Greenland: An Epic Arctic Adventure
Nat Hab Chief Exploratory Officer Olaf Malver takes you to the front lines of climate change in East Greenland, one of the planet’s most remote wilderness areas. Travel to Base Camp Greenland, our deluxe expedition camp at the edge of the rugged Sermilik Fjord and the Greenland ice sheet, where adventurers explore via kayak, Zodiac, hiking and encounters with local Inuit villagers. Nowhere is global warming more evident than the edge of this vast melting ice sheet. You’ll bear witness to massive glacial calving as you scout the sea for humpback, fin and minke whales, seals and seabirds. With more than 40 visits to Greenland, no one is more prepared than Olaf to share an intimate encounter with this sweeping expanse of Arctic tundra and the changing landscape. Plus, he helped pioneer the Base Camp creature comforts that ensure your expedition is something extraordinary!
As one of the most isolated places on Earth, East Greenland offers an adventure unlike any other. In this footage from Natural Habitat's Base Camp Greenland, guests explore the Sermilik Fjord by zodiac, kayak among sea ice and experience some of the best hiking in the North.
