Sisimiut AURORA BOREALIS TRAVEL GUIDE

Sisimiut is a town located in western Greenland and 40 km north of the Arctic Circle. The town has approx 5600 residents which actually makes it the second largest town in Greenland after the capital Nuuk.

The name Sisimiut translates to “the people living in a place where there are fox dens”. The surrounding area is a great place to see the Northern Lights.

The northern lights are visible in the sky above Sisimiut from late September to late March. Even though the town is small we recommend going outside of the town for the best Aurora hunting.
