Day 3

Tasiilaq

Though the interior of Greenland is covered by a massive ice cap, a few habitable areas exist around the bays and coastal islands. The region we visit enjoys a surprisingly mild summer climate, earning it the nickname “Arctic Riviera.” Our exploration starts with a half-day excursion by enclosed private motorboat in the Greenland Sea, for our first close-up views of icebergs. Whales are also found seasonally in these waters. (B)(L)(D)

Day 4

Tasiilaq - Base Camp

Depart via boat or helicopter for our exclusive wilderness Base Camp, located on the east side of Sermilik Fjord. Our destination is near the tiny hamlet of Tinit, home to fewer than a hundred hardy people. Reaching Base Camp Greenland, we find ourselves in one the most remote places on Earth. After settling in to our deluxe private cabins, we’ll convene for an orientation, followed by dinner and a lecture to acquaint us with the remarkable natural history of the region. Through presentations and cultural visits during our stay, we also learn about Greenland’s cultural heritage and aspects of modern life. (B)(L)(D)

Day 5

Base Camp

On Zodiac excursions, we navigate among icebergs in an array of wild shapes, some as big as buildings. Look for whales and seals, both of which are present depending on the ice. Guided sea kayaking is possible for an eye-level view of the frigid waters around us. There will be hiking excursions for all levels. Traverse mountainsides and wander near glaciers. Amid fields of Arctic cotton grass, look for Arctic fox and birdlife, including eiders, loons and possibly peregrine falcons. Each evening, we retreat to our base camp for creative meals prepared by our chef. After dinner, gather for interpretive presentations by our Expedition Leaders. (B)(L)(D)
