About this tour

This trip is defined by the awe-inspiring scenery of Greenland that makes you ooh and ahh. But there's more to this arctic wonderland than fabulous fjords, snow-capped mountains and arctic tundra, the history and culture that's still celebrated here today will be sure to wow you as well. Discover quaint villages where locals remain steadfastly faithful to their hunting and fishing heritage. Get the opportunity to listen to their stories, hear their music, taste their food, learn about their hunting traditions, and perhaps even join a friendly game of soccer. Ohh and the wildlife, did we mention that yet? Fingers crossed the likes of marine mammals such as polar bears and humpbacks will make an appearance if you're lucky!You will be supplied with an expedition parka and waterproof boots that are sturdy and warm. Please see the ‘Packing’ section of the Essential Trip Information for a detailed guide on what to bring with you.You'll regularly board Zodiac boats to explore and search for wildlife. Please be aware it can get very cold and wet on the Zodiacs. Sturdy sea legs are needed for wet and dry landings by Zodiac, and you will hike on steep terrain, snow and other uneven surfaces.The weather plays a pivotal part in this adventure and, although there’s an itinerary in place, there are no guarantees that you’ll be able to do everything that is planned. A level of flexibility and openness to embracing the unexpected are important in expedition travel, especially in such a remote area.
