    Overview

    Experience some of the wildest landscapes on the planet with our Trip Leader and "northern ambassador" Rob Noonan. We'll explore remote corners of Northwestern Iceland and Eastern Greenland with adventurous full-day hikes that provide jaw-dropping views of sheer granite mountains and dramatic fjords carved by ancient glaciers. In Iceland, we discover the gloriously untouched Westfjords region, with its massive seabird colonies, stepped waterfalls, and dramatic mountains sheltering tiny fishing harbors and villages where Icelandic culture thrives. And on Greenland's extremely isolated eastern coast, we'll meet the native Greenlandic people, hike rugged and spectacular trails used for generations by Inuit hunters, and cruise through channels filled with icebergs. In this realm of elemental beauty and wilderness, we'll savor the rarity of pure silence and the spell-binding light of the Arctic summer.

      Arrive in Reykjavík and fly to Kulusuk in eastern Greenland. A spectacular helicopter flight brings us to the village of Tasiilaq, set on stunning King Oscar Fjord. With charming Tasiilaq as our base, our hikes bring us to steep granite peaks rising above a flotilla of sculpted icebergs, to the ice of calving glaciers, and on ancient hunting trails used by Inuit hunters. One of our adventures is a fantastic cruise into mighty Sermilik Fjord, whose vast ice wall is part of the Greenland ice sheet, a relic of the last Ice Age, up to two miles thick in places.
      A helicopter ride brings us back to Kulusuk, where we fly to Reykjavík and head north to Ísafjörður, a trading post since the 16th century. In the southern reaches of the Westfjords, we hike up Mýrafell for views of the expanse of Dýrafjörður, along the spectacular Látrabjarg Cliffs, famed for millions of nesting seabirds, including puffins, and on the trails of Álftafjörður, a magnificent fjord with a dramatic gorge and waterfall. A ferry ride brings us across magnificent Breidafjörður Bay, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and we depart via Reykjavík on Day 11.

      What the Trip is Like

      This trip is rated Level 4+, Moderate to Strenuous, according to our trip grading system. 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! 
      Review Trip Level Details

      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 (and they are provided). 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. Temperatures should be in the mid 50s, perfect for hiking. The weather can provide spectacular clear days but can also be very wet and changeable, and we want you to be well prepared for all you may encounter. Weather in Iceland and Greenland is always unpredictable, so you must come prepared for at least some rain and bring appropriate rain gear. It is unlikely that it will be truly hot. Trip members need to remain flexible in consideration of inclement weather that may require changes, such as substituting different hiking routes or changing the planned itinerary. Water activities such as our boating excursion are also dependent on sea forecasts.

      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.

      Trip Levels

      With more than 200 different adventures to choose from, we want to help you find the trip that’s right for you. Our Trip Level system ranks each trip in two ways: a number rating from 1 to 6 according to the activity, and general travel rigors. 1 is the easiest and 6+ the most difficult—see descriptions below for explanations of each number. A plus (+) sign means the trip is a bit more strenuous than other trips of that level. The detailed explanation of each trip—below the bar with the number rating—is perhaps more important, specifying activities, altitudes, hiking, and travel conditions. The Detailed Itinerary, available by download or mail, gives further information. Our Area Managers can also answer questions and guide you to the trip that best suits your interests.

      Level 1 – Easiest

      Non-camping journeys, optional walks, little elevation gain or loss.

      Level 2 – Easy to Moderate

      Hotel nights and/or safari-style camping, hikes of two to four hours on some days. Other physical activities are sometimes included, such as optional sea kayaking.

       

      Level 3 – Moderate

      Half- to full-day hikes (3-6 hours) over rolling countryside on most days, occasional steep trails. Many of our hotel-based walking tours are in this category, as are our snorkeling adventures.

      Level 4 – Moderate to Strenuous

      Full-day hikes (4-6 hours), mountainous terrain, significant elevation gains and losses (hiking up or down as much as 3,000 feet) on many days. Altitudes no greater than about 10,000 feet.

       

      Level 5 – Strenuous

      Full-day hikes (4-8 hours), mountainous, steep terrain (hiking up or down as much as 3,500 feet) on many days. Trips with hiking at average altitudes of 10,000 to 12,000 feet are in this category.

      Level 6 – Very Strenuous

      Full-day hikes (5-8 hours), mountainous, steep terrain (hiking up or down as much as 3,500 feet) on many days. Most hikes take place at altitudes above 10,000 feet, with some days ascending as high as 18,000 feet.

Be sure to check the expiration date. Your passport must be valid for six months after your date of exit from Greenland. In addition, we recommend your passport have at least two completely blank visa pages for every country you will be visiting. It is very important that the blank pages say &#8220;Visas&#8221; at the top. The last few pages of your passport, which say &#8220;Amendments and Endorsements,&#8221; and the final page of your passport, which may not have a page number, are not considered to be legitimate visa pages. The service of adding pages for visas was discontinued as of January 1, 2016. You can request a new passport through <a href=\"http:\/\/travel.state.gov\/passport\">US Passport Services Office<\/a> or use a visa service agency, which can take care of your passport renewal and expedite the process, if needed. We recommend <a href=\"http:\/\/www.passportvisasexpress.com\/?affId=2120\">Passport Visas Express<\/a>. Be sure to allow sufficient time to acquire this before your trip. <br><br>It is very important to carry photocopies of your passport's photo page and any acquired visa pages for your trip (if applicable) in case your passport is lost or as an additional piece of identification, as well as two extra passport photos.","Custom_Visas_and_Entry_Notes":"US citizens do not need a visa for countries visited on this trip. If you are a citizen of any country other than the US, check with a local consulate for entry requirements.","Custom_Money":"The Icelandic kr&oacute;na is the official currency of Iceland, and the Danish krone is the official currency of Greenland. Although the countries are almost entirely cashless, you can use an ATM to withdraw cash if you need it or if you would like to tip your leaders in the local currency. The most convenient way to obtain either currency is to use your debit card at ATMs. To use an ATM internationally, you must have a four-digit PIN. Major credit cards are accepted in most shops in cities and larger towns. If you plan to use your credit cards, inform your credit card company before your departure that you will be using the card abroad.","Custom_Tipping":"Tipping is completely discretionary, but over the years, clients have asked us for tipping guidelines to reward guides for outstanding service. We suggest a tip of $200 USD or more per trip member for each of the Trip Leaders, preferably in local currency. The Trip Leaders take care of gratuities for hotel and restaurant staff, and for local guides and drivers.","Custom_Food":"We will do our best to accommodate special dietary needs, however, please keep in mind that certain cultural differences or limitations due to logistics can make it extremely difficult and at times impossible to accommodate dietary restrictions.

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.

Weather in Iceland and Greenland is always unpredictable, so you must come prepared for at least some rain and bring appropriate rain gear. It is unlikely that it will be truly hot. Trip members need to remain flexible in consideration of inclement weather that may require changes, such as substituting different hiking routes or changing the planned itinerary. Water activities such as our boating excursion are also dependent on sea forecasts. <\/p><p>The weather will have the final say in our daily itinerary.

As of March 2024, we no longer require guests who exhibit cold or flu symptoms to test for COVID-19. Guests who test positive for COVID-19 will be required to follow local health protocols, wear a mask in group vehicles and during indoor activities for the remainder of the trip, and may be asked to dine separately. Any travel companion sharing a room with them will also be required to wear a mask at all times in the shared group vehicles for the remainder of the trip.<br><br>We encourage all travelers to actively monitor their own well-being and to use common-sense preventative measures such as regular handwashing (or use of hand sanitizer) and\/or wearing a face mask. If you are feeling sick, we encourage you to self-isolate and\/or wear a mask to protect your fellow travelers. Guests may be required to wear a mask if the Trip Leader believes the situation warrants it.<br><br>Leading up to the trip, we encourage you to do everything possible to stay healthy, including avoiding close contact with anyone displaying cold or flu symptoms and washing your hands often. As always, by traveling with Wilderness Travel, guests agree to be accountable for their own well-being. If you are worried about a fellow traveler's cold or flu-like symptoms, you may opt to wear a mask or distance yourself as needed. It's important to remember that there are inherent risks associated with travel and group settings.<br><br>These protocols will be reviewed and adjusted as guidance evolves. <br><br>","System_Photography":"<strong>Camera Recommendations<\/strong><br>With the many advances in digital technology, a simple compact digital camera or even your smartphone is capable of taking pictures suitable for the needs of most people. For higher quality images and the ability to use long lenses for closer wildlife pictures, a DSLR camera is well worthwhile, though heavier. Most digital cameras and phones have good video options, but you may want to consider a GoPro for a lightweight, waterproof option. Always practice ahead of time with new equipment and bring your manual with you. You may want to consider renting camera equipment for your trip from places such as <a href=\"https:\/\/www.lensrentals.com\/\">lensrentals.com<\/a>. This is an especially good idea for renting large zoom lenses that you may need for just one trip. Adding their extra insurance fee to cover expensive equipment is recommended. <br><strong><br>Camera Accessories<\/strong><br>We recommend bringing at least two large capacity memory cards or a small digital storage unit (or tablet) to back up your photos, freeing space on your memory cards. Don't forget to bring a battery charger and a backup battery so one is always charged and ready to use. For trips where you may be away from power sources for multiple days, consider looking into a solar-powered battery charger or buying additional backup batteries, and check that you have the appropriate adapter for the electrical outlets in your destination.<br><strong><br>Sharing Your Images<\/strong><br>We would love for you to share photos from your trip, and with your permission, may even use your photos in our marketing materials or on our photo blog. We request that you send us a small sample of your best images. Please email your photos to wtphotoblog@gmail.com or tag us @WildernessTravel on social media.<br><strong><br>Photography Etiquette<\/strong><br>When taking pictures of local people, be aware of cultural considerations. Approaching people with a warm smile and using polite gestures or simple phrases to ask permission to photograph them usually works well. It is always recommended to engage people in conversation before asking to photograph them, but if people do not wish to have their photo taken, please honor their requests. We urge travelers to avoid giving money in exchange for photo opportunities, which makes it harder for future travelers to have a meaningful personal interaction with local people. Please always heed your Trip Leader's guidelines for what is appropriate.
