NEW: Celebrate the New Year in Sisimiut - The Land of Northern Lights and Winter
Sometimes it is great to get away from it all and have someone to take care of you. Try something else and get a lot of awesome experiences! Our active New Year’s trip to Sisimiut gives you these opportunities.
Sisimiut is Greenland's second largest town, with a breathtaking hinterland, where all snow and ice disciplines can be experienced. Skiing, snowmobiling, dog sledding, snowshoeing, sledding, and rolling downhill are just some of the things that you can do. You can also make angels in the snow while you lie on your back and look up at the northern lights. You can also go ice fishing - and afterwards, you can go home to Hotel Sisimiut, put on your swimsuit and sit down in a hot tub on the terrace and look at the snow and mountains that surround the city.
New Year’s Eve in Greenland
The New Year is celebrated twice in Greenland. The New Year's Eve menu is planned so that after the appetizer you put on your warm clothes, and then we drive to the top of a hill to see the Danish New Year celebrated at 8 PM. Afterwards, we return to the lovely dinner and then we celebrate the "real" New Year Eve at the hotel at midnight.
Winter in Greenland
As with many of our trips, we have put together an excursion package that will give you all the experiences that are just right for the season. There are lots of winter activities in our excursion package, so the whole family or you and your spouse or partner can have some great experiences together.
You will be staying just above the Arctic Circle, so do not count on glorious sunshine 24/7! In fact, the sun is only in the sky a few hours a day at this time of year. But don’t worry; that does not mean that it’s dark the rest of the time. The snow and street lights light up the place, so there is a cozy twilight mood during the rest of the day.
