It’s quite often the first question I am asked after visiting all seven continents. To most, Antarctica is only a place of scientific research and for famous historical adventurers. However, there is a way to now visit Antarctica and has been for quite some time, but the problem was never logistics, it was the price. With tourism growing in this remote corner of the world, more and more opportunities for everyone to experience Antarctica are beginning to open up! Antarctica is just as addictive as it is incredible to visit. So put your polar boots and parka on and get ready for an adventure of a lifetime to the most remote continent on the planet, Antarctica!
Traveling to the furthest corner of the planet and living amongst Greenlandic Inuit hunters was one of the greatest adventures I have accomplished to date. Traversing the Arctic ice by dogsled I joined a hunting dogsled group into the wilds of Greenland to fish. hunt and experience this absolutely raw natural environment. Teaming up with Guide to Greenland we experienced something I can profoundly say might just be travels final frontier. Here is my video for this epic adventure! if you want to join along with the next expedition you can see it on Guide to Greenland website HERE
We all look for something special when we travel. An experience that no one else has had, something we can hold close to our heart for the rest of our lives. The crack of the whip erases my train of thought and I realize where I am. Gliding across the Arctic ocean of ice with my troop of dogs and Inuit hunter friends. Every so often we pass by bright blue glaciers the size of skyscrapers and mountains reminiscing a fairy tale scene. Being this remote, so far from the civilized world in a place that most will never even know exists is the kind of destination I have always dreamt of. This is travel, in its purest most special form. It’s a transformative experience that you will leave from as a new person. Welcome to Uummannaq, Greenland, the last true adventure!
Soaring above a bay full of thousands of massive icebergs in a bush plane,hiking along ancient Inuit paths past colourful villages, searching for families of whales, kayaking through Ice fjords and venturing to one of the largest disappearing glaciers in the world. These are just some of the amazing experiences to be had around the UNESCO town of Ilulissat on Greenland’s North.
Tourism in the Arctic is a new idea and because of how remote it is, getting here has kept the tourist crowds away. Instead, you will find the hardcore travellers. The one’s who venture to the ends of the earth hunting for their next great experience. And I can assure you once they venture into Ilulissat and join in on the authentic activities, they will never forget it. From the howling sled dogs, dazzling northern lights, hospitality from the Inuit locals or the stunning scenery, Ilulissat, Greenland is the next big travel destination!
