PRICE TRAVEL: from 1990 €Greenland, EUROPE
At the start of this trip, we will fly from Constable Point to Ittoqqortoormiit by helicopter and stay in a guesthouse for one night to get to know the village.
During our stay, temperatures may get around –25°C or colder, although warmer and sunny days are very common in April and May. The coolest average min/ low temperature is -21 °C (in February and March). We will travel by dogsledges over the mountain passes of Liverpool Land, across the sea ice north along the east coast to some of the capes and off-shore islands, and then west through Liverpool Land and south along Hurry Fjord, before returning to the village again.
This a winter expedition to a remote area, and thus the inherent risks of such an activity exist. For most of the time, participants will be sitting on the sleds but there may be occasions when you will have to walk or help pushing the sled up steeper slopes. Participants should also be willing to help and participate with the day-to-day running of the journey, including helping to pitch/strike camps, cooking, washing up, collecting water and so on. The guides attending the tour are all local mushers.
