Useful information

This is a true wilderness trekking trip! We will only be sleeping in tents, and carry everything we need for the whole trip in our backpacks.

We will be hiking almost the entire time within the new Unesco World Heritage landscape of Aasivissuit- Nipisat.

The hike will go through very untouched nature, and we are likely to encounter animals such as Reindeer, Musk-Oxes, Polar Foxes and numerous bird species.

Along the way we pass numerous lakes and small rivers, so bring your fishing rod if you feel like. We may then catch a nice snack in the evening. However this is not primarily a fishing trip, this is primarly a hiking trip, where there is possibilities for fishing in the evening and on the rest days.

From Kangerlussuaq airport we will grab a taxi eastwards to the ice sheet. From there we will start our hike northwards with spectacular views of the Greenland ice cap.

After hiking northwards for a day, we will turn to the west and hike for 4 days through the pristine wilderness and end up at the Unesco world heritage site of Aassivisuit. Here we will have a rest day, with possibilities of fishing, small hiking excursions to see the cultural heritage at this site, or just relaxing and enjoying life!

Together with a experienced Arctic Nature Guide, you will on this trek have a unique chance to experience the untouched nature of Greenland, but also ancient Unesco cultural heritage of the Inuits.

In the evening of return we will be eating a better dinner, and hopefully finish with a party.
