Greenland: Wild Walks
Greenland: Wild Walks
This trip offers varied and dramatic walking within the wild east coast scenery, including with a mini expedition close to the inland ice. We travel by boat through iceberg laden fjords and reach memorable high points with views of the Polar Stream, the icecap and endless arctic peaks.
We start in the village of Tasiilaq, climbing above the town to look down from our first peak to the coastline and polar stream filled with icebergs drifting from frozen arctic seas.
Our boat arrives and we cross a fjord on the lookout for whales to reach a bay filled with icebergs. Heading inland, our first camp is not far away. Nearby is the inland ice; the vast ice sheet extending as far as Greenland's west coast, and the peak behind our camp provides a spectacular view point.
Now moving camp, we backpack for two days through seldom visited country to reach a remote iceberg filled fjord and food cache. With replenished stocks, we spend two more days, climbing high and exploring by the coast.
Our boat returns and we cross the fjord to reach Ammassalik Island and an old dogsled route which leads across the island to our final camp. From a high point above our camp, magnificent views are revealed towards and beyond the Arctic Circle.
