Enter the alien, lunar landscape of remotest Greenland and spend 2 weeks living under canvas whilst walking, exploring and carrying out your own field studies.
This exciting expedition offers wilderness in the extreme with permanent daylight, an expansive uninhabited landscape, and a sense of isolation rarely experienced in modern times.
You will visit Liverpool Land, an area untouched by even the Inuit people, and reachable only by helicopter. You will spend two weeks under canvas, walking, exploring and carrying out your own field studies. Food is rationed and some shooting skills are needed.
What to expect
This an unique opportunity to explore and travel through a true wilderness. Liverpool Land is a remote and rugged region of the world that is rarely traveled. Because of its extreme remoteness, teamwork is key and the experience will give you ample opportunity to develop your leadership skills. You will take on more responsibilities at the journey progresses, developing an awareness of your own strengths and building your resilience. Everyone will have to play their part in decision making each day and agree camp life ground rules and objectives for the trip. There will also be an opportunity to get close to the local community in the region and to better understand the environmental and global issues affecting them.
More about the trip
This is a 14 day expedition and you travel and camp in a group of about 8 young people and 2 leaders. The walking terrain will be similar to summer hill walking conditions on rugged bare rocky terrain with similar gradients to North Wales and Lake District. On occasion there may be snow patches to traverse where crampons and ice axes may be needed but no technical climbing or ice climbing as such. There'll be plenty of wet stream crossings and a small risk from bison and polar bear. You will sleep in tents with stoves in the wilderness and stay in budget hotel accommodation travelling in and out of the region.
A satellite phone is provided and all participants will be trained in the safe use of firearms and animal deterrents. Accompanying staff have relevant expedition experience and are qualified advanced first-aiders.
Please note: For safety reasons all our routes may vary to accommodate individual abilities within the group, difficult weather conditions and the availability of accommodation.
