Mandatory Insurance
Since the areas we travel to on this trip are remote and wild (that's why we go there!), we require medical evacuation insurance for 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 trip is rated Extreme Adventure.

This expeditionary sea kayaking adventure has a flexible itinerary; the distance paddled each day depends on local weather and ocean conditions. We should expect to paddle not more than 5-6 hours each day, but if we have to struggle against the wind and current in order to reach a safe and optimal campsite for the night, we might have to paddle for longer periods. Generally, our paddling philosophy is not to “cover miles” for the sake of covering miles, but to follow an interesting route and explore as we go along, still keeping the end point of our journey in mind.

The hike we do on Day 2 is long and challenging, 7 to 8 hours (with lots of breaks), with part of our route cross-country over a trailless landscape—but the terrain is truly spectacular and worth every effort. The hike includes three easy river fordings and a 2,000-foot pass to ascend and cross. All other hikes on our itinerary take place from each day's beach camp, and all are optional.

This trip is not for people with back, shoulder or arm injuries, and we require that all participants have done some multi-day paddling trips previously. Our guides will help you improve your paddling techniques while we travel. You are not expected to be able to do a "Greenland Eskimo roll" in your kayak—the expedition-style folding kayaks that we use are exceptionally stable.
Important Information About This Trip
There is no better way to see Greenland’s remote and stunning coastal wilderness than in a self-propelled manner—on foot and from the seat of a kayak. Our paddling route is a classic “Point A to Point B" journey that takes place in the inner fjord system, which is more sheltered and protected from ocean swells and waves. We paddle safely among icebergs and along the granite shores of rocky islands. On land, we hike in trailless country—over boulder fields, scree and snowfields. Our campsites are often on sandy beaches or grassy flats.

This trip is for those who want to experience the High Arctic at its purest—and this this can best be achieved as a band of adventure-seeking wilderness enthusiasts working as a team for a successful expedition. Participants are expected to pitch in with setting up tents, occasionally helping in the field kitchen, and carrying common gear from the beached kayaks to camp.

Please note: The itinerary provided is meant as a guideline and is subject to change without notice. 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 Reykjavik Domestic Airport (RKV), Iceland, on Day 1 no later than 9:00 am, and depart anytime from Keflavik International Airport (KEF) on Day 16. Please note that Reykjavik is the chief domestic airport 1.5 miles from the city center, while Keflavik, 30 miles out of town, is where most international flights arrive and depart from. Please be sure to allow enough time to arrive and transfer to Reykjavik Domestic Airport by 9:00 am; in some instances, 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.
