Kayaking tours in Greenland

For your own wellbeing and safety we strongly suggest following the advice of our equipment list, this includes having good quality rain-gear, tops and bottoms! Also respect that cotton clothing is not appropriate for any strenuous outdoor activity – this includes jeans and cotton t-shirts. Modern outdoor clothing is by far more comfortable and will greatly improve your experience. It is recommended to follow the equipment list although it is necessary to pack light as everything (equipment + food + tents) needs to fit the kayaks.
