Great experiences in the Arctic Circle Region

The Arctic Circle region is also known as the polar circle and the middle region, and it holds a wealth of fantastic experiences. Among other things, this is the only place where you will find a way into Greenland’s ice sheet.

The region covers Kangerlussuaq, Sisimiut, Maniitsoq and Kangaatsiaq. Sisimiut is Greenland’s second largest city, and here you can experience, among other things, the Arctic Circle Race, known as the world’s hardest cross-country race.
