Nestled just north of Kangerlussuaq, where we took our first steps on Greenland, sits the charming and prosperous hamlet of Sisimiut. The economy there, built on fishing and tourism, was bustling along in the “heat” of summer with construction going like mad and everyone outside working and enjoying the high season. We wandered among homes and businesses in town and took scenic walks to the museums, enjoying classic Greenland scenes complete with sled dogs and a harbor packed with boats. After our afternoon excursions, we were treated to a cultural display of Greenlandic kayak skills just off the stern of the ship.
