GREENLAND FJORDS TREK
Your 9-day journey takes you far into some of the most pristine and isolated terrain on the southeast coast of Greenland. On this one-of-a-kind wilderness expedition, you trek 4 to 9 miles a day over rugged terrain where there are no trails or paths, just the wildest, most beautiful landscape you can imagine. Rich with Innuit and Viking history, your journey through the fjords of Greenland starts and ends in the quaint village of Kulusuk, home to 250 Innuit people.
On your trek, you cover a large variety of terrain - river crossings, sandy beaches, boulder fields, miles of rocky shoreline and hillsides covered in vegetation and rock slabs. The route is challenging and exhilarating with a tranquility that exudes from the lazy meandering of the ice flows. It's both awe inspiring and life changing.
- Trekking Distance: 47 miles or 76 km

"In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous." ~ Aristotle

YOUR GREENLAND GUIDE
Rich Manterfield is your key to adventure. He wears many hats; leader, teacher, interpreter and guide, and hails from Sheffield, England. Rich has been guiding wilderness treks and dog sled expeditions across Greenland for the past 6 years, and is a qualified UIMLA International Mountain Leader. Depending on the size of the group, Rich will be accompanied by an assistant guide. He shows you where to catch trout, pick wild blueberries and dig for clams to augment great dinners. He also opens an incredible window into one of the most beautiful places on earth.
CREW ON THE TREK
In addition to your trek guide you have a support crew who are always working behind the scenes – at the lodge in Kulusuk and driving the boats. Unlike our other treks, they aren't hiking with you. Each day on the fjords they pick up your camping gear and transport it to your next camp location, where it is waiting for you.
The other half of the crew is you. When we arrive at our campsite for the day, everyone pitches in setting up camp and taking it down the next day. We also pitch in with meal prep and on Polar Bear watch.
