The newest members of the Sissimiut dog sled team
This morning we stop in Sisimiut, a picturesque village of colorful homes scattered on the hillside over the town. We walk around the town and visit the sled dogs that are housed just outside the town. I stop by the post office and spend a small fortune ($15) for two postcards and stamps.
Exploring Sisimiut on our Arctic cruise
This afternoon we visit a mostly abandoned fishing station, a scenic island with bright red church and crumbling outer buildings. Locals rent space for their own weekend fishing adventures.
Charming Sisimiut, Greenland - traditional fishing village
The ship staff buy several kilos of trout from the locals for tomorrow night’s dinner. We see a group of local kids playing who are surprised to see a boatload of travelers exploring their island playground. Our onboard painters bring their acrylics and relax on the hillside, capturing the pastels of this lovely island as the kids look on.
