Sisimiut (Holsteinsborg) is Greenland's 2nd-largest city (after country's capital Nuuk), with population around 6,000. It is located in central-western Greenland, approx 320 km (200 ml) north of Nuuk.

Sisimiut (Greenland) cruise port

Sisimiut is country's northernmost port and is ice-free the whole year-round. It is also a major cargo shipping base for west-northwest Greenland. Supply vessels depart from here towards smaller towns in remote regions (like UummannaqUpernavikQaanaaq).

  • This is one of Greenland's fastest growing towns, with principal industry commercial fishing. KNI AS (aka Greenland Trade) and its subsidiary company Pilersuisoq (general stores chain) are based here. The city features communal apartment blocks, modern suburb-style buildings (on Kangerluarsunnguaq Bay), several schools (professional and general), Taseralik Culture Center (country's second - after Nuuk's Katuaq).
  • Sisimiut Airport is served by the domestic airline Air Greenland, which provides connections to towns on the western coast and also to Europe (via Kangerlussuaq).
  • Kangerluarsunnguaq Bay is to the north of Sisimiut. It separates the town from Palasip Qaqqaa Mountain in the north. This bay is navigable and protected. Both the cargo port and the harbor are on the bay's southern shore. There is a 4 km (2,5 ml) long road to the airport, passing through the bridge over the bay. Halfway between the town and the airport there is a small, dark-sand beach.
  • Alanngorsuaq Mountain (highest elevation point 411 m / 1348 ft) is surrounded by several lakes, one of which serves the town as fresh water reservoir. The valley and lakes under the mountain are Sisimiut's primary recreation areas.
  • Nasaasaaq Mountain (highest elevation point 784 m / 2572 ft) is to the southeast of the town.

Sisimiut Greenland was included as port of call in the Northwest Passage cruises of the following passenger ships:
