Walk in the footsteps of the Arctic explorers and spend a night camping on the Great Greenland Ice Sheet.

From the famous Point 660, to our ice camp, to the Russell Glacier, this trip will give you plenty of glacier hiking experience and take you to the most interesting features in the area.

Spending a night on the world’s second-largest icefield is a truly unique experience.

    My guide was Adam, and he was awesome. He was both informative and funny which was a great help. Something else I should mention is his willingness to help anyone that needed help.

    The views were incredible, and I still can’t believe that I was actually there. It was a surreal experience. For one, I know that I was fortunate to be able to go and see the Ice Cap, but also it was important because I got to see the effects of climate change.

    The weather had been unusually warm for my entire stay in Greenland, both here and other areas. That may have assisted me, but it was a little windy at night so it took a little while for me to be warm enough.

    The only thing I think should be mentioned is more about what is involved for the camping, such as setting up tents and the like.

    I’d advise anyone considering it to have layers of course and perhaps choose your hiking books wisely. My boots were good enough, but the softer soles caused issues at times with the crampons. I’d also say make sure you are physically up for the hikes and let the guide know if you have any medical issues or concerns from the very beginning.

    All in all, it was a great experience, and anyone who is able to do it, should. You won’t regret it.
