Basecamp Greenland

For adventure travelers looking for the ultimate Arctic experience, this is it. Previously this region was accessible only via hiking or kayaking while camping in tents, or on a very limited basis by ship via short day excursions.

Base Camp Greenland offers an exclusive refuge of comfort in the Arctic, where guests enjoy rustic luxury surrounded by raw wilderness. Though it's located in one of the most remote places on the planet, the camp provides a host of amenities usually reserved for far more civilized locales. Guest accommodations are in eight individual safari-style tent cabins that house two persons each. Built of heavy-duty vinyl on raised platforms, each cabin has a private veranda with a view of the bay and Greenland ice sheet in the distance, offering a chance to enjoy a panorama of the wilderness in sublime solitude.

The Only "Luxury" Base Camp in Greenland
Constructed in 2015, our Arctic expedition camp offers creature comforts you'd never expect in one of Greenland's most far-flung sectors—including hot showers, private toilets and excellent gourmet meals. From camp, we have access to close-up views of the Greenland ice sheet by Zodiac. Our location near the edge of mighty Sermilik Fjord grants us an eye-level vantage point on huge icebergs floating by, and we occasionally see whales and seals in the frigid waters.

The camp accommodates a maximum of 12 travelers in eight private, heated safari-style tent cabins offering surprising amenities. This small group size ensures a quiet wilderness experience and personal attention from your guides. It's a markedly different experience to explore Greenland in this manner, rather than with hundreds of other travelers aboard a ship who all go ashore together. You'll also benefit from enlightening evening lectures presented by our guides, who are expert Arctic naturalists.

Spacious cabin interiors are warmed by an individual heater—welcome on chilly nights—though long summer days here are often quite mild and dry. Cozy tent cabins have twin beds outfitted with warm comforters and comfortable pillows, a sitting bench, carpet runner, hanging clothing storage, and an en suite odorless dry toilet and washbasin. Hot showers are available in a separate bathhouse segregated by gender. Guests enjoy social time in the common room, which houses the kitchen and dining area and serves as a lecture space for presentations. Excellent meals are prepared by our creative camp chef, with fresh and varied ingredients arriving regularly.

A hallmark of Base Camp Greenland is its eco-conscious construction. In such a pristine environment, we take every care to ensure that our footprint is minimal. Camp facilities are set up for two months in the summer and, with the exception of the storage shed, taken down at the end of each season, to reduce impact. In order to accomplish this, water piping and plumbing systems must be relatively simple and located in only one building—thus our shower block that is separate from the individual cabins. Camp solid waste is hauled away and disposed of in a biodegradable manner at the municipal dump in the community of Tinit—nothing whatsoever is left on site. Only biodegradable soap is used in the kitchen and showers. Though the Arctic summer offers long hours of daylight, cabins also have interior light provided by small individual battery-operated lanterns.
