Snowmobiling Around Mountainous Sisimiut

I will admit, I was hesitant to go snowmobiling. As it happens, I am a seriously terrible driver, have no valid drivers licence (let alone an international one) and no winter sports cover on my travel insurance, so to go ahead and snowmobile anyway was not exactly a wise idea. In countries where tourism is […]

Packing List: Winter In The Arctic

MERINO WOOL THERMALS I have travelled in cold climates before. Winter in Europe – no problem. Autumn in the Arctic – not an issue. Until my most recent trip to Greenland, I had never once really needed my thermals. In Kangerlussuaq, the mercury plunged down to unbelievably cold temperatures (-41 centigrade on the coldest day) […]

Returning To The Ilulissat Icefjorden

I think Ilulissat may just be my most favourite place on Earth. I love the cold wind as it comes off the icebergs and laps my face. I love the sound of the Greenland dogs as they howl at the sun when it comes up. I love the burnt orange sunrises and the magenta sunsets. […]

Dog Sledding in Stunning Sisimiut

I landed into Sisimiut from Kangerlussuaq with high hopes and a lot of anticipation. Luckily, Sisimiut is one of those places that lives up to the hype. Located on the west coast of Greenland and home to approximately 5000 people, Sisimiut is the second largest town in all of Greenland. However, despite it being more […]

A Little Sun and A Lot of Snow at The Amazing Russell Glacier

If you only do one thing while visiting Kangerlussuaq, then you should absolutely make it a trip to Russell Glacier. The route to Russell Glacier is much the same as that which leads to the ice cap. I thought that driving the same route for two days in a row would be boring, but as […]

Walking On Top of The Greenland Ice Sheet

After freezing my butt off at negative 39 degrees centigrade, a little increase in temperature was more than welcome. Granted, -29 is still bloody cold, but that 10-degree increase makes an absolutely massive difference. On this particular day it was very cloudy, which has both pros and cons. On the pro side – heavy cloud […]

Welcome to Kangerlussuaq, Greenland

Ever been so utterly enchanted with something that you lose track of time? If not, then I implore you to book a winter flight from Copenhagen to Kangerlussuaq – and by god, make sure you have the window seat. After a pleasant four-hour flight (Air Greenland – you bloody rock) it was time to descend […]

A Few Hours in Copenhagen

Copenhagen has always been a city on my ‘to do’ list, so naturally, when it came time to book my flights back to Greenland, it made sense for me to fly via Copenhagen instead of Reykjavik – as I had done in the past. After a gruelling 33 hours of flights and layovers, I landed […]

For anyone who is travelling to Iceland in the near future, here’s a little guide to help […]

Snorkelling in a Blizzard

All too soon, it was my last day in Iceland. The five days flew by far too quickly and I was in no way ready to leave. I have enjoyed travelling all over Europe, but I can only name two or three places I have visited that I have loved so much that I have […]
