Greenland - The Arctic CircleTrail

The Arctic Circle Trail (or ACT) in Western Greenland is a wonderful and very special remote trekking experience. The trail offers the opportunity to experience Greenland (in summer) at its very best. Over the course of its 165km, the trail weaves its way through magnificent terrain between Kangerlussuaq near the inland icecap and the coastal town of Sisimiut. Making the most of the short arctic summer, plants abound to produce a stunning backdrop of ever changing colour and variety.

As well as the stunning vistas, there are opportunities to spot wildlife including arctic hare and fox, caribou, muskox, birds of prey and waterfowl. Trekking food can be supplemented on the trail with wild berries, mussels, cod and arctic char which are bountiful and easily caught from rivers using simple line and spinners.
