Cultural Historical hike to the Tele island

Travel back in time and experience a place, where people have been living for the last 4.000 years.

Sisimiut is Greenlands next biggest city, beautifully located between the ocean and the tall, steep mountains just north of the arctic circle. In the summer you will experience the eternal summer nights, where the sun never sets.

This tour takes you to the little island Sallinnguit, which in English is called “The Tele Island”, because it is where the modern telecommunications installations are located. This little island has been an attractive place through thousands of years: First for the settlement for different Inuit cultures as the Saqqaq culture, Dorset culture and the Thule people. Today you’ll find the shrimp-peeling factory of Royal Greenland and also historical residential houses from the early industrialized period in Greenland. Sallinnguit is no longer a separate island, it is now connected to the city with a little bridge, as it has been a central part of the development.

This tour will walk you through the area and its history. You will hear the amazing story about the Inuit way of life before the influence of the Europeans. From there, you will further hear about the early days of colonization an the history until today. You will see the ruins from different periods of time and enjoy the view over ancient hunting grounds and the town, where you’ll see the mixture of historical and modern buildings.
