are a playground for a large number of whales. Disko Bay, in particular, offers some incredible whale watching experiences, including from the rarely visited town of Aasiaat.

Sisimiut Monster Snowmobile

Having just done my first snowmobile adventure, I discovered that Sisimiut also has monster snowmobiling trips into the backcountry!

These are a little more sedate and definitely a lot warmer than the typical snowmobile tour!

Million thanks to the Hotel Sisimiut and Tours for the experience.

Hotel Sisimiut’s Arctic Spa

I hadn’t walked the Arctic Circle Trail again. But that didn’t stop me from indulging in an Arctic Spa experience at the Hotel Sisimiut on my most recent visit.

In addition to the sauna that I so enjoyed last time, their hot-tubs (called “Wilderness Baths” were also finished and ready for me to soak in. I couldn’t wait to try it!

Million thanks to the Hotel Sisimiut for the experience.

Snowmobiling adventure in Sisimiut

Given I’m a bit of an adrenaline junkie, I’d always been curious to try snowmobiling. I had my first chance to do so earlier this year when I was up in Sisimiut to learn Greenlandic at KTI’s Oqaatsinik Pikkorissaavik (language school).

Million thanks to Magnus at the Hotel Sisimiut Seamen’s Home for the tour!
