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.
