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. For this year we plan to do a little bit more
hiking than we done previously.
us on the expedition is our local kayaking guide and
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. 2017 Nikolaj will have been living here
for 12 years and has contacts in all the area. Nikolaj is
a trained kayaking instructor and has, since 2008, been
guiding kayaking-tourists and dog-sledge enthusiasts
throughout the Upernavik area.
Here are some more pictures from 2011 tour.
