Hiking around Tasiilaq
There are a number of hiking trails close to the hotel. There are many shorter day hikes, but we can also reserve longer more challenging hikes of you wish. These will bring you to the peaks that overlook the bay and offer spectacular views of the ice floes.
In winter, you must experience Greenland’s traditional mode of transportation. Less noisy and more picturesque than snowmobiles this is the authentic way to get to know Greenland! Spend the day on one, or even several days. On the way, you’ll see ice fishermen and seal hunters and spend your nights in isolated establishments where you can meet the Inuits!
If you’re a speed demon and you want to cover more distance, a snowmobile is the better option. Accompanied by a guide, the Great North will send shivers down your spine!
