You will need to arrive in Iceland the day before your flight to Greenland and stay overnight in Reykjavik also after the tour. Accommodation for these two nights is not included in the package.
Take morning flight from Reykjavik to Akureyri where the passengers for Greenland need to change to a smaller aircraft (Twin Otter or King Air B200) to continue to Greenland. After arrival in Constable Point (Nerlerit Inaat) there is another exciting trip waiting: a 15-minute helicopter flight to Ittoqqortoormiit village. Upon arrival at Ittoqqortoormiit heliport you will be met by your guide and be transferred by snowmobile to the village of Kap Tobin.
Take Greenland as it is. This is a complete different world. The Inuit culture is dying out and civilisation is taking over slowly. The Greenlanders as they prefer to be called, are having difficulties to get used to it. Nevertheless, their homes are equiped with TV, radios, telephones, mobile phones and even internet. Coming to a hunters home you might have to step over a dead seal at the front door or frozen muskox meat waiting to be stored away. Two worlds that coexist – hunting and modern life.
The next 7 nights will be spent in a privately owned home in Kap Tobin, which is a deserted village 7 km south of Ittoqqortoormiit. From there we will explore the surrounding area by dog sleds and snowmobile. In Kap Tobin there will be a chance to visit the Uunartoq hot spring and perhaps even take a bath! The tour leader will decide on final daily itinerary based on prevailing snow and weather conditions.
We will also have one full day in Ittoqqortoormiit village and give you time to observe and experience this special Inuit community. A local museum and handicrafts workshops will be visited.
Whichever route or area is chosen, rest assure that there will be breathtaking scenery. During your stay there is a good chance to observe wildlife, such as seals, narwhales, walrus, arctic foxes, little auks and if lucky the king of the Arctic - the polar bear. The hunters may take the chance to hunt seal for dog food. Average temperature this time of year is around –15°C.
On departure day we return to Constable Point airport by helicopter and fly back to Iceland.
Polar Bears are not strangers to this part of the world. When you decide to go off on your own, please let someone know about your programme, and at all times carry signal flares when walking alone. They can be purchased at the KNI store.
Depending on day of the week the flight is either operated from Reykjavík domestic airport direct to Nerlerit Inaat (CNP) or via Akureyri where the passengers change to a smaller aircraft.
