Go on this adventurous excursion to Point 660, from where you will be heading out onto the Greenland Ice sheet! It is a daring adventure amongst valleys of melted ice water, crevasses, crystal clear lakes, waterfalls, and rivers - an adventure of a lifetime. 

The tour starts, from your selected pickup-point. To venture onto the Ice sheet, crampons and walking poles are required and provided. Anyone willing to hike for three to four hours is welcome to join this trip. You will start with a short briefing of your tour and introduction to the safety equipment. Right after the briefing has taken place, you'll step into our specially adapted 4WD vehicle with panoramic windows, so you can enjoy the views while driving into the wild backcountry. It takes about an hour to get to point 660, and this drive is quite unique as this is not possible anywhere else in Greenland.

On the hike, you will, along with a group, find a suitable place to stop and enjoy your packed lunch with an immense view of the Arctic desert. On this tour, there are chances of spotting wildlife of all sorts, such as reindeer, musk oxen, arctic hares, and polar foxes and many different species of birds and a variety of flowers. 

Trekking boots are a must, as you have to be able to wear the crampons and a breathable jacket is preferable.

Very good trip! The full day adventure is more value for money than the ordinary trip to the inland ice and Point 66 as you actually spend 3 - 4 hours on the inland ice walking around in crampons which is an experience of itself if you have never used crampons before:) Excellent weather when we did the tour and very good sandwich for lunch included in the price!
