The Arctic Circle Trail is unusual in that it is mostly along a trodden path from start to finish, equipped with basic huts at regular intervals and ‘wild’ tent pitches wherever you can find a suitable space on the ground.
Anyone taking advantage of all the huts will spend nine days on the trail. The distance can be extended to run all the way from the ice cap to Sisimiut.
The Arctic Circle Trail is very remote, with few other hikers on the trail, so it is not recommended for a first-time hiker, but it suitable for anyone who has previous experience of being self-sufficient for several days on a trail.
Trekking in Greenland offers all the information experienced hikers will need to walk this waymarked route.
- includes an optional extension to the ice cap and ascent of two nearby summits
- illustrated with detailed HARVEY map extracts and colour photography
- with town plans of Sisimiut and Kangerlussuaq
