A Wilderness Adventure Retreat

Your adventure to Kuussuaq Camp begins with a scenic tour once you get on the boat for your transfer to our camp. The 3 hour cruise start from the town of Nanortalik, South Greenland. Aboard a comfortable boat, you will get to see the settlement of Tasiusaq, before sailing through inexhaustible scenery of majestic mountains which Tasermiut Fjord is known for. At the bottom of the fjord, you will find the enormous glacier, which is part of the Greenland ice sheet. This is a unique and once in a lifetime experience, that will drain you emotionally with its beauty. 

 

On the way back from the ice sheet, our captain will drop us at the Kuussuaq, where you are going to spend the rest of the day. In this camping we put emphasis on the area of forest, creek and of course the big lake of Tasermiut. Our camping is placed at the lake near the creek and this is where you will experience the irresistible scenery of mountains and a lake with a shoreline of 20 kilometers. The area is a neighbor to sheep farmers of Nuugaarsuk, the always charming Poulsen family. Who knows, perhaps you will get to visit them and enjoy a conversation over the coffee.

 

Fishing in the creek, swimming in the lake, take a stroll in the forest and in the evening, watch northern lights reflecting through the lake. In the morning before your breakfast and coffee, catch a sunrise coming from the beautiful mountains, I believe your breakfast will taste a lot better!
