Hiking

Wherever your two feet stand, there is a hiking opportunity. Follow the sheep farmers' roads from one farm to the next or go off the beaten track through rough terrain. Those reaching the southern fjords will be delighted to hardly see a soul
the entire time.

There are only two golden rules to hiking in Greenland: leave no trace and please go around the farmers' grass fields.

Safety First

If hiking alone, always tell someone where you are headed and when you expect to complete the route. Follow up with that person to confirm you have reached your destination.

Protect yourself in the unlikely yet unwanted situation of a bear encounter. Take bear spray and flares, and have easy access to any loud noise makers, like your cooking pots.
