Greenland Expedition

There are so few places left on earth that can be described as truly remote and wild, but Greenland is surely one of them. Travel to the world’s largest non-continental island, where fewer than 60,000 people live in the tundra-like environment. Here, icebergs tower instead of skyscrapers and tiny settlements on the coast still rely on subsistence fishing to survive. Hike through boulder-strewn hillside to the ruins of an ancient Paleo-Inuit culture, breathe the purest air imaginable and crane your neck in awe of iceberg giants on this eight-day expedition.
