Greenland trails app

This item appears on page 57 of the March 2020 issue.

The Greenland GPS app, available for free for Apple and Android, contains maps and trail guides for the 160-kilometer Arctic Circle Trail (between Kangerlussuaq airport and the town of Sisimiut on the west coast, with lakes, fjords and 300- to 1,000-meter-high mountains) and for trails in the South Greenland Trails area (between the airport at Narsarsuaq and the town of Narsaq, ranging from flat fields to 1,700-meter peaks and featuring Viking ruins).

A phone’s GPS will update the hiker’s progress on the map. Maps, which have info on historic sites and show locations of overnight huts, can be downloaded for offline use.
