> Arctic Circle Trail
ACT is a famous trekking route in West Greenland between the international airport Kangerlussuaq and the town of Sisimiut on the coast. The trail covers a distance of approx. 160 km, the difficulty level is Moderate. The landscape consists of soft mountains, lakes and fjords. Most mountains along the route is between 300 and 1000 meters.Â
> South Greenland Trails
SGT are located in the area between the international airport at Narsarsuaq and the town of Narsaq. The area is known for its Viking ruins. The father of Leif Eriksson (who discovered North America around 1000 BC), Erik The Red, colonized the area around 985 BC with other Vikings from Iceland. They settled in what today is the Inuit settlement of Qassiarsuk (then 'Bratthalid') which is on the trail. There you can, among other things, see the reproduction ofÂ Thjodhild's church and a Viking house in an area with several Viking ruins.Â
Several sheep farms are scattered around in the area and the climate in the fjords is mild and the much lusher than the rest of Greenland with grass fields, bushes and a few trees here and there. The landscape on the firstÂ stretch is almost flat, but when approaching Narsaq the terrain gets more mountainous and the nearby peaks rise up to 1700 meters.
