More Info

The immense beauty of Greenland belongs to its remote allure and relatively untouched landscape. Infrastructure is minimal, with few or no roads connecting towns and villages. Ferries and boats make transportation and communication between the communities possible. Alternative methods, such as dogsled, can be available with enough snow pack, though hikes may not incorporate this activity into the itinerary.

The bitter cold might hinder hiking treks outside of summer. Prepare for the elements and plan to encounter adverse weather – climate can vary and moves with a swiftness unlike other destinations.

The cultural immersion in native communities is often part of a Greenland expedition as a large percentage of inhabitants are in traditional villages. Combined with the unique flora and fauna of the territory, this can enhance your program tenfold and add to the illustrious experience.
