The Ridge

One last hurrah. After gorging ourselves on a Greenlandic buffet at Hotel Narsarsuaq last night, we needed to work off some of the salmon, so we all headed up towards Hospital Valley again and branched onto The Ridge hike. A short (3 hours round trip is a very comfortable pace) walk to the top of a 163 metre ridge gives views of the Flower Valley and Kiattuut Sermiat (AKA ‘the Narsarsuaq Glacier’). The bugs were back out in full force, and we were happy to check out the Narsarsuaq Museum before boarding our flight back to Reykjavik.

You'll spend more time treading pavement on this walk than trail, but it still worth the view if you're short on time
