Greenland Trekking, Hiking and Walking Holidays

Greenland

1.) The Iceberg Trail

A journey within the rugged east coast mountains, where steep - sided peaks are divided by deep, narrow, iceberg laden fjords. We backpack (with food drops every few days) along the coastline, over ridges and climb peaks offering incomparable views of the inland ice and the mountainous coastline stretching beyond the Arctic Circle.

From the village of Kulusuk a boat drops us at the head of a narrow fjord. We walk west towards the iceberg packed Sermilik Fjord, and camp close to its shore. Over two days we follow a broad ridge at 400m where with fjords, mountains and the icecap on all sides, it feels like walking along 'the roof of the world'.

We descend to a remote village and cross to Ammassalik Island on a fishing boat. After two strenuous mountain days we reach a lake system, where there is time to rest. From a final high point endless ranges of coastal mountains are revealed, along with giant icebergs within the polar stream, hugging the east coast.

“The stunning and unending beauty of Greenland, in all its variety – and the physical effort required to get to it and through it. There wasn’t a day without exhilirating sights, both panoramas and small particulars.”
