The Icefjord Trail

For the people looking to immerse themselves in the Greenlandic wilderness, with glacier views, wildlife, ice, an adventure well worth it!

This is a multiday hike for those looking to immerse themselves deeply into the Greenlandic wilderness. Our only company will be ourselves and the majestic Greenlandic nature, and perhaps a couple of caribou.

We will camp with views over glaciers and the Icefjord, gather water in streams and rivers along our way and end our hike in the delightful and comfortable surroundings of Camp Kangiusaq where we will have the chance to try our hand at fishing and kayaking or paddleboarding amongst icebergs. It is also possible to extend your stay in the camp.

All meals are included, during the hike and at Camp Kangiusaq


We begin this multiday hike near the small settlement of Kapisillit. We will hike along the Icefjord for 3 days, spending two nights deep in the Greenlandic wilderness before reaching the camp.


Day 1 a relatively easy start. After a scenic boat transfer from Nuuk, we will cross from Kapisillit over to the Icefjord. Staying in fairly flat terrain, we follow the icefjord to our first campsite by a large lake which, on a clear day, has a view over to the deepest glacier in Nuuk fjord.


Day 2 takes us into higher terrain, up to approx. 600m, where we enter a mountain top landscape full of lakes and small hills with numerous viewpoints down to the Icefjord. We will camp at the “Butterfly lake” with a view over the Narsap Sermia Glacier.


Day 3 is the shortest day, with a downhill trail to Camp Kangiusaq where we will sleep in proper beds in large luxury tents, eat food prepared by the camp staff, go kayaking or paddleboarding and try our hand at fishing, or simply rest up in comfort after our hike.


Day 4 we can enjoy our morning in the beautiful surroundings of the camp before we depart back to Nuuk around midday. It’s also possible to extend your stay at the camp.
