Sarfannguit – a village on the ACT

Posted on May 6 by

Roughly two thirds of the way from Kangerlussuaq towards Sisimiut is the settlement of Sarfannguit, a classic trail town where hikers can rest their feet for a day or two while enjoying the life of a small Greenlandic settlement.

Short films from the trail

Watch how various hikers have filmed their journey on the ACT.

The hike is a 160 km adventure right above the Arctic Circle in western Greenland, and during the Winter time the trail can be skied, snowshoed, dogsledded or snowmobiled – depending on how you fancy your Arctic journey.

Summer nights in the backcountry

Posted on May 6 by

One of the lesser travelled routes in the Sisimiut-Kangerlussuaq backcountry is the trail between Akulliup Qinngua and Kangerlussuaq.

The Western trailhead is roughly 25 kilometers East of Sarfannguit, and if you begin your hike here there is only the mesmerizing silence of hiking in the Arctic, the sound of your feet, and the Midnight sun for the first day before you hook up with the main ACT.
