Greenland Expedition

From £3235 for 8 days
Trip Overview
There are so few places left on earth that can be described as truly remote and wild, but Greenland is surely one of them. Travel to the world’s largest non-continental island, where fewer than 60,000 people live in the tundra-like environment. Here, icebergs tower instead of skyscrapers and tiny settlements on the coast still rely on subsistence fishing to survive. Hike through boulder-strewn hillside to the ruins of an ancient Paleo-Inuit culture, breathe the purest air imaginable and crane your neck in awe of iceberg giants on this eight-day expedition.

Itinerary & Notes
Welcome to Ilulissat! With fewer than 5000 residents (and about 1500 sled dogs), this is Greenland’s third-largest city, located on famous Disko Bay. The main drawcard here is the spectacular Ilulissat Icefjord, where apartment block-sized icebergs are visible from the shore. Ilulissat actually means 'icebergs', and there is a likelihood that the iceberg that sank the Titanic came from here. Your tour kicks off with a welcome meeting at 6 pm, when you can get to know your fellow explorers and tour leader.
