Day 1. Reykjavík- Kulusuk
We arrive to Kulusuk in the early afternoon. We walk from the airport to the village of Kulusuk (3km/ 2m) - a village of some 300 inhabitants and visit the local shop as well as the tiny family run museum/collection. In late afternoon we travel with a speed boat to the Qinertivaq fjord passing beautiful icebergs along the way. We build our camp for the night at the bottom of the fjord, in a magnificent setting, surrounded by 1600m (5250 ) high, steep granite mountains. Walking: 1 hour. Boat: 1,5 hour.
Day 2. Sun Gate, Trout Lake and Sermilik Icefjord.
After breakfast we walk towards the Sun Gate mountain by the Trout Lake. Admire the reflection of the high mountains in the lake before continuing to its south end. After fording a small river we continue down a narrow valley still surrounded by high granite mountains. On our way we see rich arctic vegetation, willows, arctic craw berries and blue berries bushes (hardly lifting from the ground) and arctic flowers of all kinds, the most notable beeing the Arctic River Beauty. In the afternoon we start to get a view over to the west to the enormous Sermilik Icefjord, filled with icebergs of all sizes. The view is simply breathtaking with mountains and icebergs and the great Greenland Icecap lurring behind! Camp at the fjord. Walk 17 km (10,5 m), 7 hours. Ascent/descent: 300 m.
Day 3. Along Sermilik Icefjord to Paarnakajiit
We start our walk along the impressive icefjord. A tiny path takes us across steep boulder slopes and down to a small sand beach covered in small icebergs on low tide. A second beach has even more stranded icebergs. We cross the Iceberg Beach and on our way we ford a small river. We continue at the foot of high mountains, across scraped granite „whale backs“ and arctic tundra wetlands before arriving to a small peninsula called Paarnakajiit where we put up our camp. Walk 14 km (8,6 m), 6 to 7 hours. Ascent/descent: 200m.
Day 4. Paarnakajiit to Amitsivarriva Narrow fjord
From the Peninsula we walk by a narrow lake before arriving to an small and shallow fjord with yet another very impressive amount of small icebergs and stranded on low tide. We continue along the fjord and from its end we cross some relatively flat moorlands, along a beautiful river until we arrive to a bigger lake. We ford a small river and continue along the deep, blue/green lake. In the afternoon we arrive to a very narrow fjord, where we put up our camp. Walk 12 km (7,5 m), 6 hours. Ascent/descent: 150 m
Day 5. Amitsivartiva narrow fjord to Tiniteqilaaq and Tasiilaq.
The day starts with the climb up along a mountain ridge abow the Sermilik Icefjord. We climb to a fantastic view point at 500 m (1800 ft) and admire the vast view over the Icefjord to the west and the „Matterhorn“ like mountains to the East. We continue along the ridge with great view on both hands until we descend into Tiniteqilaaq, a tiny hunters village with less than 200 inhabitants. After a short visit of the village we take a boat to Tasiilaq, the capital of East Greenland, a town of almost 2000 people. Night in a guesthouse. Walk 14 km, (8,6M), 7 hours. Ascent/descent: 500m.
Day 6. Tasiilaq - Kulusuk
Early morning, we board the boat and approximately 40 minutes later we will be back in Kulusuk where out flight to Reykjavik will be waiting for us. Flight back to Reykjavík.
