Majestic. Wild. Glacial. An eerie landscape of harsh extremes.
Greenland’s icy wilderness remains one of travel’s true frontiers. Its sparse population inhabits picture-perfect villages imbued in Inuit and Viking history. Explore spectacular fjords, icebergs, and active glaciers to stand at the coalface of nature and experience its immense power.
Soar through the Scoresby Sund fjords in a helicopter; come face to face with the searing walls of the Eqi glacier on a private yacht; cross the rugged terrain by snowmobile, seeking out whales, foxes, and polar bears; meet indigenous Inuits and witness their unusual and hypnotic throat singing; find true tranquility as you hike the mountains or sail the fjords; visit the colourful wooden houses of the west coast villages; marvel at the Aurora Borealis from the sanctuary of your private igloo; traverse a winter wonderland by dogsled; take your off-piste skiing to the next level; immerse yourself in Greenlandic history and art on a tour of the Ilulissat Museum
Where to Stay
Specially customised trappers huts; luxurious igloo accommodation; a private superyacht.
When to Go
Maximise the midnight sun and plan sailing and active visits from June to August. Winter days are short and intense but best for dog-sledding and to catch the northern lights.
