Opportunity of experiencing the wilderness in South Greenland which is without doubt the best area for trekking tours.
The expedition will start by 3 days of easy trekking by your own through the tractor trails and marked paths that link the different farms which cover all the area.
Back to Qassiarsuk, we will get a RIB boat transfer to Narsarsuaq and our expedition will continue with a 3 days guided hike with a group into the untamed and untouched Land of Mellem Land.
In contrast to this glacial landscape barely visited by man, we will visit Igaliku and Qassiarsuk, ancient Viking settlements and, today, idyllic locations of farmers. Also we will sail towards the glacier fronts of Qooroq, one of the most active glaciers in Southern Greenland.
Active trip, physically challenging, but suitable for anyone who enjoys the outdoors, who doesn’t mind sleeping in a tent and goes hiking on a regular basis.
Flight Keflavik International Airport – Narsarsuaq. It’s also possible to get to Narsarsuaq from Copenhagen.
Reception in the airport and transfer in RIB boat through Tunulliarfik Fjord, usually covered by icebergs, to Qassiarsuk.
Accommodation in the Leif Eriksson Hostel in Qasiarsuk.
Hiking by your own through a tractor trail from Qassiarsuk towards Tasiusaq, populated by only one family who live on his farm throughout the year. It takes about two and a half hours through a unique environment, you will go up to a hill from which you will see the Sermilik fjord filled with icebergs from the Eqalorutsit glacier. Backpacks are transported by jeep.
Once you arrive to Tasiusaq you can have the opportunity to enjoy an impressive kayak excursion, surrounded by icebergs
Optional: Kayak excursion in the “Iceberg Bay”
A 2 hour sea kayaking trip for beginners among icebergs and ice in one of the safest and best place in the whole Greenland.
Dinner and accomodation in the Tasiusaq Hostel.
Self guided hike though a marked path to the Sillisit sheep farm.
Sillisit is one of the fourth isolated farms along the 13th km of the Eriksfjord’s coast heading south from Qassiarsuk. The scenery along this stretch, with horses and sheep grazing with icebergs in the background and rocky walls, where at any time it seems that we will meet with Eric the Red, is unforgettable. From there we can walk across to the majestic mountain of Illerfissalik on the other side of the fjord, above the mouth of the Qooroq glacier.
Beautifully located is an idyllic spot for an overnight.
Accommodation and dinner with the family in Sillisit Hostel (On a sheep farm).
In the morning set off on a new route by your own crossing the strip of land that separates us from the next fjord to the north, the Sermilik, always full of icebergs coming from the Eqalorutsit glacier.
This is an area for falcon watchers, is very impressive and with some rough terrain, crossing the strip of land that separates us from the next fjord to the north.

Preparation of materials and transfer in RIB boat through Tunulliarfik Fjord, usually covered by icebergs, to Narsarsuaq.
Start of the trek in the nearby Narsarsuaq mountains.
Ascent to Mellem Camp, travelling through lakes and rivers, towards Flower Valley. We will carry on with our hike through Flower Valley with spectacular views of an enormous valley created by the withdrawal of and subsequent sedimentation from the glacier, where there are abundant flowers. This is quite possibly the most famous excursion in all of Greenland.
We will go all the way from Kiattut Glacier, famous for its spectacular views, with unbeatable panoramic views of the ice.
We will carry on with the hike among tundra and lakes, toward the Mellem cabin, where we will set up camp.
Accommodation in tents at Mellem’s Camp.
Trek to the scenic overlook of Qooroq. We will continue our expedition with the trek until the scenic overlook point of the Qooroq Glacier. Impressive views of the glacier, one of the most active in southern Greenland. We will get right on top of the glacier, so we can observe its entire extent as it drops to the sea. Spectacular vision of ice breaking to the sea.
Accommodation in tents in Mellem Camp.
Descent from Mellem Camp. In the way back to Narsarsuaq and from a height of less than 1,000 metres, we can observe one of the most privileged panoramas in the south of Greenland. Walking in the Tundra and surrounded by green mountains and valleys dotted with lakes and rivers, we find ourselves in a setting of Inland Ice’s incredible mass of ice at our back (Qooroq and Kiattuut Glaciers) and fjords in front of us.
In the afternoon, we will visit the Qooroq Ice Fjord, where one of the most active glaciers in southern Greenland can be found. We will navigate on zodiac boat to the area where iceberg density makes it impossible to carry on. This is without doubt one of Greenland’s best images: wonderful sight of ice floating around us.
