Back to the Wild
It is one of those places that is not often talked about or seen through the eyes of a tourist. It is as remote as remote can get, and we can understand how this old saying : “When you’ve seen the world, there is always Greenland!” came into being.
which is exactly why we wanted to go there.
And why we wanted to do it right. The biggest draw of this largest island in the world is its rugged and untouched natural beauty and we wanted to experience it wholly – sleep on it, eat off it, swim in it – basically wrap ourselves in all things Greenland.
Our good friends at Greenland Tours made it happen by inviting us on their Back to the Wild kayaking excursion. We had 6 days on the water and 7 nights in tents. We paddled 96 kilometers, saw countless massive icebergs, plus much, much more. I don’t believe we’ve ever thrown around the words “trip-of-a-lifetime” on this blog before, but today we do.
And we begin sharing our journey with you via video – a brief visual introduction into the stories you can expect to unfold here over the next few weeks. (Be sure to change the viewing quality to HD to see the crisp, glorious sights!)
In the next few weeks, we’ll be filling the blog with all the amazing things we encountered in Greenland! But beyond our usual story-telling, we also think it is important to provide you with a thorough review of the finer details of our journey and of working with Greenland Tours.
Note that our trip to Greenland was courtesy of Greenland Tours. They did not ask us to write a favourable review, and all opinions (as always) are our own. You can find the entire review here, but also stay tuned for many stories and photos!
