INUIT INSPIRATIONS

How do Puffins travel?

“Imarra”. It’s a Kalaallisut word that aptly describes the attitude of the Greenlandic Inuit. This isolated population has learned to brave the demanding natural conditions. Scattered by a massive ice sheet, impenetrable mountain ranges and countless fjords, sledge dogs and boats are their primary means of transportation.

“Imarra”. A word that captures a lifestyle that does not commit to future promises, but values the present day. “May be”. Travelling to Greenland calls for a flexible and creative spirit to adjust plans when needed. No stone carved itineraries, but good sense and skill to make the most of your visit and grasp opportunities. It is the true nature of any expedition.

At Puffins we share in this spirit that inspires. When you register for an expedition, we send you the provisional day-to-day travel scheme to guide your decision. In Greenland, you are safe in the hands of our expert crew whose sixth sense might alter plans for the best.

UNTOUCHED NORDIC WILDERNESS
UNTOUCHED NORDIC WILDERNESS
Shaped by ice

The ice sheet covers 80% of Greenland. Observe and listen to glaciers calving icebergs into the fjords. From ice sculptures to the largest big walls on earth, the ice is the island’s architect.

From Midnight Sun to Northern Lights

Every season has it’s high ‘lights’. In June-July, the Midnight Sun offers late night hiking & sailing opportunities. From mid-August, the ghostly shadows of the Aurora dance through the arctic nights. 

A labyrinth of fjords & mountains

A playground for mountain enthusiasts of every skill level. Venture into a maze of fjords and summit unnamed mountains.

Arctic wildlife

While on land, you might encounter musk oxen, reindeer, polar hares & arctic foxes. Spot breaching whales, seals or even the mythical narwhal. Look up and gaze at white-tailed eagles and gyr falcon. Watch the tundra explode in autumn colors.
