Profound back country backpacking in Greenland
Take the ultimate East Greenland backpacking trip. This tour truly offers every challenge of good backpacking with trails crossing narrow valleys and fjords, high granite peaks that seemingly rise straight from the sea to the sky, as well as fantastic views from beautiful camps. The tour takes place in the mountains just East of the Sermilik ice fjord, a place only accessible by foot. at this point we will be able to uncover fragile flora and the bird life of the Arctic. We also explore the ever so popular enormous amounts of icebergs and drift ice of the Sermilik, also known as the Ice fjord! Our walk takes us past beautiful lakes and rivers, along the coast of ice filled fjords where the mountains are reflected in the still water of the Arctic summer. We continue on to visit the hunter´s villages of Tiniteqilaq, Kulusuk village, and the regional capital Tasiilaq(1800 inhabitants). During the backpacking, we carry provisions for 3 to 4 days at a time, assuring a reasonable limit to the weight of our backpacks.
