Sermermiut Walk,
Our forefathers land

Sermermiut area is very important for the local people. We used to celebrate the Greenland National Day on 21st of June in the area. It also used to be a hunting place for grouse birds untill few years ago. The flora is still one of most important places for us, because of the black and blue berries in the summertime. The berries are the only natural fruits we have in Greenland.
