Icebergs • northern lights • Inuit settlements
This active trip to South Greenland takes you beyond the Arctic frontier to discover the Inuit people's home with their traditional lifestyle and ongoing adaptation to an icy and often harsh environment. On this trip, featuring a helicopter ride over the Inland Ice Cap, a very special ice crampon hike on one of the oldest ice fields on the planet, small ship boating among fjords, and interesting tundra hiking in beautiful valleys, gain firsthand knowledge of the Inuits' home, the history of the first European settlers, and the many outstanding natural features of this unique and seldom-visited land. Nowhere is the impact of global warming more evident; your trip will include direct observation the evidence.
A short trip (three hours by air) separates Iceland, a well-known natural enclave, from Greenland, largest island in the world. Here, where roads are rare and nature is practically untouched, your exceptional exploration awaits.
Take spectacular treks through the tundra and in glacier valleys, see herds of caribou and marine fauna, gather mushrooms and cranberries, and visit geothermal hot springs. On starry nights, enjoy the awe-inspiring show of the northern lights.
“We saw over 500 icebergs — most impressive! Magical — as big as apartment houses.” ~Bertram & Renee Koel "One hundred miles of non-stop beauty, especially in the light of the midnight sun." ~Alicia and Matthew Tether
