At Greenland Adventures, we are passionate about the outdoors, and a huge part of this philosophy is about inspiring others to to be passionate about the outdoors. With that in mind, what better place to start than the children, the next generation, those that will be the future?
The East Greenland Rock Climbing Project seeks to fulfil many objectives with regard to the regional socio-economic development of East Greenland, currently focussing on Kulusuk but expanding to Tasiilaq in the near future. Overall, the project has 4 main objectives:
Explore the potential for rock climbing in East Greenland.
Establishing rock climbing routes that can be used by the local population as well as visitors to the region.
Encourage cultural exchange and collaboration between Icelandic and Greenlandic populations as well as giving back to local communities.
Expose the local population to climbing and foment a local knowledge base in climbing so that the local population can be self-sustaining in the medium to long term.
