Hike to Palasip Qaqqaa
Join a challenging summit hike and be rewarded with an amazing panoramic view!
The Palasip Qaqqaa trail is one of the classic Sisimiut day hikes. From the peak you get a 360-degree view over the sea, fjords, and landscape around the town.
Ascending the summit of this 550 m high mountain near Sisimiut is a challenging hike, but you enjoy spectacular views of the town and sea the whole way. Along the route you see several species of local flora and may encounter foxes, grouse and eagles. Even musk oxen have been observed near the top!
The hike takes you through a surprisingly fertile terrain of bushes, flowers and mosses. Several small waterfalls of clear spring water offer refreshment along the trail. Reaching the top you are rewarded with an amazing view of the town south and the Kangerluarsuk Tulleq Fjord north.
