Trekking in Greenland
Greenland is the largest island on Earth and one of the most sparsely populated regions on the planet and the bulk of it lies north of the Arctic Circle. At just over 100 miles long, and taking 7 to 10 days to complete, the Arctic Circle Trail crosses the largest ice-free patch of West Greenland and is an excellent way to experience this unique wilderness.
The Arctic Circle Trail is the longest waymarked trail in Greenland, and runs from Kangerlussuaq to Sisimiut – both with airport access. It traverses remote, empty, silent and stunningly scenic arctic tundra. There are excellent opportunities to see animals, birds and wild flowers and enjoy the use of free canoes and simple, free huts for shelter.
This guide offers all the information experienced backpackers will need to walk this waymarked route, with its even spread of free huts (and canoes!) along the way.
