This is an expedition in the true sense of
the word. We will travel and explore different areas around
Upernavik, eating newly caught fish and clams directly from
the beach. We will be kayaking into the icefjord and zigzag
between the icebergs. Maybe we will even see and meet a
whale or two.

instructor Sören Nikolaj Sörensen. Nikolaj was born in
Odense, Denmark 1977 and have studied biology for many
years. Shortly after finishing his degree he moved to
Ilulissat and started working in its Hospital. Four months
later he was employed as a bio-analytic by the department of
Health in Upernavik. 2015 Nikolaj will have been living here
for ten years and has contacts in all the area. Nikolaj is
