Welcome to Greenland Explored

We are a specialist company that organises Greenland tours and holidays – the largest island and one of the wildest and most remote places on Earth.  A place where a tiny community of Inuit follow ancient ways of life amongst Greenland's vast Arctic wilderness of fjords and icebergs, glaciers, rugged mountains and fascinating wildlife.

Our partnership of leading Arctic experts and local Inuit hunters brings together a passion and knowledge of the area that is second to none.  We arrange all aspects of visiting Greenland, from a holiday or tour out of the ordinary to a specialist expedition and everything in between.  Our expertise allows us to customise our services to meet your requirements, whatever you want to do and wherever your interests lie.  We love Greenland, and we're sure you will too.


Our Tours

For those who would like to join an organised tour, we have a comprehensive programme throughout the year.  Going beyond a typical tourist itinerary, all our tours and holidays offer an insight into the real Greenland and epitomise what we have found to be special about this place. 

Whether it’s help with creating your own trip - alone or with a Guide, dog sledding and trekking, accommodation with a hunter and his family in a village, photographing or viewing the Northern Lights, expeditions and icecap crossings, indigenous cultural tours or an Arctic holiday out of the ordinary, we hope you will find that we offer the very best ways to visit Greenland.

Northern Lights Season!Northern Lights over a Greenland fjord
From November to March, the cold frosty nights of Greenland can bring magnificent displays of the Northern Lights.  This incredible natural phenomenon never ceases to amaze and inspire, and no photograph will do it justice. 
Greenland is a wonderful place to experience it, perhaps even at the end of a day's dog sledding or wildlife spotting on Greenland's west coast.  Full details here!

Summer Trekking, East Greenland
Once again our superb 'Hidden Greenland' trek in East Greenland was a huge success this year.  The trek explores a beautiful area of remote Arctic valleys, towering mountains and enormous iceberg-filled fjords.  The last two years have enjoyed superb weather on the whole.  We feel that is truly World-class trekking, and yet you're unlikely to meet anyone else out there!  Click here for details of the itinerary, trip reports and photos.

The Scottish Polar Academy, an ambitious new project headed by explorer Craig Mathieson, aims to take groups of Scottish youths to Greenland, then onto the North Pole.  Greenland Explored is working closely with Craig, providing Guiding and Logistics services, both in Greenland and at the Pole.  We're happy to announce that the first round of trips have just been successfully completed.  The Pole was reached on 24 April 2006 - what a beautiful place!
