Visit Gino Watkins Base Camps 13th - 22nd July 2022
In collaboration with a very experienced local guide, I have put together an extremely unique 12 day trip for the summer of 2022.
The objective is to visit both of the Gino Watkins base camps.
Camp at each and fully explore.
Also access the inland ice in the vicinity where Watkins and his team would have accessed with a potential overnight bivi.
The trip will visit many sites documented in the various Watkins / Chapman books and explore others too.
You will be traveling and living with local people and my guide.
On this expedition access is by hunters boat - not kayaks.
English speaking local hunters / guides will facilitate the expedition - taking care of boat logistics, safety and any bear defense issues.
One of my Watkins expert’s - who has kayaked with me in and out of both expedition sites will be with you for the duration of the expedition.
You will be journeying approx 400 miles, through some amazing area’s and transit spectacular sections of coast - all the time surrounded by ice bergs, sea ice and the ever present Greenland icecap.
Boat pick ups and return to airport.
Tents. Cooking gear. Food, stoves and local accommodation when scheduled in settlements or hunters cabins is all provided.
This is a fantastic opportunity to immerse yourself in and experience the unique culture and history of a remote part of Greenland, where subsistence hunting and the changing seasons dictate the way of life.
There are only 4 places available on each trip.
Dates to be confirmed. July and August 2022
£ 4800 - this is not including flights.
