Adventure Holidays in Greenland

Greenland is the ultimate adventure holiday destination. It's the world's largest non-continental island, and yet it has the sparsest population. Greenland is all about ice: approximately 79% of its surface is under an ice cap up to 3 metres thick. Greenland also has many fjords - deep... Read more

Western Greenland has both one of the fastest moving glaciers in the world (Eqip Serm glacier) and the most productive glacier outside of Antarctica (Sermeq Kujalleq glacier). The enormous Sermeq Kujalleq glacier is 10 kilometres wide and 1,000 metres thick. The icebergs produced by this glacier represent more than 10% of all icebergs in Greenland, corresponding to 20 million tonnes of ice per day.

Eastern Greenland is home to the world's largest fjord complex, Scorsbysund, which contains 'iceberg alley', with majestic icebergs, some of which are over 100 metres high. The eastern coast of Greenland is the most isolated and the communities found here are the most traditional, demonstrating ways of life which are now long past in other areas of Greenland. This region also contains the remains of Thule winter houses, the ancestors of the indigenous people of Greenland.

Private Adventures

As well as our range of fixed departure group holidays, did you know we can also arrange adventures for you, your friends and family on dates to suit you? In many cases we can modify our standard itineraries, upgrade the accommodation, or add on a few days for relaxation at the end. See our Private Adventures page for more information.

Private Adventures - your words, not ours...

We booked our trip 6 months in advance and Paula was extremely helpful and efficient in arranging a private trip for our 2 families on dates that we requested. Our local guide Antonio and driver Alan were friendly, helpful, professional and went to infinite trouble to give us a fantastic holiday.
