Summary

Enjoy the pure nature feeling with the relative comfort of having a tent camp not too far from the nearest dirt road. From the lovely plateau next to a running stream we have a great overview to the surrounding mountains and plains, which gives us good chances of seeing musk oxen from camp site.

Description

Camp Tasersuatsiaq;

On a plateau next to a lovely stream we have our campsite with great view to the surrounding mountains. Wildlife such as musk oxen, caribou, arctic snow hare and arctic fox live in these mountains and especially the musk oxen are often seen directly from camp. In other words you can get the real nature and wilderness feeling in a tent camp not too far from the end of the dirt road.

Shorter hikes for musk ox sightseeing and the possibility of collecting arctic herbs, mushrooms and berries on the way. As we are in old Inuit hunting grounds we will pass Inuit ruins that tell the story about life here in the Greenlandic inland at the Arctic Circle.

In between the hikes and meals, you will have plenty of time to take in the moment and enjoy the surroundings, the silence and become one with the arctic nature. This is pure, arctic mindfulness!

We always eat the locally hunted meat from musk ox, reindeer and snow hare - usually we also supply with whatever herbs or mushrooms we can harvest in nature.

Maximum 8 participants.

Minimum age 12 years.
