Trekking in East Greenland

Not so many noisy neighbors here

Trekking in magic and remote East Greenland plus two nights in Iceland. 8 days of trekking along the Sermilik fiord and around the beautiful Ammassalik Island. This is a “once in a lifetime” experience for the adventurous person who prefers trekking in beautiful and remote areas with mountains, ice, and glaciers but also short stays in small settlements. You don’t need to bring your iPhone, but remember your camera.

The trek takes us through one of the most beautiful landscapes - in the world, if we may say so. Each night we camp far away from civilization, and our local guides follow us by boat and transport all our equipment, so we can hike with only a light rucksack.

The trek is designed for people in physical shape, preferably those who have hiked previously, though extensive hiking experience is not necessary.Participants typically vary in age from 35 to 60 years of age, and equal numbers of men and women.

Den Blå Lagune i Island

We fly from Copenhagen to Reykjavik in Iceland in the North Atlantic. At Keflavik airport, our guide meets the group and we travel by bus for the 40 km drive to Reykjavik – the capital of Iceland. Our drive takes us through very fascinating lava landscape – all black and with very little flora.
We arrive in Reykjavik. Despite its relatively small size, Reykjavik is a real metropolis with attractive shopping streets, modern restaurants,cafés and architecture.

About the tour guide
The tour guide is responsible for organising all practical aspects of the trip including transportation, lodging, food preparation, etc. The tour guide is also an expert on the area itself – where to find the best hiking routes, good places to buy fresh-caught fish, etc.

Greenland Travel has a 50-member-strong group of guides, many of whom have worked with us for more than 10 or 20 years. Their experience is handed on through the training of new guides, ensuring both continuity and a high standard of quality. With one of our tour guides at your side, a great Greenland experience is more than assured.

The tour guide is responsible for and is authorized to change the route, accommodations, method of transportation and schedule if deemed necessary. Every attempt will be made to harmonize any changes with the wishes of the group. And although travel takes place in a group, our tour guide will always do his or her best to accommodate individual needs and requests.
