Nunatak Adventures is the first glacier guiding company in East Greenland, based in Kulusuk. This company is born from the passion for glaciers and a fascination for the culture of East Greenland.
We focus all our trips on glacier activities and mountaineering: easy walks and exploring ice caves, glacier hikes on the Greenlandic Ice cap, different levels of ice climbing and summit trips to peaks surrounded by glaciers, called nunataks.
We want to show you and discover with you new untouched wild areas and unnamed mountains.
What we offer is for someone who wants the real wilderness, ready to challenge yourself in places where you will feel really small and where the explore word has still a meaning.
Come to East Greenland with us and you will get your untouched wilderness experience!
Nunatak is a Greenlandic word and is a common glaciological term that refers to a mountain peak not covered by ice and surrounded by glaciers. The most popular areas in the world to see a nunatak are Greenland and Antarctica, the two biggest Ice caps on the Planet.
Very often nunataks have very sharp peaks because they have been carved by the glaciers for centuries. In Greenland, where its immense mass of ice slowly but constantly flows towards the oceans, the process of shaping mountains is happening every day.
The conditions to get to the glaciers of Greenland require great skills of sailing and years of experience in such a rough environment. That's why all our transportation is provided with the collaboration of the locals.
The biggest passion of the founders is to explore and live by the glaciers, as if they were their second home.
