Overview

The Ammassalik Fjords of East Greenland are one of the great sea kayaking destinations. Steep mountains rise out of the sea to create an interconnecting system of sheltered channels stretching back from the open ocean to the vast Greenland icecap. Gigantic icebergs from this glacier slowly sail along the larger fjords to the sea.
In the smaller fjords, pack ice and small bergs shift and move with the tide, creating a fascinating maze for paddlers to navigate. This will be one of the great expeditions for even the most-travelled adventurer. Several tiny, picturesque out-port villages within the fjords provide an interesting insight into the local Greenlanders' primitive way of life. Along the way we'll pitch our tents at ancient Thule campsites - often the only level place to camp. Side hikes to spectacular alpine lookouts are a common evening activity, and we'll make time for some longer half- and full-day hikes, as the group wishes. The East Greenland trip is suitable for those with some previous sea kayaking and wilderness camping experience. Advanced skills are not required, but even the most- experienced paddlers will be moved by the otherworldly beauty and enjoyable paddling.
