Arctic Adventures

A journey to Greenland’s glacial landscape, witness the marvel of Mother Nature in her purest form in one of the last unspoiled wildernesses

Polar exploration to view the glorious glaciers of Greenland has never been more accessible. Whilst most of Greenland is uninhabitable, with frozen tundra reaching far into the Arctic Circle, along the western coast is a thin strip of land of unimaginable beauty. The most northern UNESCO World Heritage site Ilulissat Icefjord, and the ethereally beautiful islands around Eqip Sermia at Disko Bay. This vast and ever-changing backdrop makes for one of the most exciting and unique destinations on the planet, filled with enormous icebergs that tower as far as the eye can see in every direction.

The region is home to fascinating wildlife; musk oxen, polar fox reindeer, walrus, whales and sea-eagles among many. Also home to the Inuit, one of the most resourceful cultures.

The west coast offers an unparalleled opportunity to experience Greenlandic culture visiting normally inaccessible villages. The traditions of its pioneering people create a cultural experience like no other. Get close to stunning glacial formations and relish this spectacular area and magnificent scenery.
