Thule, the northernmost
Travelling to remote northern Greenland during the spring (February, March or April), after four months of polar night at 77º N and before the thaw, means witnessing a trip back in time. There is no other place in the world to live so intensely the authenticity of those great Arctic men who still using the same techniques of transportation and protection against cold which conveyed to Robert Peary to conquest the North Pole in 1909.
The only way to undertake this challenge is to participate in an expedition of several days to the edge of the ice in dogsled, where for thousands of years the rite of searching the narwhal has been repeated by kayaks made of wood, bone and sealskin. With temperatures of minus 30 degrees, dressing like them and sharing shelter in Inuit tents pitched on the sleds, the traveller collaborates with their "guide" and fellow sled while the caravan moves from one region to another, cutting above the ice when they see appropriate or doing route under high cliffs and hanging glaciers in a landscape of giant icebergs caught in the ice... Thule: the purest Arctic experience – undertaken alongside true residents of the Arctic.
A crossing in traditional style guided by local Inuit beyond the northernmost inhabited place in the world... Real game!
Environmental sustainability. We believe in a responsible tourism with unspoilt nature of Greenland, so all our trips are planned to have the least possible impact on the environment.
Safety. All our guides are expert about Greenland and know when either it is or it is not convinient to carry out an activity. Our safety records are unmatchable.
Local population. Our Inuit Climate Change Patrol ensures the maintanance of Inuit traditions by involving local people in utilization of a sustainable tourism.
To collaborate in the deepest knowledge of the most unfamiliar places on the planet and do so without affecting ecosystems. This is the philosophy that marks the Inuit Windsled Project, the only totally ecological vehicle designed for research in Polar lands.
Based on the ancient knowledge of the Inuit peoples, the Windsled developers have managed to create a means of transportation that combines tradition with modern means through kites that harness aeolian energy.
Inuit Climate Change Patrol;
In Thule today sled dogs are still used and the inhabitants go in search of their livelihood in cloth-lined kayaks, but we are witnessing the last generation of true Inuit hunters. Most of these people are between 45 and 60 years old and the next generation aren’t continuing in these traditions… Are we witnessing the last dynasty of the Kings of Thule?
This fear is the germ of the Inuit Climate Change Patrol, current project led by Ramon Larramendi (founder of Greenland.net)
