Enjoy an immersive cultural experience in the truly awesome landscape of Eastern Greenland.
Whilst living with the Inuit, we will be taught their age-old methods of hunting and fishing, travel by dogsled, eat traditional food (seal, halibut, cod, etc.), build snow igloos and enjoy traditional music and dance. We will stay in tents, snow igloos and hunting cabins, whilst enjoying spectacular views of fjords, glaciers and icebergs. We can expect to see seals, polar bears, walruses, muskoxen and the majestic Northern Lights.
The Ammassalimmiut of the east coast of Greenland were the last Inuit group to come into contact with the white man, when Danish explorer Gustav Holm located them in 1884, and are the last direct descendants of the Arctic Dorset and Thule cultures
Their relative isolation and strong links with the past have meant their cultural and survival traditions have remained largely unchanged – even their dialect is archaic compared to most of Greenland’s population. We will aim to become immersed in their unique Inuit culture; learning from their expertise and witnessing their techniques at first-hand.
