The Ammassalik region is one of the most isolated inhabited region on the planet. Mountains, icebergs, huge glaciers and rivers form the beautiful landscape we will explore. We will stay at a mountain hut at the incredible Sermilik ice fjord and enjoy the view of the spectacular icebergs in the sea. We will visit three isolated villages with colourful houses, friendly people and howling sled dogs and spend the nights in the middle of the settlements. This is an unforgettable tour for those who want an insight into life in this remote part of the world, who enjoy relatively easy hikes in beautiful nature and prefer inside accommodation.

Our hike to Illitsiartik in the fjord of Tuno will be relatively easy, but we will have to ford a river or two on the way. The vegetation here is surprisingly rich and the scenery absolutely stunning. We will spend the night in Kuummiut.

Day 5: Mt. Kuummiut

Today we will climb Kuummiut Mountain (1050 m). The altitude is quite modest, but we have to start from sea level which makes this a full day hike.

We will spend the following two night in a hut on the Ammassalik island with a stunning view of the fjord. We will spend the afternoon exploring the area and enjoying the spectacular view.

Day 7: Sermilik Fjord

Today we hike for an entire day in this remote area. We hike along streams, over barren, rocky land, enjoying the fantastic view over the Sermilik ice fjord along the way. If the weather conditions are good, we can see the great Greenlandic ice cap. We will spend the night in the hut.

Day 8: Sermilik Path - Tasiilaq

We start the day with a short boat transfer further south along the Ammassailik island.

We will spend the following two nights in a house in the settlement.

Day 9: Tasiilaq – Prestefjeld

Today the choice is yours. For those who want to go for a hike in the surroundings of Tasiilaq this will be an option. When back in Tasiilaq we can stroll around the town, visit possibly the local museum (depending on opening hours) or the local shop with artistic local products.
