Greenland Ice Cap Expeditions
Crossing the Greenland ice cap is considered one of the classic Polar expeditions. We follow in the footsteps of Fridjof Nansen, the great Norwegian polar explorer who first crossed the Greenland Ice Cap in 1888. The “inland ice” as the local Greenlanders call it, is the second largest ice cap in the world (second to Antarctica). We begin our expeditions on the east coast in the town of Ammassalik. (You can fly to Ammassalik from Iceland ). From here we charter a helicopter that take us up on the ice cap. Our route roughly follows the Arctic Circle, 550 kilometers across the undulating vastness of the Greenland Ice cap to finish in Kangerlussuaq. Our expeditions are offered in April when the sun shines nearly 24 hours per day and the temperature are a comfortable -10 to -25 C.
