    Join me on an 7-day guided trail running trip in the Arctic Circle and enjoy the breathtaking scenery of Greenland’s backcountry!

    Starting from Kangerlussuaq, a settlement in western Greenland, we will run an average of 33 kilometres a day. In 5 days, we will complete the track and arrive in Sisimiut, the second largest city in the country.

    Greenland is an amazing land and a very special place on Earth. It’s definitely a fantastic setting for a trail running adventure!

    During these days, you just need to care about your run and simply enjoy this unique experience, running as a group or at your own pace. Every day our expedition team will set up camp and make sure you have everything you need.

    A tent camp will welcome us after each stage. In the evenings we just relax, rest and exchange experiences with people passionate about nature and running.

    We will run through a wild and magnificent scenery, away from civilisation, with no phones or e-mails, nearly no people and most important, no stress at all!

    As the terrain becomes steeper near the cost, the low Arctic vegetation climbs up the mountains. Along our way, we will come across some clean rivers with pure water and trickles from the rock. They are the perfect opportunity to quench our thirst.

    Also, musk oxen, sea eagles and reindeer may cross our path. There is no danger of coming across a polar bear as they do not get so far inland.

    Most important, you will be in very good hands! Dominiek De Meulemeester is a trail runnning expert and I am an experienced Polar guide. Together we will make sure you enjoy a fantastic experience!

    About the Guide

     
     

    I'm a Belgian polar explorer with thirty years of experience in polar travel and expeditions. I have been to the poles on 34 occasions, for personal or guided expeditions, photo and film productions and lectures aboard polar cruises. I received the title of ‘Master Guide’ in the newly established IPGA platform (International Polar Guides Association). I'm one of only four people to have crossed the complete Arctic Ocean and the Antarctic continent.

    In 2012, together with Sam Deltour, I broke the world record for the longest non-motorised expedition on the South Pole. On skis, and assisted by a kite, we travelled at least 5013km. Today, I happily share my knowledge by giving lectures and guiding aspiring polar explorers in the Arctic regions. I'm the only polar guide who can provide expedition material for twelve expedition members, in the Arctic (Longyearbyen, Spitsbergen) the Antarctic (Wolfs Fang, Queen Maud Land) and also in Kangerlussuaq, Greenland.

    Please get in touch with me if you are interested in the different tours I'm guiding. We are happy to listen to your specific requests and will be happy to introduce you into the wonderful world of Polar Travel.
