Hiking Adventures in Surreal Landscapes

Repertory Trip: Next Offered July 5-14, 2019 & July 3-12, 2020

What the Trip is Like

This wonderful adventure in one of the most remote corners of the world is best suited for experienced hikers. Our hikes feature up to 2,600 feet of elevation gain or loss, and are up to 13 miles in length—be ready for some wonderfully full hiking days! The hiking terrain can be rough and rocky, often with no distinct trail, and we will have some short hikes on glaciers, with rough snow and ice underfoot. No technical gear (crampons, ice axes) is necessary, but on all hikes, hiking poles will be very useful. This is wild country, and all participants should be ready for hiking in a beautiful, but unmanicured landscape. It’s a big part of the appeal! Note: While we are hiking in Greenland, our guide will be carrying a rifle. Polar bears are rarely seen around the towns, but they can be sighted anywhere, and for the safety of the group, our guide will have a rifle with him on all walks. This is the same policy we follow in Africa on our walking safaris.

The weather in this part of the world is notoriously variable, and participants must come prepared for the strong winds and sudden weather changes of Iceland and Greenland. Proper hiking gear is essential, and a full packing list will be sent with your pre-departure information. The weather will have the final say in our daily itinerary. We will do our best to complete all activities as outlined in this itinerary, but the safety of the group is of primary importance, and will be the guiding factor in our decisions.

Please note that in Iceland and Greenland, there will not be many vegan options. We do our best to offer vegetarian dishes, but cannot accommodate vegan dishes.
