Paddling in South Greenland in 2014

GREENLAND is the world’s largest island and a country full of contrasts. In addition to rows of tines and glaciers plunging into the icy fjords, Greenland really live up to its name. “Green Country” was in fact not only Eirik the Red’s “sales tricks” to lure northerners here, here it is actually green! Northern Exposure take you on a 14 day canoe trip to the lush South Greenland. – Join us to explore Eirik the Red’s land!
Nanortalik is the starting point for our paddling expedition. The small village of 1300 inhabitants is a mecca for hikers, climbers and canoeists worldwide. From here we head south into the fjord system north of Cape Farewell. These fjords offers real adventure. This is just for people who have paddling experience, but you need not be an expert.

Greenland Sea Kayak Expedition Glenmore Lodge Scotland 2014

Our proposed Greenland dates for 2014 are from Friday 18th July until Monday the 4th August.

Our time away is spent sea kayaking in the stunning Cape Farwell area of South Greenland. As well as experiencing travelling by kayak in and around icebergs with glaciated mountains as a backdrop, we will educate you in the expedition skills required to be self sufficient in an arctic environment.

Having arrived in the town of Nanortalik, by helicopter from Nassarsuq, we will spend our first day sorting out all the equipment and get out for a local paddle (to get our first taste of paddling amongst icebergs!). Then we will start to pack our kayaks and ensure we have time to explore the town of Nanortalik where we are staying. The next day we will set off for 12 days kayaking, weather, fitness and interest permitting, moving to a new camp almost every day. We’ll be totally self sufficient for the trip, and our journey will take us through some of the most spectacular scenery on earth. We will journey along the outside coast of south Greenland for the first few days to just before the infamous Cape Farewell. Then we will head up the mountainous fjords and explore these as we head to where the Greenland Icecap carves into the fjords. We will have an opportunity to also visit the most southerly settlement in Greenland, Appilatoq.

We will generally average between 20-30km a day, and fingers crossed be enjoying some fine sunny Greenland weather! We will be using 2 person tents, and each tent will prepare its own meals. After 12 days our trip finishes in Appilatoq where a charter boat returns us to the comforts of a hostel in Nanortalik, before flying home the following day.
