A track along the coast of the lake turns into a smooth walk across a valley and meets another lake. The track then ascends with some small, yet sharp parts and joins rocky mountains. The course ripples along while passing a number of small lakes. Total distance 22km.
Exit the Canoe Centre and hike along the bay of Amitsorsuaq. On either side of the path, there are lakes, one is small and the other is relatively big. If the weather permits, you would be able to see the noticeable mountain of Pingup Sallia. Towards the end of the lake, the track bypasses a canoe frame. The lake in this part has a lot of rocks emerging from under the shallow water. It offers a beautiful image. (If someone has been traveling in a canoe untill the western end of the lake, they are advised to abandon it at this point. The canoe should be pulled out of the water, turned upside down and placed on the canoe frame. Tie the lifejackets and paddles properly, so others can use them conveniently.
Go along the river running downstream. The Arctic Circle Trail first intersects the river, surpasses several noticeable markers on a rocky elevation and then intersects the river once more. Keeping left of the river, hikers have tramped over the land to create a new track. Following this track means you don’t even have to cross the river. However, you do have to past through a marshy land. You can take this treaded path and mainly just follow the river. Slowly the distance between the path and the river increases. Look out for markers if the track is not very clear. Down near the lake, there is a breath-taking sight with mountains in the distance. You will pass vegetation grown over what was once a muddy land. There are, however, some marshy sections in between. The track changes dramatically with several little ups and downs but overall it is headed downwards towards a lake. Near the end, it passes a stony heap with broken shells. Towards the east, you will notice an eye-catching summit with a stony look, which is of about 360m.
Take a left turn to go along the track which goes above the coast of Lake Kangerluatsiarsuaq. The track rises gradually but could go a little off course on the climb. It goes through an opening along a low gravelly mount. At this point, a headland projects out into the lake. The map shows this as a tent pitch. On the other side, decline sharply downwards to reach an extensively sandy shore. If the sun is out, this place looks extremely beautiful. The shore steadily enters the water. It forms a straight edge, successfully blocking a little pool of water. Interestingly, the lake level at this point is roughly 25m. above sea level. Mount Pingu can be seen towards the north.
If you go from behind the pool, you will see an unclear track. A relatively more proper track climbs up later, which passes markers on a noticeable large rock, lying above a green slope. At the front, you will see three rocky cliffs. The track continues to go over the first of these cliffs. It is low-rising and simple having an old solidified muddy land past it. The track over the remaining two cliffs is short, sharp and rocky. The slope simplifies later and the track ripples through a scenery of rocky ups and downs. The place offers stunning sights of Lake Kangerluatsiarsuaq and of Lake Tasersuaq which at times gives an impression that it’s made up of three separate lakes. Nearer to you would be little, no so deep mountain lakes. A few of these lakes mostly dry up during the summer season. The height is almost 350 m. near a gradient of exposed rock. If the weather is hazy, you should remain alert and look out for the path and the markers.
The path then slowly goes downhill and enters a valley which has a number of little lakes, joined together. However, these are slightly larger than the lakes crossed at other places on the way while passing through the hummocky mountain range. While facing the beginning of the lake, where there is a wide, rocky space, you may be able to see Ikkarluttooq Hut. No doubt, it is difficult to see from a distance. But if you keep going on the tramped track, you will eventually reach it.0
