Experience the northern lights even closer from a mountaintop on this evening trip. Geared up with snowshoes and headlamps we will hike up to the summit of Quassussuaq with a height of 430 m, just at the edge of the city. Up here we will be further away from the city lights, which will make the northern light experience brighter in both reality and memory. And it’s not only the northern lights that will illuminate the experience but also seeing the capital of Greenland at night from above.
