This is a Nuuk classic and maybe your entry into the wonderful world of hiking around Nuuk.
In recent years this tour has become even easier as the newly established prison leads to a new road shortening the trip if necessary. Basically, this tour can be done in either direction and I would choose the starting point depending on the time of the day. Morning hikers may enjoy the sun on their way up from the prison side while afternoon hikers may want to start from Qinngorput.
