Glacier Aqqutikitsoq

The best snowmobile area in Greenland.

Experience the landscapes of the glaciers and the deep fjords which are the trademarks for the city of Sisimiut.

On this trip, we’ll drive through the highlands east of Sisimiut. Here we’ll pass the town’s ski area and drive to witness the outlook of 1st fjord “Kangerluarsuk Tulleq” where there will be a brief photo stop. After a steep descent and some slightly technical turns, we’ll reach the fjord ice and then drive north towards the mountain top that is 1,6 km (1 mile) above the level of the fjord.

On the northside of the fjord we’ll pass some huts in varied colours, exactly like in Sisimiut. These huts are private and are used as vacation houses and weekend places, and are used all year. The tour will mainly go uphill, until we’ll reach a plateau, from which the trip will go east through the valleys with some more challenging and slightly difficult paths. These paths will lead to an overpass, where we will pass the last mountain top, before arriving to the glacier.

All of the difficulties will be rewarded, because past the mountain top, a giant soft cover of white and smooth snow and ice, will appear. We’ll drive northwest, through the magnificent snowmasses, to some ski-huts located beneath the rock sills at the glaciers west end. From here the view of the white blanket is fantastic.

The packed lunch is going to be eaten near the ski-huts , and perhaps we’ll have a cup of tea or coffee. Afterwards we’ll enjoy the view one last time before heading home. On our way down the mountains, towards the fjord Kangerluarsuk Tulleq, will we once again witness a great view. On clear days, we’ll be able to see the sea west of the Greenlandic coast.

The trip back to Sisimiut will be the same way in which we came from. This time we will have a great view of the mountains and the sea, which once again is quite staggering, beautiful and confirms how small we are in comparison with this big country.
