IMPORTANT: This itinerary is a unique journey, designed and organized by Journeys International, together with Tasermiut, South Greenland Expeditions. It offers the adventure and discovery ingredients present in all our journeys. The route can be done as it is explained above or in reverse order. The order of the activities may not be exactly as described in this outline. Greenland is the wildest country in the northern hemisphere, infrastructure is almost non-existent, and logistics pose enormous challenges. This is why we may not follow this daily itinerary exactly as planned. The itinerary is subject to change in order to adapt the journey to weather conditions, sea conditions, or technical and organizational difficulties, and it therefore requires flexibility from the traveler.
