Arctic Circle Trail, Greenland

… 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.

This splendid backpacking route, lying 25-30 miles north of the Arctic Circle runs from Kangerlussuaq to Sisimiut – both with airport access.

a summer walk, ideally from mid-June to mid-September, when the tundra is bursting with life; during the long winter, snow and ice, short days and bitter cold are the norm …

  1. Summer 2017, I kayaked along a Norwegian fjord. My flight back to the US went over the southern tip of Greenland. The breathtaking view inspired me to seek out an adventure on the island. Had it been cloudy during that flight, I would never have hiked the Arctic Circle Trail in the late summer of 2018.
    I occasionally cursed the boggy stretches (I felt waders would have been better than gaiters), but would not change anything. The views were heart-wrenchingly beautiful and the scale was mind-boggling — geologic formations that looked to be a mile or so away would take more than an hour to reach.
