An Arctic wilderness walking holiday in East Greenland, one of the most remote locations on earth
With towering granite peaks, unspoilt nature, shimmering glaciers, and fjord-cut coastline, East Greenland is one of the most spectacular locations on Earth. On this walking holiday we will explore this boundless wilderness from several different bases: first Kulusuk Island; then Kuummiut, an isolated community on a peninsula deep in the fjords; Camp Quaato, a mountain refuge right at the heart of this raw, glacial landscape; and finally, Tasiilaq, the tiny “capital” of eastern Greenland, on the island of Ammassalik. Here, we have a day to explore amongst the colourful houses, fishing boats and howling sled dogs; this is a local community with a true pioneering spirit. Highlights will include the ascent of Kuummiut Mountain (1050m), offering views that extend to the Greenland Icecap, and following the Sermilik Way, a route used by the Inuit for generations. We connect the dots with a series of exciting boat transfers; as we whisk past the icebergs we should look out for seals and fin whales also making their way through they fjords. This is the perfect holiday for those seeking a real wilderness adventure.
