Photogenic tour

This is a tour where will only be sleeping in tents in a basecamp that lies very close to the Greenland Ice Cap.

From Kangerlussuaq Airport we will grab a taxi and drive all the way in close to the Ice Cap. Here awaits our tent camp.

From our basecamp we will do day excursions to experience the nearby amazing nature that Greenlands has to offer.

This trip is for those who wants to experience the beautiful nature of Greenland by hiking and sleeping in tents.
This trip is based on having a "basecamp", meaning our tent camp will be standing in the same spot for the whole duration of this tour.

This enables us to do several day excursions with a light backpack!

ITINERARY

The first day we will do a hike that leads us to many places that are incredible spectacular. At the same time we will be scouting for any wildlife that might be in the area.

The second day we will be putting on crampons and harness and explore the amazing Greenland Ice sheet.

The third day we will be spent with either doing another day exploring the Ice Cap, or doing another day hunting for spectacular views and wildlife spotting. This will be decided based upon the wishes of the group.

In the afternoon/evening on the third day we will take a taxi back to Kangerlussuaq Airport where you will be accomodated in a shared dormitory for one night. During the evening we will be eating a better dinner together for those who wishes.
