The tour starts with one night in Reykjavik, capital of Iceland, before leaving for the rough terrain of East Greenland. We will fly with Air Iceland to Kulusuk island in Greenland and then onwards with an old veteran Vietnam helicopter to Tasiilaq.
In Tasiilaq the crew will get dog sledge training and if they do well, they might pass for a dog sledge driving license. During our training days in Tasiilaq we will get an introduction to the fascinating Inuit culture of the locals, meeting local artists, old polar bear hunters and getting a taste of their exotic cuisine. The Inuit traditions are still a strong part of their everyday life, but there are only about 100 years since the local tribes on the east coast had the first contact with the outside world. East Greenland is one of the least explored regions in the world.
When the team is ready we will head out on the ice in dog sledges for three days exploring the wonders of the East Greenlandic nature with enormous icebergs, steep mountains, endless snow and if we are lucky, the phenomenal northern lights colouring the arctic night sky. We will be sleeping in hunter huts along the way.
We will then return to the town of Tasiilaq, a town of 2.000 inhabitants and the largest on the eastern coast of Greenland. On the way back we will again spend one night in Reykjavik, Iceland before heading to our home countries.
The expedition is a challenge, both physically and mentally, but not extremely dangerous. We will be travelling off the beaten track in a cold climate and harsh environment. The crew can not expect any luxury, but you can expect an unforgettable experience.
