This is an invitation to the latter type of journey - a sailing expedition with frequent Zodiac trips to the ice as we follow
the wild eastern coast of Greenland in the tracks of the great Norwegian polar explorer Fridtjoff Nansen, who in 1888 led
the first expedition to cross the Greenland interior. Then - for those who dare - we offer a flight across Greenland with
camping on the western slope near Kangerlussuaq at the foot of the rapidly disappearing Greenland Ice Sheet.
Warming with a melt of over 30 feet per year in some places has radically changed life in Greenland from that of a subsistence
fishing economy to one with a high value on tourism. Most settlements are confined to the western coast, and this is the most
commonly visited. Our expedition to the east coast takes us to a remote area with Antarctic-like terrain seen by few. You
can choose to visit one or the other side of Greenland - or sign on for a 15-day visit to both.
