Wilderness Paddling In East Greenland

1 weeks

Paddling in a kayak through the untamed wilderness of East Greenland is an experience you won't forget. The pristine fjords, icebergs, wildlife and alpine peaks make the perfect setting for the ultimate adventure.

What to expect?

East Greenland is famous for its pristine and unforgiving landscape, with colossal jagged mountains stretching as far as the eyes can see. Gain first- hand experience in how the Inuit traveled from various hunting grounds to another a few generations ago. On this kayaking tour it is not uncommon to encounter curious seals, while listening to icebergs crumbling in the distance. While you paddle through the domain of the giants – the whales, you may feel their deep breaths from afar in this dreamlike corner of the world. During the hikes you will get up close with the forces of nature unlike any other and immerse yourself into a savage wilderness carrying a sweet scent of the fragile flora growing in impossible conditions in valleys and fjords carved by glaciers over thousands of years. The inhabitants of the area are just as vivid as any wild flower, so while you sail by the friendly fishermen you will understand why the Inuit is known as “the smiling folk”.
