October 2020 (subject to flight availability and the lifting of travel restrictions)
A unique opportunity to experience Greenland as the summer comes to an end and the local people prepare for the start of the winter season..
Conditions for kayaking at this time can still be very good, all be it a little less reliable than the summer months. Nights draw in and the temperature will be dropping, so we should expect to see some snow at sea level and on calm days experience the sea ice starting to form around the edges. It should also be a good time to experience the Northern Lights.
Many large ice bergs should still be around but the polar sea ice will have gone.
Once on trip, we will be wild camping and where possible staying in abandoned hunters cabins. Winter kit and dry suits are mandatory! This trip is for experienced paddlers.
The initial aim is to explore the further reaches of Sermilik Fjord, not normally accessible during the summer due to its considerable out flow of inland ice.
Departing Iceland 8th October - returning Iceland 22nd October.

Provisional dates subject to flight schedules
We are able to look at alternative dates if there is sufficient interest to make up a small team.
Also happy to plan specific projects in the future - such as club trips, youth development training or advanced expeditions.
The "Watkins Trail" and the "Hunters Cabins" are two new, advanced expeditions for 2021.
Bookings already in for 2021 - my trips are always popular and tend to fill pretty quick.
Dates to be confirmed... please contact me if interested.
