My experience was fantastic and TBH if you don't have a brilliant time, there must be something wrong with you. The whole expedition was amazing from start to finish and I felt very involved and part of the planning and decision making process. As he says the location is "world class" , that's for sure. I had never paddled an Explorer before but am now a convert. Spending time in the settlements and doing food shopping added to the experience and gave a bit back to the community. It was easy enough to organise and I ate better than on most trips. Bear watch was quite fun and gave us the chance to see all the hours of the day. We never saw a bear though, which I must admit I have mixed feelings about. The whales were fantastic and numerous.
Martin has had a significant number of kayakers who have returned, often several times and some even advanced to assisting him guide later trips.
I am sure if the cost was not a factor, most folk would jump to do a repeat trip with him.
I will be back for sure, if he will have me that is... Sean Hurrell Trip three - 2019.
In 2018 my husband and I had a wonderful trip with Martin.
He is an excellent kayak guide and knows the area like the back of his hand.
Safety of the group is his main concern in this remote and wild part of Greenland and that is reflected in his attention to planning and daily route selection.
During our trip we had some fantastic whale sightings and paddled amongst amazing ice burgs. The scenery is very spectacular.
In 2020 we're going back with him to explore a slightly different part of this same area.
If you're looking for a memorable kayak expedition in a lesser known part of Greenland, then Martin is your guy!
