The 443 m hill Quasussuaq next to Nuuk Airport is a popular hike.
There are several options on how to climb Quasussuaq. My favourite on foot is probably taking the Southwest ridge on the way up and hiking down towards Circussø. That gives you great views over town but also towards Sermitsiaq and the beautiful Godthåbsfjord mountains.
