Iceland and Greenland: a three-hour flight from Keflavik to Narsarsuaq, with an unbeatable view from the air of Kap Farvel and the huge Polar ice-sheet, separates Europe from the unexplored Arctic… Are you going to miss this opportunity?
The treks are quite easy, approximately 3 or 4 hours walking, and suitable for most abilities. For the kayak optional excursion, previous experience in kayaking is not required.
Three-hour flight from Keflavik (Iceland’s international airport) to Narsarsuaq (Greenland) with views of Kap Farvel and the southern Greenland sea ice … we are now in the Arctic! Reception at the airport and transfer to the port of Narsarsuaq to cross the Eriksfjord, usually covered by icebergs, in the direction of Qassiarsuk. After staying at the Leif Eriksson Hostel we have the opportunity to take a walk through the village of about 50 inhabitants, mostly farmers. Dinner and overnight stay at the Leif Eriksson Hostel.
Zodiac boat transfer to Narsarsuaq and hike through the Flower Valley, enjoying the spectacular view of a valley formed due to the retreat and the consequent glacial sedimentation. We will walk until we can see Kiattut glacier and the landscape around it, with superb panoramic view of the ice sheet. This is probably the most renowned excursion in all Greenland. Greenlandic dinner with typical inuit dishes as whale, seal, caribou, mattak… Overnight stay at the Leif Eriksson Hostel.
Hiking to Tasiusaq farms, next to Sermilik fjord which is almost always blocked by the icebergs coming from Eqaloruutsit glacier. Then, we may continue our walk to the idyllic Nunataaq farm, with stunning views of the Eqalorutsit glacier front.
Optional: Kayak excursion in the “Iceberg Bay”, a 2 hour kayaking trip for beginners among icebergs in one of the safest and nicest spots in southern Greenland (70€ , two participants minimum).
Dinner and overnight stay at the Tasiusaq Hostel.
In the morning, hiking way back to Qassiarsuk and guided tour of the Viking ruins of Brattahlid, learning the history of the arrival of Eric the Red from Iceland at this small settlement in 985. Of particular interest are the reconstructions of a viking house (spacious but cold) and an inuit dwelling (small but warmer), transporting us back in time to the harsh conditions in which these people lived and it definitely shows us how the Inuit knew how to adapt better to the progressive cooling of the climate. Afterwards we cross the Eriksfjord towards Narsarsuaq. After check in at the airport we recommend you visit the Bluie West One museum, former US militay base untouched since the Second World War.
Optional helicopter excursion: enjoy a unforgettable helicopter flight over viewing the Fjord system and the immense polar ice cap. This is a 32 minutes flight with a 30 minutes ground stop on a fantastic and unique view point, very close to the ice cap. Price: 2.980 DKK (400 €) per person (4 participants minimum). The helicopter trip depends upon availability of air craft. Need to be reserved with some days in advance.
