Greenland

Greenland is the largest island in the world and one of the last real adventure. Particularly East Greenland is still very original and unexplored. This is not a big surprise, because first in 1884 the Europeans arrived in the region.

The life in the Arctic is rough and marked by deprivation and the struggle with the nature. The villages are only tiny spots of civilization in the huge white wilderness of Greenland. To explore the areas surrounding the villages the dog sled is the best solution in winter. During the summer the boat is most important for transportation. But also hiking tours are possible, both as a short trip, as well as a multi day tour. In the towns and villages it is worth to visit a workshop, where ivory, bone, and reindeer antlers are processed (carved) to traditional sculptures.

Also the Greenlandic kitchen has to offer a lot that might be an "adventure" for visitors. But it is worth to try narwhale skin (Mattak), dried musk ox meat and ring seal. Also some other traditional Inuit dishes fit for the western taste.

In 2008 we started to explore Greenland under water. We learned that there are not many places where divers have been, so far. Specifically East Greenland was mostly unexplored. In 2009 a container with equipment was shipped from the Danish port Ålborg to Tasiilaq in Eastgreenland. In early summer 2011 we did a one month scouting. We were fascinated by the crystal-clear water, the icebergs and the unexpectedly colorful underwater world. We continued our voyage of discovery over and under water in August and September. With more open water also various whale species were around.

Today our exploration of the underwater world of Eastgreenland is ongoing. Photographers, film makers and everybody who wants to experience the real fascination of the Arctic is welcome to join on a small-group expedition or a custom-made arrangement!
