Northwest Greenland Sea Kayaking with Black Feather Guides

August 7 - August 21

$15,495

Qaanaaq Explorer Trip

Northwest Greenland has some of the most dramatic and inaccessible scenery on earth. Here we paddle the margin of the Greenland Ice Cap, “island hopping” from one dot of land to another as glaciers calve in the background. These waterways are the home of Inughuit (the Great People), the most direct descendants of the Thule people that populated Canada’s High Arctic. These people maintain an amazingly intact hunting culture and still actively use the fjords for hunting narwhal. Paddling days are interspersed with day hikes to allow for some amazing views.

This expedition is suitable for those with some previous sea kayaking and wilderness camping experience. Intermediate to advanced kayaking skills are recommended. The isolation, cold water and ice, and 12 days of wilderness camping make the trip unsuitable for the complete novice.
