A unique opportunity to experience all the superlatives of West Greenland on an easy walking and hiking holiday, 350km North of the Arctic Circle: a world of icebergs, inland ice and the Inuit. There's a mesmerising start at the ‘Ice-berg Capital of the World’, not only the largest concentration of icebergs in the world but also home to the largest icebergs in Greenland. The Ilulissat icefjord, itself a UNESCO World Heritage site, sits within another UNESCO World Heritage site, Disko Bay. It’s around this fantastical setting, steeped in Inuit culture, that our easier walking is based. Sled dogs are an integral part of life in the isolated hunters’ settlement of Oqaatsut and the impatient yowling of the huskies will be a constant accompaniment of your stay in this tiny hamlet. You will experience life in an Inuit community still dependent on hunting and fishing and eat the local's fresh catch of the day in the small cafe. Moving from the icebergs to Greenland’s Ice Cap, Kangerlussuaq is set in wild backcountry that will put a spring in adventurous spirits. You will find the Arctic tundra’s miles of hiking solitude is broken only by occasional herds of reindeer and Greenlandic Musk Ox. Hiking at the edge of the Inland Ice Cap, through the fantastic glacial surroundings of magnificent Russell Glacier, provides a suitably artic finale to our week in West Greenland. Flying to Greenland via Denmark, there’s also the option to extend your holiday in Denmark’s Capital of Cool, Copenhagen, a wonderfully vibrant contrast to the magnificent solitude of West Greenland.
