A must go place - a very easy walk from old heliport (or with 500m more from city center). Easy wood walk. Indeed no real notion of old village. You go there for the view any time of day- I went there several time on...More

There is a path which starts about a mile from here (just past the area prison) which the intersects with Sermermiut and adds almost two hours to the adventure. The walk on the boardwalk seems like a stroll in the park at that point but...More

The abandoned village of Sermermiut itself is, frankly, not very impressive, not well interpreted, and most of it is out of bounds anyway. However the circular route that incorporates it is spectacular, and not too challenging for a reasonably fit adult or teenager. I would...More

The last activity we had while in Greenland for a short trip was the hike to Sermermiut. I am teacher and honestly don't get out much during the academic year. So, this hike was a bit challenging at times. The most difficult part was actually...More

This is a great tour along a boardwalk to the head of the fjord. The icebergs that we saw along with the local plant and wildlife was amazing. If you are not overly fit or cannot walk long distances than this is not an adventure...More

You'll find this place on the boardwalk route to the icefjord from Illulissat. While it could do with a bit more info about the ancient settlement itself, it's a lovely setting worth pausing at. In doing so, I saw some whales out at sea, so...More

I was in Greenland for about 10 days, and did the Sermermiut path every day (on one day, I did it at the morning and towards sunset). It's easy, and once you cross over into the area designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, you...More

An abandoned village from the 19th century and earlier with little still visible of the ruined habitations. The site is crossed by a boardwalk giving good access while preserving the fragile Arctic habitat which is quite lush in this sheltered valley. The site is within...More

This is perhaps the best place to view the iceberg in Ilulissat. It is within walking distance from the town Centre. At the end of the wooden path, you will see a magnificent view which you will never forget in your life.
