East Greenland is remote and very sparsely populated. We use expert local guides to transport and lodge us is in this remote corner of the Arctic. Temperatures are from 5-10°C this time of year. The areas lying closer to the north Atlantic can be windy but once we go into the deep fjords calmer weather is expected. As ice and weather conditions heavily influence our presence here we will keep detailed daily itinerary flexible and rely on our local experts for advice.
We will use small speed boats to get us between places. There are not roads in Greenland so travel is done on water or in the air. We will stay in guesthouse and local huts for the trip. Last night in Greenland is in comfortable hotel Kulusuk. While in remote village our accommodation will be basic and we could have to share rooms with more than one person.

Arrival in Iceland. Staying at a hotel in Reykjavík where we meet other members of the group.
Flight to from Iceland to Kuluskuk in Greenland. We will be sailing to remote village of Tinit which is located on the shore of Sermilik ice fjord. This will be our base from where we will explore further like the Knud Rasmussen Glacier, Village of Kuummiut, Ikasartivaq fjord with its towering peaks.
The town on Tinit is the most photogenic in all of east Greenland. The ice fjord Sermilik is has huge ice bergs constantly flowing by with many smaller ones stranded on its shores.
We move our base to Tasilaq. This is the largest town on the east coast of with about 2.000 inhabitants. We will spend some time in the village but we will also explore the abandoned base of Ikateq, Mittivakkat Glacier and glaciers further beyond.
