Sending gear to the other end of the trail
If you are travelling with things you don’t want to take on the hike, you have three options:
- Arrange to leave it at your accommodation if you are returning later in your trip (most common if you are starting from Kangerlussuaq)
- Send a package to the other end of the trail. To do this, simply visit the Post Office (Tusass) in either Kangerlussuaq or Sisimiut and post it. It will usually arrive a few days before you do and you can pick it up once you arrive. It may also be possible to arrange with your accommodation to pick it up for you.
- Leave it in one of the storage lockers in the airport terminal. Current cost: 200DKK deposit + 40DKK per day to store.
Enter the weight of your package in this online calculator for an idea on how much it will cost.
You need to choose Priority A as there are no ships between Kangerlussuaq and Sisimiut.
Please check the opening hours of the Post Office here.
If you wish to leave your bag in Kangerlussuaq for a shorter period of time, there are lockers available for hire at the airport.
