Mandatory Insurance
Since the area we travel to is remote and wild (that's why we go there!), we require medical evacuation insurance for this trip, to ensure our guests' safety. If you decline the medical evacuation insurance coverage offered by Natural Habitat, we request that you send us documentation of the independent coverage you have selected. We will add the cost of a medical evacuation policy to your tour invoice until you provide our office with proof of coverage including your insurance company's name, contact number and your individual policy number. Thank you for understanding that our policy exists exclusively in the interest of our guests' safety.
Physical Requirements
This adventure is rated Moderate/Flexible

Our Base Camp Greenland adventure is designed with a flexible set of activities to accommodate individual preferences and physical ability levels. Guests who desire more activity have a multitude of options, including longer hikes and sea kayaking excursions, while less-active guests can experience our spectacular environs with less exertion on briefer and/or less demanding outings. However, Base Camp Greenland is located in an exceptionally remote wilderness area, and all guests must be prepared for typical activities that take place in such a setting. At minimum, all guests must be able to walk at least two miles over an uneven, trailless landscape. While all activities from camp are optional and weather-dependent, this minimum level of physical capability is necessary for safety and will enhance enjoyment of your trip.

Typical daily activities will include hiking, kayaking and/or Zodiac excursions of varying durations, with options available for individual guests' desires and capacities. Hikes will take place near sea level, walking cross-country over trailless terrain. The opportunity will also exist to hike atop relatively flat glaciers with expert guidance in safely avoiding crevasses. Likewise, sea kayaking excursions will be offered both for the adventurous paddler who wishes to explore farther afield, and for those who prefer shorter outings along the coastline near camp. Our intent is to paddle in largely calm seas, though the water conditions can change with little notice. All kayaking excursions are accompanied by an expert sea kayaking guide.

Motorboat and Zodiac excursions in the nearby fjords are also included. These outings generally last a maximum of 4-5 hours, with opportunities for whale watching and stops ashore to observe wildlife and to explore geological and historic sights. Again, we expect to operate in generally calm seas, but conditions can change quickly. Our camp expedition staff is has arranged each day's itinerary to ensure that options exist to suit varying preferences. Whether you wish to spend more time in motorized Zodiacs than in kayaks or on foot, or you want to pursue longer hikes and paddling opportunities, we plan our slate of activities accordingly. 
Important Information About This Trip
There is no better way to see Greenland’s remote and stunning coastal wilderness than by small boat, on foot, and from the seat of a stable sea kayak. We travel by boat primarily in the inner fjord system, which is more sheltered and largely protected from ocean swells and waves. We cruise and paddle among icebergs and along the granite shores of rocky islands. On land, we hike in trailless country over boulder fields, scree and snowfields.

Please note: The itinerary provided is meant as a guideline and is subject to change without notice due to weather and sea ice conditions. On rare occasions, it may be necessary to deviate from our regular itinerary for reasons beyond our control. In these instances we will provide the best available alternative.
Getting There & Getting Home
Arrive at Keflavik International Airport, Iceland, on Day 1 no later than 6:30 am , and depart anytime from Keflavik International Airport  on Day 9. We will meet you on arrival at Keflavik International Airport and transfer you to Reykjavik Domestic Airport on Day 1 so that you arrive no later 9:00 am for our outbound flight to Kulusuk, Greenland. If you arrive in Iceland before Day 1, a prior overnight stay may be required. We recommend arriving in Iceland 1-2 days prior to our trip departure date, in case of unexpected travel delays.

We can best serve you if our Natural Habitat Adventures Travel Desk makes your reservations, as we are intimately familiar with the special requirements of this program and can arrange the most efficient travel. Please call us at 1-800-543-8917. Note that while we offer you the best possible rates available to us on airfare and additional nights' accommodations, you may find special web rates or better fares online.
