The fjord systems of Southern Greenland are blessed with some of the most dramatic views the country has to offer – white mountains and green valleys, towering icebergs and landscapes in full bloom. Towns cling to its rocky coastline and vast glaciers slowly carve their way through the mountains. This is the place for a breath-taking adventure. Explore the depths of these fabulous fjords on a 5-day expedition that takes you through the second largest fiord system in the world by boat before hiking to a truly special place – Kangersuneq / the ice fiord! Here the Greenland ice cap meets the bottom of Nuuk fiord and fills it with thousands of years old ice. Hiking these vast landscapes and mountains, wild camping amid the raw ecological beauty whilst listening to the ice carving from the glaciers with a warm cup of coffee, sets the scene for one heck of a journey.
The weather conditions can be harsh & ever-changing while the people are friendly & welcoming; you’ll get an insight into daily life for the indigenous locals and learn about their fascinating culture. Plus, you’ll have the chance to fish and forage in traditional ways and enjoy homecooked meals in some of the most pristine wilderness settings on the planet. Plus you’ll have the opportunity for some optional extensions of glacial SUP’ing, whale safari’s or coastal kayaking trips.
This is the perfect adventure for those seeking a remote expedition with no paths to follow and epic landscapes to set up camp. Undoubtedly your local guide will take you on a trip of a lifetime in a meaningful way with real connections to the pristine environment and the people that call it home.

Boat transfer from Nuuk to Kapisillit and hike to base camp at the ice fiord Kangersuneq
Your adventure begins with a boat transfer from Nuuk to Kapisillit in a cabin boat. This is not just any boat ride, it’s a journey through the world’s second largest fiord system in the world. The scenery is spectacular with several mountains emerging steeply from the water line where they top at around 1000 metres. If lucky, you’ll catch sight of whales, seals and different kinds of seabirds. Plus there’s a lot of history to be told on this 2-hour journey.
Docking in the inner bay of Kapisillit (Kangerlupiluk) where you’ll start your 3km hike towards your basecamp. On reaching a peninsula by the beautiful ice fiord (Kangersuneq), you’ll set up camp. An incredible location to soak in the spectacular scenery whilst you settle in to camping life.
Transfer: Boat transfer
Meals: Breakfast, lunch & dinner
Hike to mountain massif Niggu with views of Greenlandic Ice Sheet and overnight at base camp
Starting the day with a good solid breakfast spiced up with a world class view, you’ll be in awe of the early morning rays of sunshine striking the dramatic mountains rising on each side of the ice fiord. With your day-pack you’ll set off for a great day’s hike towards the mountain massif Niggu which rises almost 1000 metres. Part way up the mountain you’ll stop for lunch and also take in the incredible views. Fully fueled if you’re happy to push on, the summit beckons and rewards you with breath-taking views of the Greenlandic Ice Sheet located around 30km further inland. You’ll also have a birds eye view of the beautiful landscape you will be covering on the following days. All being well you may be lucky to see some wildlife too – reindeers, ptarmigans or snow hares, foxes and eagles.
Back at the basecamp you have the opportunity to go fishing to catch dinner and/or go foraging to collect some local herbs, mushrooms and berries.
The evening will be used to prepare for the next two days – a hike inland with a sleepover at Lake Qajartoriarsuaq.
Trek length: approx. 8 – 15kms (depending on how high you trek)
Total ascent: approx. 1000m

Meals: Breakfast, lunch & dinner
Mountain and lakes hike and overnight stay at base camp
After packing up the camp by the lake, you’ll retrace your route before turning toward the mountain massif and leaving the lowlands behind.

Surrounded by lakes and with a high chance of catching a glimpse of some wildlife, this will also be your picturesque lunch spot.
Then you’ll return to basecamp and prepare a feast. And if you have remembered the whiskey, it’s a treat to have a toast with a chunk of ice that dates back millions of years. Filled with amazing experiences and stories to share by the bonfire before snuggling back in to your sleeping bag for the final night of camping and a good nights rest.
Trek length: 10 – 15kms
Meals: Breakfast, lunch & dinner
Hike along the river to the village of Kapisillit. Return boat transfer to Nuuk
When the last photos have been taken of your stunningly located camp site, you’ll take down your basecamp before hiking along the southside of the bay in Kapisillit. Breathing in the crisp clear air your hike reaches the river close to the village of Kapisillit. This is the only river in Greenland where the salmon come to spawn. Here you’ll have a short stop to see if we might catch arctic char in an alternative & traditional way – by hand! A method commonly used by the local guide, so you’re in good hands…
After fishing you’ll hike the last couple of kilometers to Kapisillit with the opportunity to explore this very traditional Greenlandic village. There will be time to chit chat with locals before your pick-up and return boat trip back to Nuuk.

Exclusively curated itinerary by Adventurous Ewe
Since the COVID-19 pandemic has had a huge impact on local communities and livelihoods across the planet, we’re keen to promote adventures in countries that are actively working towards sustainable tourism and conservation projects. Both culture and nature are very important to sustainable tourism in Greenland. Greenlanders are keen on the transmission of local culture, rather than the protection of it. They overwhelmingly want to teach their culture to tourists rather than just preserve it, and this is part of sustainable tourism for them. Locals speak of the value that Greenlandic traditions have today – and argue that people from elsewhere can learn from them.
We’re particularly keen and passionate to help support the local tourism industry here whilst also giving you the chance to get out and explore the diverse landscapes of this country in a safe and enjoyable manner.
This exclusive adventure has been designed by both a local guiding operator and Adventurous Ewe’s Director, Jim, following a recce trip to Greenland in 2022. Our itinerary aims to deliver an amazing experience and showcase the some of the most stunning and remote landscapes across Greenland whilst also giving you the chance to step out of your comfort zone and gain a greater understanding of the mountains, glaciers, ice-fields, environment, wildlife, culture and local communities.
As well as carefully crafting amazing and meaningful adventures across the planet, we’ve made booking them as flexible, safe and as simple as possible. For more info, please our Book and Travel with Confidence page.
On joining us for the Greenland Wilderness Adventure, you will receive all the exciting trip info via our free mobile travel app.
You’ll have access to your itinerary, trip countdown, live updates, contact info, weather forecasts, know before you go trip info, kit lists and much more at the touch of a button 24 hours a day via your mobile phone.

With being a small family business we pride ourselves with providing personal, professional and friendly service. We appreciate that everyone has different levels of experience and reasons for wishing to embark on this Greenland Wilderness Adventure and therefore require varying levels of support and guidance. We’re here to help you every step of the way from the moment you join the flock all the way through to completing the challenge and beyond. Jim and Sue’s knowledge and expertise stems from dozens of years of travelling and exploring the destinations that we visit in order to fully support you in the lead up to your adventure.

Whilst your leader is aware of our trekkers medical history, please also inform your leader on arrival of your allergy, and let them know where you keep your adrenaline pen.
Adventurous Ewe puts the safety and well-being of you, our leaders & crew and the communities we visit at the centre of all our operations, always. Your safety and well-being is our top priority.

This expedition is graded as ‘Tough’, given that you will be trekking and camping in remote areas, but one that is very achievable with the correct preparations and experience.
It requires a good level of strength, endurance, determination and a willingness to chip in and help with camping duties.
The terrain is uneven as there are no designated trails to follow. You will be required to carry all your own kit plus potentially a few extra bits & pieces for camping and food supplies.
Please also be prepared for varied conditions and temps. Due to the unpredictability of the climate in southern Greenland, you will need to be prepared for walking and camping in all conditions, as the weather can change extremely rapidly, making clothing and footwear choices important. Please also note that washing facilities and loos are more or less non-existent on the trek, though please remember that everyone will be experiencing the same conditions and these lack of facilities end up bonding the groups more and creating some great stories.
As with any trek in mountainous and remote areas, safety is paramount and your Leader will always make decisions to amend the itineraries to ensure the safety of the whole group.
Greenland has an Arctic climate with average temperatures that do not exceed 10°C in the warmest summer months. However, the conditions in the coastal regions of the Arctic during the northern summer are both mild and changeable. Enjoyable sunny days can swiftly change to cold, windy storms with snow flurries and rolling seas. Average daily temperatures in mid-season are between -4°C and +2°C; however, wind conditions can make it seem colder. It is common that you will experience daytime temperatures below freezing.
A Trek Training Programme will be provided when you join this trip to help you with your preparations. We also have exclusive offers with our Training Partners and Communities – Her Spirit and Strength & Movement Coast, Peter Lant. For more info, please visit our Training & Preparation page.
The more you are prepared, the more you will enjoy the challenge.
Our motto is: Train hard, smile harder and enjoy the journey!
A full kit list will be provided when you book on this trip or you can download the Trip Notes for this trek. Good kit can make the difference between a fantastic adventure and an uncomfortable one.
An exclusive Adventurous Ewe discount code will be provided for specialist outdoor retailers both online and in store when booked on this expedition.
The packed weight of your pack whilst trekking including, your sleeping bag and mattress, should ideally be no more than 10kgs as you will be carrying this during the expedition. Plus you may also need to carry some camping equipment, group shelters and food items. Anything not required on the trek can be left at the hotel in Nuuk.
To help you get the very best from your Greenland Wilderness Adventure, we will provide you with an exclusive Adventurous Ewe discount code to use in a specialist outdoor retailer both online and in store. They offer a large choice of kit that the staff themselves use while climbing, hiking, mountaineering, running, travelling or enjoying expeditions across the globe and they pride themselves on sharing their experience and knowledge of equipment so you can choose the right gear to suit you and this trip.
7 NIGHTS: HOTEL (3 NIGHTS), CAMPING (4 NIGHTS)
In Nuuk, you’ll stay in a standard hotel, which has en suite bathrooms.
The trek itself is on camping basis, meaning that you as a team will help erect and dismantle the tents and help with camp chores. You are also most welcome to get involved with the cooking if you wish. Most of the camping on this trek is wild camping amidst the mountains. You’ll stay in two-person tents which have enough room inside for your kitbags. Sleeping mats and bags are not provided.
For more info or to request a single room, please get in touch with us at email@example.com.
All breakfasts, 4 lunches and 4 dinners included
At Adventurous Ewe we make a special effort to source our food on Greenland itself and your Local Guide will buy much of what you eat at small local stores. The variety of foodstuffs available in Greenland is necessarily limited. The emphasis is on easily-prepared meals whilst on expedition. Your Local Guide will prepare your evening meals at the overnight camps however he or she will appreciate the help of group members – preparing vegetables, serving the food and washing up, for example. There will be the opportunity to forage for fresh herbs, mushrooms and berries to accompany meals or even catch an Arctic char for dinner with the support and guidance of your Local Guide. Evening meals will consist of 2 – 3 courses, usually a soup to start, a simple main and some cake for dessert. Breakfasts will consist of porridge, muesli, bread, jam and other preserves, plus tea and coffee. At breakfast, snack items and sandwich materials will be made available so that you can make up your own packed lunches. You may want to bring some of your own favourite snacks from home to supplement this.
Staying hydrated is important when undertaking any physical activity but particularly so at altitude where it is generally recommended to drink at least 2-3 litres per person per day. Drinking water will be provided on the trek but you need to treat it with purification tablets or another form of treatment.
Handheld UV filters such as a ‘SteriPEN’ are very effective, can treat 1 litre of water in a couple of minutes and the water is ready immediately – look for lightweight lithium battery models and remember that you will need to bring a wide-mouthed bottle (e.g. Nalgene) for use with these devices.
Adventurous Ewe has partnered with Water-to-Go, a filtration system that eliminates over 99.99% of all microbiological contaminants from any non-salt water source – for more info please click here. Adventurous Ewe trekkers will receive a free Water-to-Go bottle when departing for our Greenland Wilderness Adventure, and better still, 15% of the purchase value for replacement filters will be donated to our environmental charity partner, Cool Earth. Please note that if the water freezes it will clog up the filter – in this event, defrost before use by sitting the filter in lukewarm water for 10-15 minutes. Please help us reduce the volume of single use plastic in this pristine environment. We do not encourage the purchasing of single use plastic bottles.
Deposit: £295 per person on booking.
Remaining balance: £2600 per person. Payment due no later than 6 weeks prior to the trip departure date.
Total cost: £2895 per person
