Are you tough enough to endure a week within almost nomadic conditions but guided by an expert?
I think so. So join HERE!
Have you ever tried to get and prepare your own food? Do you know how to paddle,or is it your passion ?
Then you will love this extreme kayaking trip. Its also fine if you haven’t done it yet. We’ll teach you.
Six days of kayaking, camping, ice bathing in the fjords of Greenland full of icebergs, like this:
We’ll paddle every day when the weather conditions allow it (and mostly it allows it during this period). 25-30 km will be completed per day at a comfortable pace, stopping by a few icebergs. You will have the chance to go for shorter hikes and take some photos from the hillsides, roaming the icelabyrinth. And for the brave ones ice bath will be waiting for them to jump in. We will have a look at the 2,000 km long glacier and the smaller icebergs as they turn over.
The exact route is written together by nature and the tour guide, as it is a routine on a real expedition.
Date of Expedition: 15-24 July, 2021.
