The Perfect Mix of Culture, Nature & Adventure

You will learn that remote doesn’t always mean lifeless when you join us to explore the remote Inuit villages of East Greenland. This fantastic trekking trip takes you to three of the most isolated villages in the region. Traverse between mountains, alongside iceberg filled waters and witness the beauty of enormous glaciers, whose calvings sound like thunder. Get a taste of the traditional Inuit hunter’s life in Ammassalik region, see the pioneering spirit in the colorful houses and the friendly villagers, and meet the famous howling sled dogs that you’ve heard about. Immerse yourself in the untouched wilderness of this country and you will see that life is everywhere, whether it’s birds in the sky, whales coming up for air, or the Inuit people welcoming you to their village with open arms. This is an unforgettable tour for those who seek a true outdoor adventure in remote areas, but prefer inside accommodations to camping in wild and fascinating nature.

"I wanted to say that the trip was incredible! I was absolutely blown away by the places we explored and by your company's professionalism. Our guide was constantly going the extra mile to see that we were all very happy and having the time of our lives out here in the beautiful wilds of Greenland. I will definitely tell all my friends and family about Icelandic Mountain Guides. This was one of the best weeks of my entire life."
