Winter sports and golfing
Nuuk is an excellent winter sports area. Hop on the bus to the airport and, in 15 minutes, you will be at the foot of a ski area with three ski lifts. Skiing and snowboarding are popular sports, just as the sound of snowmobiles is unmistakable outside the city limits. If you are into cross country skiing, there are many good trails starting in the town.
If you come in the summer, you can play on a nine-hole golf course, which has many natural obstacles as it lies in beautifully hilly terrain.
The town of Nuuk
In the eyes of Greenlanders, Nuuk with over 17,500 inhabitants, is a big city. In fact, it takes several hours to go from one end of Nuuk to the other, as the town is growing almost every day. For example, the suburb of Nuussuaq would be Greenland’s second-largest town if it had been a separate town. In Nuussuaq, you find neighborhoods which resemble candy bowls, because there are houses of all colors. You even find pink and mint green homes here…
In the center of Nuuk, you will find the buildings from colonial times. The old colonial area with, among other things, the National Museum is well maintained and beautiful, and you should take a walk in the area Myggedalen and experience the many colorful houses. If you run into a rain shower or a snowstorm, you can go shopping in the nearby Nuuk Center, which has everything. Almost.
