Greenland has one the world's most expansive ice sheets, second in size only to Antarctica. Here, in the last frontier for many experienced travelers, lie the uninhabited and lonely stretches of nature at its most magnificent. The world has long glamorized Greenland for being destitute; remember Walter Mitty's famous landing in a crumbling Nuuk? In reality, the country offers up a mix of mystery, history, scenery and wildlife - redefining Arctic cool. Led by Big Chill Adventures co-founders Sarah Aciego and Mindy Cambiar, this all-inclusive trip focuses on exploring rugged and fantastic landscapes of pristine beauty and exotic, arctic wildlife that is abundant in this, one of the last frontiers.
We have chosen destinations and added a number of activities designed to yield adventure opportunities of the highlights that West Greenland has to offer: calving glaciers and palatial icebergs near Ilulissat, dogsledding and indigenous life on Disko Island, musk ox and reindeer close to the ice sheet in Kangerlussuaq, and an open-boat tour of the fjords surrounding the capital city of Nuuk. Along the way, we will provide opportunities for kayaking or a midnight boat ride amongst icebergs, all-day hikes on primitive trails, and even some mountain biking. We will take care of everything you need to interact with the Greenland environment up close and personal from the time you step off the plane in Greenland to your departure from the country. The lodges and casual itinerary are guaranteed to offer great adventure opportunities while the meals and other details are sure to please. Small group, maximum 8. Moderate walking and hiking every day, with potential for strenuous physical activity, and alternatives for those with health conditions that preclude strenuous activity.
