A Closer Look at Natural Habitat's Base Camp Greenland

Location
Sermilik Fjord, East Greenland

It’s hard to put into words the sense of solitude and wonder you feel on the outer east coast of the world’s largest island, encased in ice except for a temperate coastal fringe during the short summer.

Until we established our deluxe Base Camp in East Greenland, travelers had no options but to trek overland or kayak from point to point while sleeping in nylon tents and cooking over a camp stove. But in our quest to make wild and remote places accessible—and comfortable—for our travelers, we’ve changed that. We built our own safari camp, Arctic-style!

Inspired by the concept of an African safari camp, Base Camp Greenland is the first deluxe expedition camp of its kind anywhere in Greenland. Set on a tranquil, protected bay at the mouth of a broad glacial valley flanked by granite cliffs, the camp enjoys a striking wilderness setting.

Eight private tent cabins offer a comfortable refuge for adventurers, with surprising “luxuries” given the extremely remote location. Built on heavy-duty vinyl on raised platforms, each cabin has twin beds with cozy comforters, en suite toilets, wash basins, and a private veranda with views of the Greenland ice sheet. Spacious interiors are warmed by individual heaters to keep you cozy on chilly nights here near the Arctic Circle.

After a day of hiking, kayaking and Zodiac outings among the icebergs, whales and seals in Sermilik Fjord, return to camp to indulge in a hot shower, a sunset drink on the patio, and fine cuisine prepared fresh daily by our creative camp chef.

You’ll be amazed at how well taken care of you'll feel in one of the farthest-flung places on Earth!

Spacious cabin interiors are warmed by an individual heater—welcome on chilly nights—though long summer days here are often quite mild and dry. Cozy tent cabins have twin beds outfitted with warm comforters and comfortable pillows, a sitting bench, carpet runner, hanging clothing storage, and an en suite odorless dry toilet and washbasin.

 A hallmark of Base Camp Greenland is its eco-conscious construction. In such a pristine environment, we take every care to ensure that our footprint is minimal. Camp facilities are set up for two months in the summer and, with the exception of the storage shed, taken down at the end of each season, to reduce impact. In order to accomplish this, water piping and plumbing systems must be relatively simple and located in only one building—thus our shower block that is separate from the individual cabins. All trash and recycling is taken back to Tasiilaq—nothing whatsoever is left on site. Only biodegradable soap is used in the kitchen and showers. Photo © Bill Gent and Diana Russler
