Sending gear on

Sending gear to the other end of the trail

The Post Office and telecommunications company in Greenland is called Tusass. You can send gear to the other end of the trail here

If you are travelling with things you don’t want to take on the hike, you have three options:

  1. Arrange to leave it at your accommodation if you are returning later in your trip (most common if you are starting from Kangerlussuaq)
  2. 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.
  3. Leave it in one of the storage lockers in the airport terminal. Note: in February 2024, it appears you can only leave luggage in these lockers for 24 hours.

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.
