Getting to know southern Greenland means going beyond the Arctic frontier: a world which until now has been the home of the Inuit people, and which still holds on to the flavor of their traditional lifestyle.
Southern Greenland offers the traveler the impact of a sea covered in icebergs and the awe-inspiring beauty of the glaciers overflowing into the tranquillity of the fjords. The landscape, with its intense green colors and leafy tundra and its colorful settlements, also provides character to this trip that makes the Arctic reachable for any adventure-minded traveler.
On our route, we will be able to navigate through the fjords among blue-tinged icebergs and alongside spectacular glacier tongues. We will sleep in a camp located in a privileged setting, right next to a glacier.
We will also have the opportunity to visit one of Inlandis's glaciers, and cover a small part of its immensity or enjoy an impressive kayak excursion among icebergs. We will be able to take spectacular treks through the tundra and in the glacier valleys, see herds of caribou and marine fauna, fish for Arctic salmon and codfish, gather mushrooms and cranberries.
Along the way, we will get an insight into the story of the Norse settlers. Over the past 1000 years, Inuit and Viking cultures have shaped the people and land of South Greenland. The Qassiarsuk and Igaliku area in the region represent the most comprehensive and rich examples of Norse and Greenlandic farming culture.
This unique heritage has been recently recognized and inscribed in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
