This is the wildest and longest expedition that we offer. During these 11 days, you will be out in the wilderness as much as possible, 10 days. This trip combines a glacier traverse of days carrying all gear with you, discovering ice caves, trying ice climbing, hiking unnamed peaks, and enjoying incredible views over hundreds of mountains surrounded by glaciers! The best way to see raw and wild East Greenland!

The first  2-4 days out you will cross glaciers, camp on snow, melting it to cook and reach view point over the entire valley and pitch the tent between colorful granite peaks. At the end of the traverse, we will have time to recharge energy and get more food for the coming days.

The next 5-8 days are not less exciting! We will start by crossing a big glacier called Kaarale, 2.4 km wide and reach the opposite side of the fjord. The crossing of this glacier might take the whole day (4-6 hours), because it is not covered in snow and the crevasses make the way across much longer than 2,4 km. On the opposite side we will establish camp.and the mission will be to reach some peaks behind our camp from where we will admire hundreds of unnamed and unexplored peaks surrounded by glaciers, called in glaciology nunataks. 

The highlights of this trip are: glacier traverse, remote fjords, glacier travel and ice climbing, summit, and wilderness camping.

This tour is unique not only by different locations and amazing views but also by a small group of a maximum 4 people! You can expect every day to be active 6 hours, hiking about 10 km distance and a max of 800 meters elevation gain. To join this tour you need to have multiday hiking experience, camping and fitness level good enough to carry a backpack of 12kg for at least 4 days in a row.

The area where we will go is situated 60 km north of Kulusuk, in Tunu bay, between 2 and 4 hours by speed boat depending sea ice conditions. From here we will start our 4 days glacier traverse across huge valleys surrounded by steep mountains. At the end of the traverse, we will camp in one of the most stunning location of the whole trip, in front of a calving glacier called Kaarale, situated in Sermiligaaq ford.

During the next days we will have time to rest, repack our bags with new food delivered by boat and reach the wildest area of the entire trip. The plan starts with crossing from south to north the terminal part of the Kaarale glacier, which will take the whole day. After that our goal is to reach some of the nunatak peaks that are dominating the fjord of Semiligaaq. 


All our guides are part of the Association of Icelandic Mountain Guides and qualified Alpine trekking Guides. Besides this we also make sure to have guides with extensive wilderness first aid examinations and be qualified first responders. These for us are some of the qualifications needed to be able to guide our guests in such remote and wild places. 

All areas of East Greenland are also the territory of the polar bear so this land can't be underestimated and a real precaution must be taken. We provide guiding service from guides that we trust will make sure you will have the best memorable time in East Greenland.

All our transportation to our explored areas is made with the help of the locals, the most experienced boat drivers used to deal with extreme sea ice conditions.
